Best Answer

Generally that means that the engine has "thrown a code", meaning that you need to plug in a code reader to find out what the onboard computer is trying to tell you. Many of the auto parts stores have code readers that you can use at their premises but depending on the year and make of the vehicle it might be worth your time to buy a code reader to figure out what's going on. Please note that the above is not correct, if a check engine light is blinking you are experiencing an engine misfire. This is universal with all obd2 vehicles.
