hi there,
im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech.
the cruise light will always flash when the check engine light comes on.
your vehicle will need to be scanned to have the trouble codes retrieved.
most auto parts stores will do this for free if you do not have a scanner.
once you have this code, i can help point you in the right direction

i wouldt be able to tell untill you retrieve the trouble codes.
I can be anything from a simple gas cap to a major engine problem.
