Question about 1997 Hyundai Sonata
When Driving the Check engine indicator come on very briefly and goes off. Is has done this about three times or so.
That light indicates that your car's computer has an error message awaiting you. To find out what that message is you must have the computer scanned. It used to cost up to $100 to have a scan done at a dealership but now AAMCO repair shops and some auto parts chains scan for free. Get a free scan if you can and when you have it scanned ask them to reset it which will clear the memory and end the light coming on again unless there actually is a problem. Joe
please rate my answer as very helpful. thanks

Illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as
the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red - again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter
