Daughter just picked up a 2011 outback from the dealership. She was driving and at a stop light. When she took her foot off the brake to apply to the Gas, the car rolled backwards no matter how much she presses on the gas. Then, every single light on the dashboard came on. She shut the car off and then turned it back on, drive engaged at this point and she was able to get the car home, but now the brake light is flashing, the check engine light is on and the traction control light is on.

Toxman here, I have a 2011 Outback 3.6 with 220K miles. This has happened several times to me. The first time I didn't know what to do. I thought it might be the transmission. After a trip to a mechanic and then to the Subaru dealership and a couple of hundred dollars and no fix, I disconnected the battery and reconnected. When I cranked it back up all lights were off. This happens every so often and I repeat the procedure. This is my only car and I drive it to work every day. I just recently took a 500-mile round trip with no problems. Don't know if that helps you.
