Thanks.
go to any AUTOZONE store give them deposit and rent OBDII auto scanner, read the code, reset the code, check IAT connection, and should be good, I had same problem with my 07STI before, but i removed stock air filter and i install Cobb Intake but i didn't connect good enough the IAT and it showed me a cel with cruse control blinking. I'm talking about this http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f3...4/100_1763.jpg it not my pics, i just found online, so yup get the OBDII scanner and check the code, you don't have to buy it (i think it's 200$) maybe less, but you can rent it for deposit only and they will give you money back
hopefully this will help you

Thanks anyways,, but i figured it out,,, All I did was double check to make sure I put it back on right,, which I did,, And I unplugged the neg on the battery for 5 min and plugged it back on,, started her up, and all was well.

And I did it because I cant afford any mods yet, payments are HUGE, and I like to get to know my car so I take things apart and put them back together so when I can afford mods I know what Im doing,, Makes it easier for me so I get my mods in quicker so I can enjoy them faster... Im impatient. lol

that's kinda different, but if you say so, just to make sure you put EVERYTHING back like it was before you touch it!!!!

taking things apart and putting them back together is a great way to learn about how things work and how to fix them. used to do it with lawn mowers and other small things. I don't suggest doing it with your daily driver, but hey why not

Default So I just did the same thing hahaha

Yeah I just forgot to replug the senser back in and then when I remembered I had the car running and it didn't like that at all... yeah the car shut off and when I restarted it the check engine light came on and the cruise control is flashing and the traction is on.. So if I pull the negitive off the batt. for like 5min then I should just turn it all off then?

The light should turn itself off after three drive cycles if you really did correct the problem
