The flashing engine check light means a code is being stored in the computer. You need to have this code read and this will tell you what system is malfunctioning.

Flashing light on my dash of a engine


hi patricia
FIAT engine light flashing means the ECU needs adaptation,
you can do it yourself just follow this procedure.
( remember not to accelerate unles is stated) start the engine
let it to warm and wait for the cooling fan to come ON then OFF 3 times, like ON,OFF,ON,OFF,ON,OFF. After the fan cuts off the third time accelerate fully down let the engine rev up to 4000 only then leave the accelerator let the engine goes down back to idle, do this 3 times.the engine light should go away.
good luck

2004 Ford expedition check engine soon light is flashing and car shakes hard when stepping on the accelerator


Your car is misfiring. You should not drive the vehicle while it is misfiring. If you want to DIY it you can start with you ignition system. Make sure all spark plugs, plug wires, and ignition coils are secure and in good condition.

My check engine light comes on and flashes only when i accelerate


Chances are you have problems with the ignition system.
First thing to do is get the computer scanned for trouble codes to find out why the check engine light is coming on.

2000 accord ex w/ 4 cylinder engine. The light around the D4 (indicating gear) flashes and the car accelerates very slowly in cold weather until the engine gets warm. What is wrong? How to fix?''


The D4 indicator light flashing indicates that your car's computer believes that there is something wrong with your transmission.

This is what the manual for your 2000 Accord says:

The "D4" indicator comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch ON (II). If it flashes while driving (in any shift position), it indicates a possible problem in the transmission. Avoid rapid acceleration and have the transmission checked by an authorized Honda dealer as soon as possible.

Sometimes this will mean that you are simply low on transmission fluid, but you really should have it checked.

Hope this helps you.

Having a problem with my 93 camry v6. car shakes when it is idle, when i accelerate car makes a clunking noise and doesnt accelerate as fast as it used to. also check engine light is on. could it be dirty...


Most likely you need motor mounts for the shaking and clunking.
The check engine light being on could cause the accelerating problem. It could be something as simple as the fuel filter being old and plugged up. Have you ever changed the fuel filter? This could cause the engine to run lean making the check engine light come on. And when accelerating the engine will be "starving" for fuel causing poor acceleration.
