I somewhat agree with other solutions on this page. I agree that what you are describing is a severe misfire, however there are MANY possible causes for a severe misfire other than just the spark plugs...I recommend diagnosing the CAUSE of the misfire before spending any money "GUESSING" and replacing a bunch of parts.

Also, a code P0300 is a "RANDOM MISFIRE" code which indicates that there is definately more than one cylinder misfiring. Your computer MAY display this code, however, a SINGLE cylinder misfire can also cause a loss of power and the check engine light to flash.
You may just have something like a bad coil on one cylinder that needs to be replaced. This is why PROPER diagnosis is recommended.

Change your spark plugs. That flashing engine light is caused by severe misfiring. The code would probably be P0300 if read.

Have you had the system checked and the codes pulled? If so and nothing was found,you can bypass each alarm trigger one at a time. If you have the patience, do this yourself and park the car where it happens. If the alarm stopsgoing off wrong,you have found the trigger and/or circuit setting it off. Sometimes this is what it takes because the system is operating in it's parameters and will not set a code? Good Luck.
