    CEL after getting it back from shop

    Okay, so about a month ago i got into an accident, which wasn't bad at all, but i still had to replace the front bumper. I took it to a shop near me and got it back last week. Now i drove it about 200miles since i got it back, and now I'm throwing a CEL. When I bought the car, the kid had a ECUTEK remap done, and it wasn't throwing any CEL's. My battery was unpluged when they were replacing the bumper, but I really didn't think it would affect that. Is that the problem?

    Well get the code pulled and post it. That will help determine the problem and why it's throwing a code.

    I'm kind of wondering what the CEL code is. Can you post that?

    alright, drove it around a bit, and the CEL is gone. I actually didnt have time to get the code, so no idea what it was. Does that usually happen after restarting a battery?
