I had the same problem. My check engine light was on. Took it to the dealer and they checked the code. It was the throttle control motor failure. The good news is I got the wiring wet and that seem to be the problem. They reset the check engine light and it runs fine now. Bad news is if I had to get the motor replaced they said it would be about $1300.00 I hope things work out for you.

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. If the light is flashing there is a severe failure of the emission-control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on.

Testimonial: "Great help...local store can detect, sell ( I install myself) and store can reset...sounds good."
There could be so many things causing it. There is a sensor being tripped somewhere when you have a check engine light on. Could be simple like a loose gas cap, or could be an O2 Sensor, it could be one or more cylinders mis-firing (which is what mine was last week and changing the spark plugs did the trick for me). It could be a BUNCH of different things. I would take it to an auto parts store and ask them to run the code for you if you're "curious" but if you want it correclty diagnosed, take it to a dealer or good shop and have them run a full diagnostic on it. It's probably gonna run $75 to $100, but it's worth it. The auto chains sometimes run a code and give you a bunch of suggestions about parts to buy to fix it. They're most likely guessing and trying to get you to buy a bunch of parts. Hope this helps.
