    I hate the hill assist and traction control.... I wouldn't worry about it personally. You can always take it to another shop.

    there is a small sensor/button on the back of the brake pedal that is probably out of adjustment, sounds like what happened to me year or so ago

    Try taking it down to advance auto, etc and reading the codes (if there are any). If there are some, right them down and post them up here, then clear them with the code reader. Drive the car and see if the lights come back or not.

    Re: PLEASE HELP! 09 WRX Traction Control and Hill Assist Lights

    I wonder if this is a problem with the '09. It took me forever to search this issue because its so specific, but it seems like a lot of '09's are having this issue. I havent taken my car to the dealer yet, but here is what we are looking at:



    I couldn't tell what was triggering it until last night i realized it occurs after random breaking. slow speeds, turning and braking, or downhill braking. While the lights are on the cruise control does not work, nor can you turn on traction control.

    Where is the button on the back of the pedal? This is an annoying issue.

    The lights on are traction control off, hill assist, and ABS. CEL is not one of the lights. The lights do not flash, they are steady till you turn the car off. The lights dont turn on every time you drive it.

    Not sure if this is related but when I replaced my steering rack bushings I had a couple of those lights come on because the steering wheel was out of alignment. After some research found there is a steering wheel angle sensor or something that was triggered because the wheel was crooked. Is your wheel straight or is it out center when your wheels are straight?

    Straight as an arrow. On other cars I've had wheel alignment issues that caused drift in one direction or another. Probably the most annoying thing to deal with in regular highway driving.

    Mines about 5-10* clockwise. I'm remounting it this weekend finally, see if it helps at least one person here.

    Re: PLEASE HELP! 09 WRX Traction Control and Hill Assist Lights

    Remounting the steering wheel? Is it actually "centered" 5-10 degrees off? As in, do you get identical distance lock to lock?

    Not sure what your asking here.

    It's off about 5 degrees clockwise from centered when cruising in a straight line.
