Hi Nicolec.

If the management light is flashing then please try not to drive the car ,only to the nearest dealer or your trusted local mechanic and have then hook up a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes , from the malfunction codes you will then know what is malfunctioning and be able to rectify the problem .

Just guessing and replacing parts on assumption could get very costly and still not have the issue repaired ..

The flashing light means the system is misfiring and unburnt fuel is entering the exhaust system and will damage the catylistic system of the exhaust, which is a very expensive item.

If the oil light is still a problem then this could also be the cause of the system going into safe mode so you don't damage the engine ,which means all the more to get this checked by your mechanic.

Please get back to me for further assistance if needed with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service button this way i can get back you or suggest another expert .
Kind regards Greg
