While on the highway yesterday, I noticed that the check engine light ( outline of an engine) on the dash came on and started flashing (blinking) for about 25 seconds then went out and didn't repeat. At the same time, a small orange/yellow "car figure" appeared on the dash as well. It went from yellow/orange to green. Can anyone tell me what the issue may be on the engine light flash? I'm going this morning to have any codes read.

Flashing engine light sounds like a misfire condition. Numerous possible causes. If it stays out I wouldn't worry about it.
Amber car figure indicates you are following someone too closely.

PS If you're a habitual tailgater you can that function off. :ROFLMAO: My wife has.

Seriously? LOL. I had no idea about why the little car figure was switching back and forth from green to amber! And, no, I'm not a tailgater. Well, at least I thought I wasn't until today.:D

I did have a code of P0300 today which states misfire condition but doesn't state where the misfire is.

You can set the warning distance trigger. Also sets the follow distance for the adaptive cruise. Button on steering wheel looks like front end of one vehicle w/ back end of another w/ crash 'star' in between. Press repeatedly to cycle from near, middle, far.
