Had same problem on wifes car we changed the accelerator pedal assembly, the sensor wears over time and it resolved the problem. The reason it flashes and loses power because the ecu gets a unusual signal from the pedal and goes into limp mode to protect the car.

Thanks Teabags,I've seen this on other sites, but no one I mention it to in any garages comes to that conclusion,I've had injectors & EGR valve mentioned to solve the problem
