Because you know the garage is gonna rip you off for big bucks to fix it.

It's just a software glitch

Because I have no check engine light, because I have no car.

Well I sneakily got the e-check to pass 😉 and the issue isn't urgent (hopefully they are right Jesus)

bahhhhh, its always blinks like that...........probably a short in the wiring........
TRUE STORY........I once drove with a girlfriend to Washington DC from NYC....with the oil light blinking the whole way. I told her that means the car needs oil, and she said NAHHHHHHHH, it's always blinks like that.
I said, that's because it's telling you the car needs oil.
She insisted I was wrong, and her father checked the car out and said the oil was fine, and it was the LIGHT that was faulty.
Ohhhh, okay. Your car , babe..........if you say so.
and about 30 ,miles outside of DC her engine seized up and the car died on the highway. We had to be towed, to the garage, where the car was pronounced dead and utter garbage.
I didn't say a word............ The Amtrak ride back was quite nice........
far be it from me to correct a Know it all.

I don't. I go to an auto parts store, get a free code reading, and Google what the code means. If possible, I order parts and replace them myself. Otherwise, I take the car to my mechanic.
