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.

A flashing check engine light is an indication of a misfire. Immediate catalytic converter damage is possible.

Yes, try turning the key on, off, on, off, on and counting the blinks of the check engine light.If that does not work an OBD 1 scan tool is required.Yes, try turning the key on, off, on, off, on and counting the blinks of the check engine light.If that does not work an OBD 1 scan tool is required.

That is the check engine light. It blinks under a severe misfire.

Could be anything but Check the oil dip stick. If that's ok drive to a VW garage and their sofware will give more details.

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.

Check oil level. Check that the engine is warm enough (maybe blown thermostat). If not then you should have a check engine light. Short the service connector and count blinks and figure out what's wrong. Do necessary repairs.

Either with a scan tool, or by cycling the key on, off, on, off, on and counting the blinks of the check engine light. Two blinks, pause, one blink would be a 21.

If the check engine light is blinking with the engine running , a spark plug misfire has been detected - get it scanned for trouble codes in order to diagnose and then repair the problem as soon as possible . If you don't , and continue driving with the check engine light blinking , you risk damaging your catalytic converter

The oxygen sensor is one of many things that could turn the check engine light on.The oxygen sensor is one of many things that could turn the check engine light on.

Well With The Check Engine Light on It can Be many problems. If The Check Engine Light Blinks when you hit The gas and The car stutters makeing it feel like a tranny problem it might be a misfire. A misfire can be caused by spark plugs but most likey in the navigator it is a ingnition coil problem. 1st i would go to a repair shop and put it on the the computer to find out the trouble code for the check engine light and take it from there.

A blinking check engine light means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected . You can drive it in for repair , just avoid any rapid acceleration or deceleration because you can damage the catalytic converter

No, but something that could cause uneven idle could cause the check engine light to turn on.No, but something that could cause uneven idle could cause the check engine light to turn on.
