Expert:  Tom replied 5 years ago.
If its flashing its a security issue .If its not then it can be a spark or fuel issue usually a faulty fuel pump or crank sensor.These are what he needs to check next.If you need any further information you can add to the question later after clicking the green accept button for no further charge.Hoped this helped.Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
