If your check engine light is blinking that means an ignition misfire has been detected
blinking, breathing, running.
The question is why do you think it should? Is there an overheating problem with your Outback?
If your check engine light is blinking with the engine running , an ignition misfire has been detected . Take it in and have it scanned for trouble code(s) in order to diagnose and repair the problem . Try not to accelerate quickly while taking it in for repair as this could damage the catalytic converter(s)
Depends if you have the ignition running or just the say you left the lights on. If you just left the ignition on all night nothing will happen except just running out of fuel. If you left your lights on without ignition running your battery will die.
the check engine light is blinking and my 03 Nissan exterra is running rough
No. While many parts of the outback are desert regions, a large amount is reasonably fertile land, suitable for growing grain crops, or for running sheep and cattle.
There is a switch above the steering column that you need to flip back. I think it's there so you can have a little light when camping without draining the battery as much but I'm not sure.
99 jeep Cherokee Laredo stay running after turn off the ignition switch?
Change the ignition. Take a pare of pliers, turn it back, then change the ignition.
I had to do this on my 96 850, and no, I did not have to have it running, just on accessories on ignition.
Driving a Subaru Outback once (I was borrowing it from a friend), the engine suddenly quit running because it was low on oil. It was a safety mechanism on the car so it wouldn't ruin the engine. I am sure there are plenty of other reasons for it to quit, though.
check your answer
No, but it can stop the fuel pump from running. It has nothing to do with ignition.
Switch on top steering column was flipped . clean car recently?
Sounds like the engine heats and the ignition fails.
Headlights run off the battery not the ignition...
When any car idles, it lowers the ignition energy (but not completely) to keep the car running. When it is cold outside, your Subaru's ignition energy is lost through heat because electricity also is measured through heat. When there is less ignition energy when it is already running on a lower ignition level, the car (your Subaru) is not likely to idle.
maybe ignition modual
Disconnect the battery.
It sounds like your dizzy cap isn't lined right which causes the engine to stay running after the ignition has been switched off. i had the same problem with my fiesta
Check Gas pump and relays
Applying the parking break works for me.
A diesel vehicles does not need to be running. A diesel ignition in a Diesel engine comes from compression and not spark.
