Question about Dodge Caliber
Im not to sure if this model is fitted with accident stop. usually if you have had a bump it turns of the engine. until the code has been rest. sometime if it is this type you can take the battery off and leave it off for 12hrs and re put back on. and it resets. but not herd of them doing this. you see the bump could of lost or broken a sensor and driving with the case of it water may have got in to it and that is why it has taken this long for the problems to occur. would first start looking on the side the bump was. and check every sensor. abs is the sensors on the wheels.

SOURCE: Check Engine light flashing
Pull the code(s) at the moment the Check Engine light is flashing. Purchase an OBDII scanner (Auto Zone, Car Quest, O'Riely's, etc.) Be ready when it happens... do not shut off the engine ... plug the OBDII scanned into the DLC (Data Link Connector) and retrieve the code(s) at the moment it happens. If you still don't retrieve any codes when this happens, you have a malfunctioning ECM (Engine Control Module). Before you replace it (if this actually happens - no codes and Check Engine light is flashing), Disconnect both battery cables and touch them together for 30 seconds. Reconnect them to the battery and drive vehicle to see if it happens again (could be junk/corruption in ECM memory banks). If it happens again, the ECM is malfunctioning. REASONING: Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is ALWAYS a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). If no codes are retrieved, there's only one cause - ECM MALFUNCTION!

Sounds like there is a blown piston, to be sure have a compression test done on that #2 cylinder, if the reading is low, then you'll know.
A friend of mine had a 95 that did simular things only a little more,
it started smoking, dash lights flickered, etc. Finally, he had to get rid of it, the piston rod went through the engine block.
