some will even drive the car 1 day, to see what it is doing.
you can not fix this , just as 1 shot deal.
its a moving problem.
keep in mind , ABS issues can make traction controls fail.
go to alldata.com and read it.
its all there. and what to do, what to test.

Had similar problem Does the 'theft system' light come on or blink? If so, get it checked out by a good electronic troubleshooter. If it doesn't start, try locking and unlocking driver door twice, and it should reset and start.

the scan tool that you are using will not read codes from all of the modules. take the car to a gm dealer to have it checked with a tech2

no, this is a fuel quality poor or water momentany, make this test: disconnect the negative battery terminal few minutes and reconnect,run the engine, drive and check

SOURCE: Check engine light is on
no such thing as a catalytic computer... there is a catalytic converter ... part of the exhaust system so they may now be "guessing" that it's an O2 sensor. take the car to autozone... they will scan the codes for free.... post the codes here tho the lads and lasses there are pretty clever and will probably tell you what the codes mean.

SOURCE: Check Engine Light came on with code p0420. Dealer wants $3900 to fix "b2 manifold and front pipes. Does this make sense. Are their better alternatives. I left the dealership without fixing it and the
if your car no present any problem i think that mechanic is a thieft.
Sometimes the fuel have mixtures that make the check light on , to reset disconnect the negative battery few minutes, no go more to this mechanic,good luck
