It probably means that the computer has stored a "FAULT" code. Plug in a code scanner and find out what the computer thinks is wrong.

If a check engine light is flashing that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected

You have to remove the head gasket to check in the cylinder. The click and flash should be obvious on a working spark plug

i also have Pontiac grand am, mine is a 2001. The pass lock sensor sets off the security light which cuts off gas to the engine, which is a theft deturent. My problem was fixed when i got a new stereo and the one thing that was replaced was my chime module, so we think mine was a electrical problem. But get your pass lock sensor looked at because that is what controls the security light.

A flashing engine light is usually a misfire code. Driving with a flashing light means immediate repair you are damaging your catalytic converters or engine. In answer to your question, NO.

There is no 'governor' in the normal sense. Both the engine RPM and Vehicle Speed are limited by the engine computer. There may be some 'Speed Chip' solutions to remove the speed limiter but, the 96 has a 'Flash' program, not a removable/replaceable module. You would either have to send it out for re-programming or a buy a second ECM (Engine Control Module).

My grand am flash module is located under the drivers side dash. If you have problems finding it, if the flashers work (probably not), turn them on and listen.

You have a short circuit in your wiring. You need to take your vehicle to a mechanic to have it fixed before you damage your battery.

Flash is just a name of having your files with you in a "Flash." And Drive is just a word of putting something into the computer. (Kind of like Driving it Into a Computer)

1986, a BMW turbocharged engine achieved a flash reading of 5.5 bar pressure, estimated to be over 1,300 bhp (970 kW) in qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix.

On startup it should light up. You are saying it is flashing while driving or running, so I think you can take your car to autozone and have a free engine scan to see what the problem is.

Yes, water can cause a misfire, which will cause the check engine light to flash.

check your fuses first, then check your bulbs and then your relay.

They are games made with flash software. But flash is very vulnerable to being hacked. If they are flash based you can hack them using cheat engine 5.6 If you are having trouble, contact me

An engine cylinder misfire has been detected if your check engine light is flashing ( I'm not a mechanic / technician but it could be a spark plug , spark plug wire , the fuel mixture , or some other problem )
