I would call a dealer because usually when there's flashing lights involved it's a code. If it runs for a few seconds then dies it could be a plugged fuel pump or plugged line. The pump is able to pull enough fuel to let it run for a short time but then runs out. Hope it helps.

sounds like a bad pump, filter or both. Do some testing before replacing though, a bad crankshaft sensor can do pretty much the same thing! Parts are not cheap...testing is very important!!!

the crank sensor is in the lower passenger side of the block....a cam sensor can also cause this...it would be wise to have someone pull the codes from the pcm...it could save you a lot of money and headache....most parts stores do it for free
