well..i am not sure whether this is gonna solve your problem..but i had the same head ache with the check engine & check engine electronics alert on the cluster instrument..i removed the battery terminals for 10 minutes and replaced them & my problem solved successfully..but just beware that you connect them together at the same time with no short circuits which might mislead u with the same problem.

Most likely a gas cap or emissions issue, if you are sure the car is running fine. But you will have to have it scanned to know for sure.

if this vehicle is driven in the city almost exclusively, take it out on the freeway a good 30-40 miles prior to taking it back to the smog shop. that should prime all the readiness sensors. make sure your doing some speed and not just going 55 in the slow lane. get the system nice and hot.
