Electrical problem
1994 Toyota Tercel 4 cyl Manual

I have a toyota tercel that is 1994. Does this need to pass emissions test in ny state? I bought it last year. After a tune up, the check engine light came on within a day of the tune up. After a few months and an oil change, the light went off. It was off for the last 9 months until a few days ago. I left the lights on and AAA gave me a jump. The gut asked if I had any dash lights on because there was a slight drain showing when he tested the battery and alternator. There were no lights on. Anyway, the car started fine, but within an hour, the check engine light came on( 3 days before my inspection is due!) Is it just a coincidence that the light came on after some minor work was done or the car jumped? It seems strange. Do you think it's electrical?
