I own a 2001 Sephia LS..."The O.D. off" flashing with "check engine light" didn't have a thing to do with an engine was simply a bad connection in one of the 3 plugs that plug into the back of the instrument cluster!! I removed the cluster, pulled the 3 plugs, cleaned them and put it all back together...No problems since. By the way...mine has 112,000 miles on it

What does the service engine light mean on a 2015 Ford Edge

Service Engine Soon

If the Service Engine Soon indicator light stays lit after you've started the engine, the On Board Diagnostics system (OBD) has detected a malfunction of the vehicle emissions control system. Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
If indicator light is blinking, an engine misfire may be occurring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Drive in a moderate fashion (avoid heavy acceleration and deceleration), and have your vehicle serviced immediately.*
The Service Engine Soon indicator light illuminates when the ignition is first turned on (prior to engine start) in order to test the bulb, as well as indicate whether the vehicle is ready for Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) testing.
Normally, the Service Engine Soon light will stay on until the engine is cranked, then turn itself off if no malfunctions are present. However, if after 15 seconds this light blinks eight times, it means that the vehicle is not ready for I/M testing.Check this link out Gary.

Engine light on

No the service engine or check engine light means there is a problem with the performance of the engine or the emissions components.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed. Most auto parts stores can do it for free in hopes of selling you some parts.
You can look the codes up online.

I'm having the same problem as this post that has no answer - "2001 Chevy Venture that was running fine yesterday. This...

It sounds like a battery issue. Check the battery connections, they may be loose at either post. Physically check to see if they are tight to the battery. Next if possible get the battery tested for state of health. If your battery is faulty or weak it will do a lot of weird symptoms, they all sound related. Also check the ground cable (the black one) to the body ground, this is usually on the right front fender (follow the smaller black wire from the battery). The other issue Venture vans are known for is the ignition switch. It could be faulty and either staying engaged with the key off, or not allow full voltage to accessories, such as wipers, door locks, theft deterrent system or computer modules (thats a whole different scenario).

Engine light keeps blinking in the dashboard

flashing MIL (malfunction indicator light) means that there is a serious concern that is increasing emission output greater than 1.5 the legal limit

furthermore it means that you have a concern that may be detamental to your engine

take your vehicle to a parts store ASAP and have them pull codes and then update your post
