Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

Start by checking the engine oil level, it's likely the oil may be low if solid on and not blinking. After that if still having the problem I would need to know if you have an audible alarm and or overheat.

Thank you!
