Are you talking about the orange flashing word "check" in the middle of the gauge cluster?

Guys, just press Check on the little Check light panel right next to your sunroof. It will go off.

ok its one thing if its "check" its another if its "check engine"

check engine is more serious, so you can do the self diagnostic test. After you see the light go on, turn off the car. Turn the key to the on position (where all the accessories are on but not the engine) and pump the Gas pedal 5 times. The "check engine" light will flash you a code number. First it will light, then flash in patterns giving you a 4 digit code. Check what the code is on the site JAy posted, and voila, theres your problem.

If anyone here thought their "check" light was their check engine light I might have to go run my car in to a wall.
