I drive a 2015 wrx 6mt and my check engine light came Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink? It stays on Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your WRX yourself? What have you tried so far? I haven’t tried much so far. But the light is on and when I drive, once I get to third gear, if I let off the gas, the car lurches. Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? I think that’s about it

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer! You can ask unlimited questions to any of the 12,000 Experts! From doctors, lawyers, tech support, contractors, tutors, auto and boat mechanics, appliance technicians, veterinarians, accountants, appraisers, psychologists, engineers, heavy machinery masters, dream interpreters, and more, we've got you covered, 24/7. My name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* I will be able to assist you. I’m sorry that you’re having trouble with your vehicle. Don’t worry though, we’ll be able to figure this out. Thank you for taking the time to let us help you out with this problem and hopefully we can sort it out quickly. Please understand that I do not know your knowledge or capabilities so I may need to ask questions to find out basic information to help solve your specific problem. Sometimes it may take a moment for me to respond because I may have to look up information about your concern. I appreciate your patience and will provide responses as soon as possible. The check engine light will come on when the computer sees a problem that affects the performance of the engine or transmission. There are many problems that can fail that will trigger this. It could be a faulty sensor, wiring issue, module fault, engine malfunction, etc. To see what specifically is causing the light to come on the vehicle will need to be tested with a scan tool that connects to the vehicle. This test will provide a trouble code that describes what specific system is having the problem. If you can have the vehicle scanned and can give me the code, I will be able to tell you specifically what is wrong with it. If you do not have a scan tool then you can bring your vehicle to any auto part store and they will scan it for free and give you the trouble code. I would do this ASAP so that we can determine what the problem is and keep any other problems from happening. My goal is to give you the best service possible and to help you. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let me know. If I’m not online at the time, I will respond ASAP when I get back.

I will scan it later. What are the business hours? Like, should I wait to text you until tomorrow if I’m in another car and won’t be home until about 6 pm?
Automotive Expert
You can get it scanned and send it to me. If I'm not online then I will follow up with you tomorrow.

Okay, thank you.
Automotive Expert
You're very welcome.

It’s only throwing 1 code and it is P0606
Automotive Expert
That could be an erroneous code if the battery was disconnected. If the battery wasn't disconnected then it could be a problem with the throttle body, ECM, or the DCCD control module. (driver control center differential). I can give you some tests to do if you have a voltmeter.

Automotive Expert
Ok here it is.

Thank you. I will try these and let you know the results.

You're very welcome.

Ran some tests, everything looked fine so I cleared the code and the light is gone and my engine is behaving normally again. Thank you so much
