I am trying to stay away from computers but flashing lights are quite often fault codes, an example is AU Falcon, the economy light flashing is the transmission over heating, only a workshop tech can guide you but what you can look at is the throttle solenoid, when you activate power steering or air conditioner, the computer tells the engine that it needs to accelerate. the worst example of this was in an old commodore, when you put your foot on the brake the computer decided that it needed to accelerate. after many heart breaking replacements, the problem was the senser in the power steering, first senser in line causing all units in line reading wrong. Never had an other problen for years untill I lost track of the car. check all you sensers and earth connections

Check the oil pressure switch.a leaking or bad switch can cause the oil light to flicker.switch is usually located by the oil filter.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear

Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

Noise from engine, oil indication on , before one year change balance shaft and bearings on mitsubishi outlander year 2004,4x4,suspect the same problem now?

do not run engine with red oil light on, it can cause severe damage. Check oil level first. If ok, then check oil pressure with a gauge. If oil is not low, you may have a clogged filter or a borlen oil pump inside the engine.
