Every vehicle has the ability to turn on flashing lights. Most commonly, police cars, ambulances and fire trucks employ flashing lights as a warning to other drivers of an emergency. A normal motorist can emgage their flashers in case they are pulled off the road in an emergency or going below the speed limit.

What do flashing dash lights mean on a Chrysler van?

It usually means that the computer has detected a fault in that subsystem. If a light is flashing you should be able to use a diagnostic code scanner to figure out what's wrong. Newer vehicles (Starting around 1999) use the OBD2 code scanners. Older vehicles use code scanners that are specific for the vehicle manufacturer. Code scanners may be purchased at most auto parts retailers and often borrowed or rented from some of the more cooperative auto parts retailers.
