The front oxygen (air fuel ratio) sensor element may develop a crack, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Subaru has recalled certain models to replace sensors that may fail. The Subaru service program number is WXW-80, this is not a government mandated recall.

Check Engine/skid/brake & cruse lights all came on at the same time, took it back to the dealer, they said it was a spider web and cleared the indicators. Nor it came on again! These cars are built for the outdoors can a spider do this? Or is this a recall item?

Just had fuel pump replaced and now the check engine light is on. went to AutoZone and they coded it as a Back Stream oxygen center but a friend told me that my car, an H6.0 outback has 2 up front and 2 in the back...do I need to have them all replaced?

Yesterday I changed all four disc brakes will new slotted disks and ceramic pads. The check engine light, anti skid off light are on and the cruise light flashes. I ran the code and got P1155, reset and it repeated. Could the o2 sensor been disturbed when I jacked up the car?
