Default Flashing Check Engine

I was driving my S80 today and all of a sudden the motor started to shutter as I accelerated and the check engine light started flashing?

Either the spark plugs or coils could be bad you would need to have the codes pulled.

Current is going to the dash board but I'm guessing that there is something burned out on it cause the lights are not illuminating so im going to replace the whole climate control counsel. I found out the the hiccup on the motor was the spark plugs. Thanks for all the help tech
