Disconnect the battery for approximately two minutes.
It is important to know why a Check engine light blinks. In many cars, when it blinks so many times, it is indicating a code, which is indicating the problem number for the specific car.
get it checked, because if the ligt blinks, something is wrong.
you should check your engine...like now...
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem and have codes cleared
cycle the key three times and count the blinks of the check engine light
get a haynes manual at a library
A blinking check engine light indicates an engine cylinder misfire has been detected
autozone will scan codes for free.to see what is wrong!!

A flashing check engine light is an indication of a misfire. Immediate catalytic converter damage is possible.
unhook the positive on the battery for 5 min. This should reset your check engine light if it doesnt then you still have issues.
Check fueleconomy.gov. In my 2004 Venture we get 19 city 25 highway.
my check engine light stays on and the o/d light blinks....what could this mean?
That is the check engine light. It blinks under a severe misfire.

sounds like a possible bad idle control valve. is your check engine light on? if so get it scanned for free at autozone
It means there's some fault code. Narrowing it down, you'd need to check to see what code it flashes at you. Key in the on position, diagnostic or cruise control switch on, hold your Set-Accel/Hold-Deccel switch and count the blinks on the check engine light... it should blink a three digit code at you... the number of times the check engine light blinks is the number, then a pause, then it blinks another number, then a pause, then it blinks another number.
Either with a scan tool or by turning key on,off,on,off,on and counting the blinks.
How do you reset check engine light for the 2009 Chevy trail blazer?
If your check engine light is blinking with the engine running that is indicating a misfire - get your vehicle scanned for any trouble codes to diagnose and then repair the problem
get a new one
You're going to have to take it to the shop. They have to hack in to it. Unless you're trying to steal the radio, It's nearly impossible to get the code.
No, it comes on for an issue that causes an increase in emissions. See related question below.
