If the light is blinking

If the light is blinking while driving, an engine misfire condition has been detected which may damage the emission control system.

To prevent serious damage to the emission control system, you should conform to the following instructions.

● Reduce vehicle speed.

● Avoid hard acceleration.

● Avoid steep uphill grades.

● Reduce the amount of cargo, if possible.

● Stop towing a trailer as soon as possible.

The CHECK ENGINE warning light/malfunction indicator lamp may stop blinking and illuminate steadily after several driving trips. You should have your vehicle checked by an authorized SUBARU dealer immediately.
