Hi,

Could be a sensor failure, the orange engine light is a CEL "Check Engine Light " basicaly it will light whenever a problem is detected. You can read the fault/error codes manually on the 99 WRX.

Hope this helps: Scoobypedia | Trusted knowledge for everything Subaru | Knowledge / Reading ECU Fault Codes
