Engine light blinks once and stays on


Typically, a flashing light is more serious than a solid check-engine light. The flashing light is meant to alert you that you may have a misfire in your engine that will cause catalytic converter damage if you leave the problem unresolved. Replacing a catalytic converter can be costly, so have the engine checked as soon as possible by a certified mechanic.
A flashing check-engine light generally indicates that there is a failure in the emission control system. The emission control system contains an array of sensors that work to reduce the amount of pollution released into the air. An oxygen sensor reads the air and fuel mixture and lights up when it is out of range. The acceptable range is between 50 millivolts and 800 mV. If the check-engine light is flashing, you should visit your mechanic or dealer as soon as possible.

I have a 2002 Wrangler Sport. I have already replace the pcm, the cam sensor and the crank sensor. Still after prolonged driving at speeds in excess of 50 mph the engine light will start flashing and I...


Try cleaning the MAF sensor. It is delicate. It has a filament like a light bulb that detects the incoming air flow through the air intake. If the MAF gets a micro piece of dirt, pollen or any type of debris on the tiny filament, it can cause fault codes, skipping, engine shut down, poor gas mileage and etc. This can be removed and cleaned with a Mass Air Flow spray cleaner. Be sure to spray it about 10-15 times and let it dry before replacing the intake air pipe. On the other hand it could be a intermittent failure on a plug wire causing the skipping and misfire. Good Luck

The check engine light is flashing


Why Is My Check Engine Light Flashing? Location
  1. The check-engine light may be a graphic of an engine or similar icon, or it may contain the words "check engine" or "service engine." In some vehicles, a red check-engine light means the car needs absolute immediate attention while a yellow check-engine light means you need to make an appointment soon. Either way, you should know the location of the light and periodically glance at it to ensure its status. The light is used to indicate power train problems that are associated with your vehicle's emissions system. (The power train is the engine, transmission and other power parts of your vehicle.)
Flashing Light
  1. Typically, a flashing light is more serious than a solid check-engine light. The flashing light is meant to alert you that you may have a misfire in your engine that will cause catalytic converter damage if you leave the problem unresolved. Replacing a catalytic converter can be costly, so have the engine checked as soon as possible by a certified mechanic.
Cause
  1. A flashing check-engine light generally indicates that there is a failure in the emission control system. The emission control system contains an array of sensors that work to reduce the amount of pollution released into the air. An oxygen sensor reads the air and fuel mixture and lights up when it is out of range. The acceptable range is between 50 mill volts and 800 mV. If the check-engine light is flashing, you should visit your mechanic or dealer as soon as possible.
Loose Gas Cap
  1. A gas cap that isn't twisted on tight enough may cause the check engine light to illuminate, but it won't flash. Try tightening the gas cap and watch the light. In many cases, it will turn off because the problem has been corrected. If the light stays on for more than a day or two, have your mechanic run an on-board diagnostic (OBD) to see if there is a code in the system indicating a serious problem. Your mechanic can reset the light to off if the problem was a loose gas cap.
Spark Plug Wires
  1. As spark plug wires age, they can become brittle and crack, causing an electrical misfire. Your check engine light might turn on and stay lit. If this happens, go home as soon as possible, turn off your engine, and inspect the wires. If the wires are brittle and cracked, you need to replace them. If your check engine light stays on after the wires are replaced, have your mechanic run an OBD.

Po 101 and 300


To give you a little peace of mind, your engine is fine. I had the same problems with mine, and I totally forgot what they did to it and it was simple. I keep want to think it airmass sensor or throttle sensor its was one of those, they had the parts and seems like it took them 10minutes to replace and I was n and out. code 101 is airmass sensor and 300 is misfire the cause factor is from 101, you cant go faster than 40 to 50 mph even if you have the pedal to the floor..One of the mechanic state having Onstar system play a factor in it. Being electronics parts it may be still cover eventhough is 2003.
