Check Engine

A solid-lit check engine light means your vehicle is in need of maintenance. While it is safe to continue driving, you should take your Subaru to a certified mechanic as soon as possible. If your check engine light is flashing, your Subaru has a severe issue and continuous driving could damage important components of your vehicle.
