Drain some to get it to the proper level. You can get a suction tube,aka a long turkey baster to remove the extra fluid through the dipstick tube. They sell them at any auto parts store. Since the light is blinking, there are codes stored and can be read by a mechanic. You might have a temp sensor issue, wiring issue or internal failure at the worst. Meaning a rebuild. Good Luck.
