Question about 2004 Mazda 6
Car has been sitting in a towing company for 3 years and has been fixed mechanically, all fluids are good...car runs fine. But check engine and AT light are on and don't know what to do
First, double check that the gas cap is good and tight. Sounds silly, but sometimes a loose gas cap will cause the check engine light to come on. Failing that, take the car to someone who can read the codes. You might have a bad or lazy O2 sensor but the codes are the quickest way to tell.

SOURCE: Check engine light is on
If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.
A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.
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 on. 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 turn on. Until you get this code, it's impossible to determine what parts need to be checked or replaced.
Unfortunately, with some cars, there will be problems that the computer keeps picking up and throwing the light.
