Will it run?
this is a bit tricky because of the squealing noise. It sounds like it's possible something happened to the drive belt for the alternator and the battery lost power. This would kick on a bunch of lights and cause the engine to lose power. This is because the lower voltage makes the computers act off.
That being said, I would first look at the belt and the engine oil level. If both are fine, then I would suspect something happened to the timing belt or the water pump causing the timing to be off. If this happens the timing belt can slip and that would leave you in a no power situation and the check engine light would come on. The cruise is disabled as soon as the check engine light comes on, this is normal. The odd man out is the a/t temp light. This doesn't usually come on if the check engine light comes on, so this is my reason for thinking possible drive belt issue.
This is where I would start checking and the order as well.

Very sorry to hear of this. I would contact Subaru of America at 1-800-Subaru3 and start a claim. They will likely cover the whole cost for you, or at least a partial. They are big on owner loyalty and I have done several repairs under warranty that should not have been.
Best of luck with them.
Certainly am sorry for all your woes, it's likely they would take care of it if you could be without the car.
The dealership you choose may have a loaner car for you to drive.
