unless the battery has been disconnected, a history of previous codes is retained in memory and you will be able to tell why your service engine light was on earlier. disconnecting the battery erases all codes - you would have to wait until service engine light comes on again to read any recent codes. good luck!

Disconnect the battery. BUT you should have it checked. There's a code stored in memory that is needed to fix the cause of the check engine light being on. If you do the battery thing, don't take it to a service tech and say fix it until the light comes back on.

The check engine light only comes on if there's a problem with suction (i.e. you filled the gas tank with the car running or left the gas cap open and drove.
