Customer Question
Check engine light came...

Check engine light came on this morning as well as cruise control.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Blinks

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Subaru?

2007 Impreza

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Impreza yourself? What have you tried so far?

Only tried to shut off the cruise, but no action I do need an oil change, if that is the reason the check engine light is on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is my car safe to drive with either light on?
