Default Check engine light, VDC light is on, and cruise control and sport light is flashing

I was driving home on my way from work, about half way during my commute the cruise control light starts flashing along with the sport mode [s] light. The check engine light along with vdc symbol for off appears on the dash. I can't even switch to I nor S# mode. I hope its not something serious, just in case I kep the car under 2,000 rpm's and listend to make sure the turbo wasn't making any unusal noise. I have the gold plus extended warranty til 60k. Car was purchased new from Subaru of Nashu, back in august of 08 and it currently has 47,859 miles.

Sounds like O2 sensor or something died, either way it's the dealer's problem if it is under warranty.

I called the service dept at the dealer today, told them my problems. They asked me if I had at least a half of tank of gas. They said the gas cap might be loose to check that. Drive for a day or two and see if it changes things. Than if not to make an appointment. I'll check the gas cap, and maybe reset the battery see if that changes things. I also might swing by autozone to pull some codes.

Loose gas cap will set off check engine light. But your car seems like it is in limp mode - doubt the gas cap will do that.
