    The engine management light is the car/spanner light. The other light that I think you've just referred to is the emmisions light.

    the only thing that light means is the emissions is out of tolerance - this could be a damaged lambda sensor, incorrect air/fuel mixture, egr valve is faulty etc, but if it is flashing you're not supposed to drive the car as it can damage the cat.

    But the OP is talking about the car/spanner light flashing, not the emmisions light.
