Flashing check engine light i would stop driving immediately but not certain to your particular make an model but every time i have come across a flashing check engine light it has been a random multiple misfire which could be a number of causes first verify that this is the issue then if it is the trouble shooting part (vacuum leak usually at intake to head,plugs,coil packs) so this (if it is the problem) can be an electrical and/or a mechanical problem.... good luck keep us posted

Check the codes by going to a local parts store like orielly autozone or advanced they all do diagnostic checks for free. its something you should have done months ago when the light first came on. however with it flashing it means its a emission problem with your described problem it tells me its a bad catalytic converter remember to also replace your O2 sensor with it

SOURCE: Engine light is blinking and it runs very rough/low power in gear.

Check the coil pack. Same symptoms on mine. It went at 74,000.
You can get the resistance specs from a shop manual. I have been told the plastic engine cover traps heat and makes short life of the coil pack. I removed the top engin cover, cosmetic only after replacing mine. You will probably need spark plugs also they are probably fowled by now. If you have not changed spark plug wires in awhile in would not hurt.

SOURCE: check engine light blinking 10 times

The pcm (powertrain control module ) is telling you it has a set code in the memory. Take the car to a parts place like (auto zone ) and have them to run a scam on the pcm for a trouble code. Once you have done that then you will be able to correct the problem. Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: 2004 F150 SuperCrew, check engine light flashes,

Flashing CEL is an indication of a misfire. You would need a code scanner to find out which cylinder it is.
The code should be a P030n where n= 1 to 8 ( the cylinder number ). Could be a P0300, which is a misfire indication.

2000 saturn ls1 running lights power locks and shifter stop working till i reset battery


This may be caused by the connectors in the harness, being old, having some electrical issues. Connectors go bad and this can be remedied by disconnecting them, cleaning the contacts (with a contact cleaner spray from an electronics or automotive parts store) and re-connecting them. You could start with the onboard computer plugs then, go from there.

2003 SATURN VUE SERIVE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS BLINKING ON AND OFF RAN THE OBDII READER AND CODE P0304 CYLINDER MISFIRE CAME UP I CHANGE SPARK PLUGS AND BOOTS BUT CAR STILL DRIVES ROUGH SHAKES AND WHEN PARKED...


The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Engine light is blinking and the car runs rough,not enough power.


You shouldn't have taken the car back,nor should the shop given you the vehicle,if you were willing to have it properly repaired.
The MIL Light is an indication of an issue or two and you said it runs rough and has no power. What more does a shop need. Repair it.

Is the Fuel Filter fairly new
Did they Clean the MAF Sensor,and make sure your air filter cover is on correctly,and you have no vacuum leaks.
They can look at all sensor data and resolve this ,if they wanted to.

2000 Saturn LS1 dashboard battery light


the light is across one diode in the rectifier pack in the alternator, usually there are 9 of them, one of yours has failed, probably the failed diode is leaking current and draining the battery. In this instance the battery will be good (if drained) and the other 8 diodes will show a good charge.Get the current drain checked with everything switched off

2000 Saturn LS1 dashboard battery lite


the alternator has a circuit in it that illuminates the battery light on the dash.that circuit is most likely at fault but because the battery went dead once i would think your alternator is just about at the end of it's useful life.
