Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
The check engine light will flash a pattern, which equates to a code. Can you check the pattern that the light is flashing and let me know what kind of pattern it has. From there I can pull a code and tell you what is wrong with it.

Hey Boris.
The check engine like will flash 2 different numbers. For example, if it flashes twice and then pauses, and then flashes 4 more times. That is a code 2-4.
Is this something you can double check and get back to me on?
