03 f7 check engine light flashing

The other day I put 103 miles on my 03 f7 and right at the end of the day my check engine light came on flashing. It went right off as soon as I starting moving but when I shut the sled off and started it back up it came right back on again flashing. I loaded the sled on the trailer and brought it home, I started it back up in the driveway and it came on flashing again, I have checked the coolant level and its full , I havent really dug into it too much yet just was wondering if anyone had any ideas. thanks

if it comes on again, take note if its a steady flashing, or if there is a pause between the flash. Steady flashing is a high temperature, solid is overheat. the diagnostics part of the flashes have a pause in the sequence. 1-6 flashes, then a pause, then flashes, pause.......etc.

There should be a chart on the belt guard that tells what the codes are.

if you start it now does it flash? likely overheat. My '03 f7 over heats before anyone elses in my group. starts flashing steady. shut it off, bs on the trail and start it up again and it will still flash as soon as I touch the throttle. if i dont touch the throttle it wont flash. what were snow conditions? I need alot of loose snow otherwise I have to drop my ice scratchers down.

ONLY A FORD HAULS MY CAT DOWN THE ROAD!!

I call that the trade light. When it starts blinking at me it's telling me it's time to trade it in!
