Engine cut out and management light on?

Drove my 03 wrx today and just pulled out of my drive way onto the road and the engine cut out and the engine management light came on, I restarted the engine and it seems to run ok but the light stays on now, anyone got any ideas what could cause the engine to just cut out? I'm guessing sensor may be, I don't know

Hi Ed, I started the engine and pulled off right away, and it cut off just as I pulled away from mine, I always let it warm up properly before going above the 3K ish range, seems like one thing after another lately

Re: Engine cut out and management light on?

As the EM light came on why not make use of the information you do have and get the code read ?
It would add more information to the problem,
A £9 OBD lead will be enough to check/reset,
If you pop ur location in you may find a member local who has the lead and is able to assist.

Re: Engine cut out and management light on?

Did you try to clear the code It sounds like the pump cannot pull the required amount of fuel check the connectors if they lose to the pump. You all so get this kind of problem when you run low on fuel.

All so check the fuel pump controller if its tipped sideways or loss and throws you a CEL. Its normally in the rear driver side quarter panel. Itís a Fuel safety cut of

Check the fuel pump relay and connectors. And main relay above the ECU.

Let us know if you resolve the problem.

Hope that helps.

Thanks CSSWORKS will have a look and see what I can find, I have found a thing online that goes through various things to check, from the relay back to the controller and then pump, I cleared the code and drove it today and it hasn't done it again yet
