    The best thing I did was buy a code reader. It came with a book that tells what the code means in a little more detail than what is displayed and it also allows you to clear the codes. Even if you are unsure what the code means at least then you can post it as he just suggested. Granted a lot of places now scan for free but I like keeping it in my car and for 120 bucks it has been well worth it.

    Could be that the wheel speed sensors were seeing very different wheel speeds at the same time and it set a code.

    i hate when people get check engine lights or assume that jus cause they drove hard it automatically means its related. jus have the code scanned and find out what it is and work from there. check engine lights could mean anything. did you overrev?

    dont waste your money on generic code readers, your paying for the book. you can read codes with a paper clip. now if you want a good code reader for a lil more money the the 120 one listed above look into the mac procode i paid 179.99 for mine. it tells you exactly what the code was and possible causes for the code and you can look up real time on it which tells you the engine rpms, coolant temp and speed the vehicle is going and it reads any make with no software to change. for 120 bucks and you have to check a book, thats getting ripped off.
