29s here, sadly if the check engine is blinking that means you have a serious driviability problem. the only time my Mazda did that is when i mistakenly over filled the engine oil one night and it was misfiring and shaking in which a few months after, the engine went. most likely its going to need a major replacement or a least a professional diagnostic. the cheapest way i can think of would be to try this, TAKE YOUR CAR TO AUTOZONE GET THE FREE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT READING (this does not and cannot take the place of a real engine diag.)THEY WILL GIVE YOU A PRINT OUT WITH SOME TROUBLE CODES,AND THEY WILL GIVE YOU A GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE SYSTEM/S THAT HAVE MALFUNCTIONED. FROM THOSE DESCRIPTIONS/CODES YOU COULD GET SOME MECHANICS OPINNIONS AND SUGGESTIONS, OR PRINT THE CODES ON HERE AND GET SOME SUGGESTIONS, AS TO THE POTENTAL PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS. other than that 90 dollar or more diag time. help this helps

That depends on when it's blinking. If it's blinking rapidly when you turn the key on, there is a problem in the anti-theft, and the truck probably won't start. If it's blinking every 3 seconds when the key is off, that is a normal condition. It's telling you that the system is armed and ready.
