The computer AI ask you about lights blinking, did the check engine light ever start to blink disregarding the four-wheel-drive light at this time and did you use any loss of power or performance?

Hello do you still need help?

No, check engine light does not blink
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 2 months ago.

If you are not losing performance and the check engine light has not started to flash you should be okay to drive until you can get the code numbers. If you're losing power or the check engine light starts to flash do not continue driving. If you can get to a nearby parts store like an AutoZone and O'Reillys are similar in most states except California or Virginia they do free malfunction code reads. With that code number I can give you a better idea what's going on. The other warning lights come on by default because of the malfunction code set in the engine computer. Even if you left the gas cap loose the last time you filled up it will set and evaporative emissions leak in the engine control computer and it will by default turn the other warning lights on. You could remove the negative battery cable to erase all the codes and that will turn the lights out until it reruns the test again or there is an additional fault.
