Subaru Crosstrek Won T Start Dash Lights Flashing
Subaru Crosstrek Won T Start Dash Lights Flashing – A pleasant surprise awaited me this morning on my way to work. Shortly after restarting after a cold start, almost all of the warning lights came on (including a warning that also appeared on the LCD screen).
I called the agency and have an appointment tomorrow. Still running but still undergoing engine/emissions check and rack check. Any guesses? The car only has 5800 miles on it – I hope this is not a sign of the future.

I knew before (as I have a few times) that car restoration is “competitive” in a way, but I didn’t think much about it.

I suggest you keep a detailed record of the date, time, temperature, problems, and check to see if your state has lemon laws. This thing is very new and not many mechanics know about it. Hopefully this is an easy fix. Successful!
Earlier this year I had a strange problem where a lot of lights came on. In a bit of a panic, I called my dealer. I was asked to check… wait for it… the gas cap. My wife was driving the car and left it unlocked. I turned it on and they solved the problem. I was totally skeptical when I was told this, but it worked. I also have a hybrid and it has been flawless.
So it was probably an ECU failure due to noise interference. The technician said that the investigation told them to reset the code and see if it reappears and that there may be a software update that will fix it. The tech said they hadn’t seen this problem – but the dealer only handled about 3 combinations so their sample was very small.
I wasn’t exactly happy with the results as I’ve never had a new car with a check engine light come on – so I guess it’s a wait and see thing here.
Suv Review: Does The Refreshed Version Of The Subaru Crosstrek Meet New Expectations?
I had the same problem and it turned out to be my TCM module – transmission control. After troubleshooting it was sent to the factory and replaced – so far it has been working fine. Basically the car didn’t know the gears or what it was doing. It still drives, but it’s hard to get out of park or back into park – so if you don’t have those problems, it probably isn’t.
When I restarted after disconnecting the battery all the warning lights came on. I cleared the check engine code with my ultra meter and everything was back to normal.
When I first took it to the dealer, under warranty, they said they saw the code, but the light wouldn’t go off when they started it.
The second time they blamed me for changing the oil. They tried to say that I wasn’t using the right oil and that I wasn’t using a Subaru oil filter. I showed them my receipt and they said the Subaru filter has a check valve and the aftermarket filters don’t. I called Bess but they changed the filter and oil, reset the code and sent me on my way.

For the third time, they repaired and opened a Subaru service card. I was told it threw some kind of conflicting camera code. The factory sent out a factory service representative who began replacing the parts. Replaced the OHV, sprocket and cam cover and finally replaced the computer. They tell me that fixed it. The repairman drove it home and back this morning and is waiting for a call.
I will be contacting the dealer as he has had the same problem 3 times in less than 12 months or 12,000 miles.
It happened to me – all the lights came on and it was funny and then I couldn’t even get out of the park. Turns out it’s the TCM – transmission control module, the car can’t tell what gear it’s in – easy fix but took a while for the shop to figure out – these are new combos and don’t work. a lot.
Basically the brain tells the car what to do – drive forward or which gear or whatever went south. About 4000 miles so far and all good after TCM replacement.

Check engine light, vehicle assist and motion control, flashing! Then I had problems with acceleration! I was going 5mph, 2000rpm on an incline, the throttle was on the floor! I panicked and drove straight to the dealer!!! It took two days for a Subaru technician to diagnose the problem. He said the problem was OCV! “They replaced the OCV valve and camshaft and it should be working now.” If he comes back they say they have to change the face of the cameras! So far so good until home, but time will tell. The car has only 6000 km!

I called Subaru and they said to stop it. The next day they said it was cam damage, whatever it is, and to change the oil every 6K instead of the recommended 7500K. Yesterday, exactly two weeks later, it happened again! He stopped the car again.
Today they called once and said they changed the oil — oil — oh, I don’t remember what it was, but it’s ready anyway. 30 minutes later they called and said I was checking on something else and they would let me know when it was ready. Then they called me and told me they were running and collecting the data from the computer and sent it to the manufacturer for review. So I’m waiting for tomorrow’s news. Meanwhile, I’m also looking for a lemon law in my state. I am disappointed with this experience with a new car with 6800 miles on it. Now I’m not happy with Subaru.
UPDATE: They called and said they would send an engineer out to evaluate it and that it was “really new to Subaru”. They will replace the OSV but he said they need a few more days for an engineer to check some data and figure out what the problem is I think.

I am very interested in this matter…the same thing happened to me in the first week of ownership. As it happened, it was also very cold outside (about -5F) so my mileage wasn’t that great anyway. The seller made it look like they updated the firmware on the computer. The problem is gone, I hope it stays that way.
All the lights came on (check engine on, others and “ATS OIL TEMP” flashing intermittently) along with a warning to start the car.
It happened within 2 days, but of course it took one business day, it stalled, nothing was found… (but they did mention the transmission control system if they bring it back).
I like the car (except for worse gas mileage than my old Prius… but that’s the type of vehicle I want…) so far (no issues…).

I bought a new 2015 CT Hybrid 6 months ago. Other than the noise others have mentioned, things were pretty normal until last week when I got the dreaded “all the warning lights” syndrome. It was at the dealer for 6 days while they tried to figure out the problem. Yesterday they said it was released and we have to wait for the various parts and wait at least another 3-4 days. This seems more widespread than the TCM problem that others have encountered.
The service manager said that this problem has been solved in the production line and the new vehicles will not have the problem. All well and good, but right now I feel like I’m stuck with a ticking time bomb. Not sure what the future holds for this car. The dealer fix doesn’t seem to work for everyone.
