Hi:
The rotten egg smell is usually associated with the cat conv. Most likely the car was running very rich as a result of the battery causing the smell. However, if you take the car to a nationally recognized auto parts store, they can scan the computer for a code. Even though the light is out, the computer should have saved the code.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Joe
