Hi:

There are hundreds of codes that trip the service engine light, but not many will make the light flash. Usually this is a cylinder misfire condition, caused by an intermittent ignition module or similar failed part. One thing you can do, is take your vehicle to an auto parts store, such as Autozone. Usually they will scan your code for free, and tell you what it is , or what caused it. They can suggest what part might be needed to fix it too...

My Pontiac Grand Am 2003 service engine soon light is flashing on and off while I was driving


It is probably going to be a misfire code, but I can't make any promisses. I would take it by Autozone or O'Reily's. They will scan it for trouble codes free of charge. The flashing light means you need to have it scanned urgently. It could be something pretty major so don't wait. Go now, your car will thank you:)

Electrical problems with 2006 Nissan maxima


I would start with checking the computer for trouble codes.
Sounds like a bad connection in the dash wiring or key switch, but the trouble code might steer you in the right direction.

you can get the trouble codes out by turning key on off on off on then watch the check engine light it will flash a number of times n pause this will give you codes to take to the auto parts store n tell them they will know most of them the service writer at the dealer can find the rest (example) blink blink blink pause blink blink =32 there could be several so do it a couple times to make sure you get them right and get them all

1997 Ford Van, V-6, 4.2 engine with 74,000 miles. For the past week, every other day, the motor will choke out and run rough and only go about 40 mph for about 10 minutes, then the van will be ok and run...


the first thing you need to do is take your van to a autoparts store, and have them read the codes in the computer. this is a free service. a flashing service engine light is a indication of a emergency situation so get there soon. once the codes have been read get back to me and i can probably help you more

Engine skipping/misfiring, engine light flashing


Drive it into a dark place, or wait till dark. When it's running poorly, see if you can see any spark flying around. It sounds like plug wires.
