So yesterday, I was driving very "spirited" I guess you could say.
I was running it pretty hard. I was in 3rd gear, and went to switch gears quickly and accidentally went into 2nd gear. The RPM's went up to about 7,500 before I immediately pushed the clutch back in. The check engine light came on and the cruise control light was flashing. I pulled over, turned the car off, turned it back on and it was still there. It drove fine so I kept going to my destination. However, the cruise control was not working. Anyway, I got to the mall, turned it off, and about an hour later I came back. I turned it on, and the CEL was gone and the cruise control light stopped flashing and worked fine.
Did the computer just reset itself or something? What happened? Do I have anything to worry about? It is still driving fine with no unusual behavior.
(yes, I'm an idiot. Gotta be more careful. )
