Restart light? don't know what you are talking about. Are you talking about a CEL (check engine light)?

It was the ATF temp light right have the codes pulled it might be nothing but many Auto trans related failures could have been fixed for nickels on the dollar if they were addressed ahead of time. It is best to have this diagnosed by a Subaru specialist be it a dealer or inderpendant make sure they work on late model Subarus

If it was the check engine light flashing it was a severe missfire possibly a coil, plug wire or plugs given the load it was under.
