When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

Apparently what has most likely happened is you were on a wet or ice road and may have lost traction on the road. You may have never even noticed, but your vehicle did. The vehicle compensated for the road condition & probably revved the engine a little to low, which probably turned on the check engine light. This is a scenario only.
The best way to find out what's wrong is to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. The trouble code will point to the problem. Several auto parts stores will do this for free or rent you a scanner so you can scan it yourself. If the code isn't obvious or you need more help you can come back here and I'll walk you through figuring it out.
It also could be you need to change the rear differential fluid. There was a TSB for this vehicle. I am not sure if your vehicle falls into it. You could check with the dealer as well.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day
