    i have Engine check light problems

    hey my name is brett and i bought a 2004 wrx about a month ago and all has been fine up until this past weekend. i took a 3 hour drive and about 2 hours into it my ECL came on, i stoped at a rest stop and checked my throttle and all sounded fine.. there was no odd sounds. i havent done anything to the car and it has 65,000 miles on it. all the matience has been kept up to date but i still have no idea what to do next.....some forums say i need to disconnect the battery and reset the light but i just thought i would ask you guys for some advise sence you have lived for these cars longer than me haha. any help or advise would really help
    thanks
