2010 legacy- cruise and vdc light on, and brake light

Customer Question

Hi, 2010 legacy- cruise and vdc light on, and brake light flashing. No codes to be found. Took to dealer and Subaru computer "says" faulty abs module. The cruise was cleared by the tech but VDC and brake are still on. Any thoughts
JA: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?
Customer: Fluid is good and all of the lights are good, also put grease on the gas cap.
JA: Are you fixing your Legacy yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I cant read or clear the codes as they only show under the Subaru system. The car worked fine for 20k miles but I want to sell it in the next month.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: The battery is original and I read that Subaru tolerance is specific. The battery works in all temps and seems fine, no issues.

Hi Im David, take it to another shop, not the dealer. have them interrogated the abs module for fault codes. second opinion from a non dealer is always my recommendation.

checking in to see how everything is going.

No codes to be found by other non-Subaru can-bus readers.
Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

there is a technical service bulletin out for this. you need to have the dealer comply with it.
