Goodluck! , When I try to engage the cruise control, the dash light flashes, but it doesn't stay on. , cruise light automatically comes on when there is a malfunction that causes c.e.l to illuminate,this occurs because your accelerator is electronically controled , Lift the pedal, and see if the light goes off, if it does, there is a switch on the pedal that is out of adjustment. If it does not go off, the switch could have fallen off, or it is broken. Anyways, it is under the dash, should be right up the brake pedal. First, try to adjust it, to get it closer to the brake pedal arm, if it doesn't go off, it should be bad, take it off, and take it to the auto parts place, they should be able to test it, with a multimeter. This is probably why the cruise control does not work also, as when you drive down the road and hit the brakes, the cruise goes off. , Take the car to Autozone or similar business for a free code read with a scanner. Depending on what turns up, they will be happy to sell you any needed parts. , I have owned five Subarus and this is a problem I that have never seen before. When your TCS light comes on, it disables cruise control, so that part should not worry you. Since your TCS and check engine light came on together, I suspect the "problem" was with the transmission. It sounds like a one-time "fluke". You can go to any good auto parts store and ask to borrow their ECM analyzer.... it is a "box" that wil talk to your Tribeca's computer and let you know exactly what the problem is. You connect it to the jack by the drivers side left knee, then turn the key on (but do not start). Follow the directions on the screen and it will give you a readout of what problems it sees. Copy down the displayed information in case you need it.... The code number(s) and description(s) can be very helpful. Follow the on-screen instructions and clear (erase) the problems. Turn off your car, disconnect the box, and after you return it drive home and see if the lights come back. You may have had a "freak" occurance, and that is what I am hoping happened... you hit a pothole or bump just right and the computer lost its mind for just a second.... If it gives you any peace of mind.... the 3.0 H-6 Subaru engine is the absolutely most solid, best performing engine I have ever experienced in a car.. Mine was a 2001 LL Bean Limited and I LOVED IT! My big mistake was giving it to one of my children.... but that story is best left to a blog and not this forum!!! Good Luck! VA
