    Thumbs down engine light b/c of speeding?

    ok so i was drving excessively fast (125) and i shifted into fifth and my lights inside the cabin kind of blinked or flashed at me, and made some weird noise, sounded like it came from the inside, not from the engine, then the check engine light came on and a just let off and coasted down to 70 then started to brake. i dont hear any noises from the engine, no leaks, and couldnt see anything visibly wrong in the bay. it happened tonight, so i plan on looking in the morning. does any have an idea what could have happened?
    btw 03 wrx with 60k miles on it

    First: slow down
    Second: get CEL pulled
    Third: search the engine code on here
    Fourth: if no luck, post here and hope someone knows

    It would seem that way. Best way to know is to read the code cell is giving off.

    I've never gotten a cell for going that fast though.
