Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Im cam, a licenced auto tech.
the engine light is on because it has detected a problem and it has stored a trouble code in the pcm(engine computer).
this will have to be retrieved by hooking a scanner up and pulling the stored trouble codes.most auto parts stores will do this for free if you do not have a scanner yourself.the light is flashing as a warning that damage to the catalytic converter is happening.it sounds like you have a misfire and it will possibly need a tune up or even a coil pack is bad.i would recommend scanning it asap and pull the trouble code to see which cylinder is missfiring or if there is another issue with the engine
