The flashing red light comes on after a minuite of removing the key from the ignition or locking the car, the light is the immobiliser light, when this light is flashing the immobiliser is active, when put the key into ignition and turn on the ignition the immobiliser will turn off if its the correct key.

What kind of vehicle is it? Check your owners manual, it should tell you in there what the warning lights mean. I have never seen a horse on my dashboard, but my truck is a '03.

How do i access the engine code that pertains to a 1987 g-20 van, I can't find a two prong connector under the passenger dash but a multi prong female plug is next to the hood release driver's side

The connector is under the dash panel in front of the driver, it is called the ALDL connector, it is not a two prong connector, it has 12 cavities, you jump the upper two on the right of the connector shell, see picture below.

With key off use a paper clip and touch together the top right 2 connectors on the diagnostic link connector. Then turn key on, it should flash once pause then flash twice, that is a 12, it will flash that 3 times that is normal, then it will flash any codes set 3 times each then return to 12 when done.
The OBD Diagnostic Link Connector is located: Front seating area, driver side, driver side of steering column, mounted behind dash upper panel to the left side of the steering column
