Your computer has picked up a fault, probably from an oxygen sensor or something along those lines. Most auto shops have code readers that will tell you exactly what caused the light, you can also purchase one for around $100.

2001 Kia Sephia flashing check engine light?

In my kia Sephia, the check engine light will go on, then when ignored it will eventually turn off. Then a day later it's back on. Shortly after that it starts to blink. usually the blinking means whatever the problem was is now no longer going to work. It's happened to me multiple times. It blinks and then 10 minutes later I'm on the side of the road waiting to get the piece of sh1t! towed!

Check engine light is constantly on then blinks with the turn signal on a 1998 kia sephia.?

Answer: If the CEL (check engine light) is doing this, then you have a wiring issue. So make sure it is the CEL light that is on. IF so , then you will need to take it back to where it was just recently repaired to have them look into it. This does not occur just by itself because the grounds for the CEL (being the module) and turn signal are separate.
