Angry ABS light just came on - 97 miles!!

What the heck is this about? I just bought my Silver WRX Wednesday and tonight I was just driving leisurely along and the ABS light came on.

After further investigation the neither speedometer, driving lights nor cruise control worked. FUSE??

On the way home the CE light came on in a right handed sweeper. Wasn't going fast but bling...the CE came on.

Any thoughts?

Erh, that's ridiculous! 97 miles? And you get that sh**? Bring it to the dealership and have them scan it to see what codes they get... Then complain (but be nice, i've discovered subaru dealerships don't like it when you're mean )

Was you parking brake fully disengaged? If it's up a click or two, the DRLs will switch off, and you may get an ABS light. In any case, you should take it to the dealer for the CE light.

The parking brake was fully disengaged.

When I read the manual regarding the CE light it suggested the gas cap be reapplied. Looks like there may have been a link to that and the emissions.

Anyway. The dealership still has my car . Initially they said it may be a speed sensor which I don't understand because the driving lamps, cruise control, nor highbeams didn't work. They said it must be a computer error and that they couldn't get to my car until Monday. CRAP! I was hoping to put the Zymol on my new car.

Gearbox VSS sensor. The ABS uses it to compare. Failure will cause check engine light too. Should also cause the car to be in limp mode, and no cruise.

Dunno about high beam though. Lights switched on on the stalk?

Default Back from dealer-update

Well I finally got my car back from dealership.

I called SOA for assistance. Told them I am very unhappy with the car and am considering selling it because my confidence is damaged with my brand new car.

No response yet from SOA.

Dealer said a male/female clip wasn't seating properly with was arching and blowing a fuse and a relay. They gave me a very detail work log for the past 3 days.

Oh well. Crossing my fingers nothing else goes wrong.
