The check engine light went on, took it to the shop, they said it had all these problems like catalytic code, transmission code, and said it was not worth fixing since it wouldn't pass inspection this way. They reset it, and I've driven it around the light has not come on again (yet).
Are the codes thrown, because the engine light is on so Can these 'codes' come up even if the engine light is not on?
Is it possible for the engine light to come on accidentally or due to some out unexplained reason and there really is no problem?
There is no problem with the car that I as the driver can see/feel. It runs well, the oil, etc. Are changed every 3000 miles, front end lube, etc.
