If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.
A solid light can mean anything. loose gas cap (which you ruled out) to a problem with the transmission
This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain off. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.
In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially go on

I have the same problem and took to ULTRA TUNE and after general service they said cant figure out the issue and asked me (on car pick up) how many times i had that light ON (answer is three times ON and OFF just in morning and after engine warm up then its goes OFF after restart) . Then day one from service i have the same problem and took it again to ULTRA TUNE (good news is i dont have to pay again to look into issues within 6 months of service) and after scanning the board they said cant figure out the issues and probably it might be either spark plug issues or sometime unleaded petrol may cause this and advised to change the fuel to premium petrol for week and then check. As expected no luck with premium petrol and third time they cleaned the throttle (full clean up) and advised the spark plug is okay and no need to change and as well as everything looks okay and advised to give a try. I went straight to GYM and back to car and started engine and got the lights TURNED on :( Its really furstating me now . CAN ANYONE PLEASE ADVISE how to handle this now?? IS HONDA service center is only place they can tell whats the issue is???????

code p0300 refers to--random/multiple cylinder/s misfire detected...Causes---spark plugs---HT leads---injectors---ignition coils ---low compression ---wiring
code p0302 refers to cylinder 2 misfire detected Causes ---engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition/fuel system ---ECT/MAF sensors ECM
code po303 refers to cylinder 3 misfire detected Causes Engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition/ fuel system ---injector---ECT/MAF sensor ECM The common fault to all is the fuel/system ignition
I would have the injectors checked and have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check pump and fuel regulator valve.
