The flashing is a trouble code which is like morse code and will help to diagnsoe the problem.
It is a 2 digit code. Count how many times it blinks, there will be a pause and then count again.
Get back to us with the code number.

A flashing mil lamp is to warn you to not drive the car. It will flash if there is a miss fire and damage to the cat will happen. Have some one check the secondary ignition system. Don't keep driving the car like that.
