check engine light

Just noticed a couple of times when revving past 7000 rpm the check engine light has been flickering on and off also just checked on the fc comander and the knock reading seems alot higher than usual when this has happened. The car seems to be running fine apart from that has anyone got any ideas as to what could be the problem? any help much appreciated

Re: check engine light

get it checked out, but you don't need to rev it that high before chaging gear anyway though, will be dropping way off the powerband by then.
