I am a proud owner of a STi delivered by Roper Subaru in Joplin, MO.

Yet, I have not been able to take delivery because my car as well (2 others cars on NASIOC) has had a check engine light and a cruise light that won't go away. I am thankful that my dealer and salesman (Jerry Hentz) have been working feverishly to solve the problem. They have been on the phone to Subaru Tech Line and to the Subaru reps and have solved the cruise light problem by replacing the fuel sending unit sensor. The Check engine light continues to stay on even after resets. It is giving a 1460 or 1480 code, which refers to the fuel sending unit sensor that was replaced. A Subaru rep is coming from St. Louis tomorrow to try to help solve the problem. I will keep you updated.

If anyone else has had this problem and has a solution please respond. I want to take my baby home (although I appreciate that my dealer does not want to deliver it until it is right)!

Hey Jim. I have no knowledge of the problem. I haven't seen a bullitin or heard any about such a problem. It is good that your dealer is fixing the problem now, though. If the light is on constant then it should be okay to drive. If a light flashes, then you have a more seirous problem!

any die-cast models?

Thanks Murley. I have appreciated your input to the forum. Here is what Subarupilot on NASIOC (a guy with a similar problem had to say):

Well, I went out and purchased the Actron OBD2 scanner.
This is the one: http://www.actron.com/cgi-bin/web_s...d=5325622_20653
Mind you it says this unit only covers up to 2002 so I have no idea if there are any codes not covered. The software ID=C12F.
The CP9135 reads all "Generic" OBD codes.
Note from their site: "Enhanced DTCs typically begin with 'P1', followed by a 3-digit number (i.e., P1404).
The CP9135 is not designed to retrieve these 'P1' codes, but some vehicles (notably GMs and Fords) will often send both Generic and Enhanced DTCs to the tool." (so anyone know if a Subaru will throw a P1xxx code and the Actron will still display it?)

I had 2 "instances" of thrown codes:
Code 1 of 2 =Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0457
DTC Definition: EVAP Emission Control System Leak Cap Loose/Off
Code 2 of 2 = the same.

So, either I have the same issue that JimsWRXSTI from Missouri has or, if I am lucky the dealer didn't tighten the gas cap all the way when he filled my car up prior to delivery and that threw the CEL which then disabled the cruise control which I was testing at the time and now won't work until the P0457 codes are erased. (crosses fingers)

JimsWRXSTI---I live in Florida and started this post. I purchased the car from Mastro Subaru, Tampa. Keep the info. flowing as things progress, good luck.

thanks
but my hoses are fine. i'm going to get it to my dealer asap and have the code read. but i figure it is the "cat. ineficiency" code due to my new downpipe.
i need a new cel fix for the '04 car.

I need the same CEL fix. The 02-03 resistor mod did not work and I have the blinky cruise light and continuous CEL. Removing my Greddy intake and putting the stock air box back in has not seemed to work, but I need to reset the ECU again to confirm. Car seems to run fine, so I am not too worried about it.
