I found that my check engine light comes on when I fail to turn the gas cap two clicks. It has something to do with the air . After I paid $50 for one of those diagnostics, I always make sure when it comes on to check if my husband failed to click the gas cap, correct the problem and the check engine light goes out before I have to gas up the next time and will stay off as long as I am the sole driver.

Check the gas cable, it may be too tight. You can do that easily. I had the same problem with that "famous" engine light. Use 91 octane gasoline and take a ride on a highway 100 to 110 kmh speed (1 hour minimum). I have a 2004 Verona and it is a great car.
if the exhaust clogs it just dies. your cat ( converter) probably clogged due to a very rich condition, which was detected by the computer, hence the light. my bet is a clogged fuel injector or a sensor (either oxygen or air flow) failed. this made it run rich and the cat probably melted.
You can disconnect the negative cable of the battery for a couple of minutes (but you will lose radio settings and possibly others that the car will relearn), or you can go to an auto parts store such as Advance Auto or Pep Boys and they have a free scanner service to diagnose problems that should be able to reset the light. Mine does.
