First find out how to reset the light, many vehicle automatically have this programmed to come on at every 5,000 miles to remind you to get an oil change. If that doesn't work take it to autozone and have them put the diagnostic tester on it and give you the error code, it's free, and this may give ou an explination.

Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly


If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.
