Default Check Engine Light

Hey everyone! I am new here but I am hoping you can help me out. Tonight after starting my car I got the check engine light and tone. I checked the code and all I got was done for a code. My car only has um 33000 I think. LOL I have never had anything like this happen before. Can anyone help me please??

Take the negative battery cable off for 10 minutes and let the computer reset.

you might want to check this out Eve say's shes sick but she wont tell me what's wrong.. same thing just happened to me. It could be low tires, it could be the gas cap. My gas cap was good and there were no cracks but my tires were low. But the light went away before i had a chance to get the tires filled. so you might want to take it to autozone so they can hook up the comp to it to see what kinda codes are showing
welcome to the site by the way. Greetings from Eve(07 Touring Ed) and I, we're from San Antonio

well when its really got a problem the light blinks and that is when its time to get it someplace to be looked at or it might start running rough when my cam sensor went i was on the highway and while i could keep driving it was at about 45mph anything faster and it would stall
