The only thing you can do is to have the code read and find out what is going on.

I remember that a friend's wife who had a Hyundai Coupe picked up a fault code in rain and, after having it rest, the engine management light never came on again.

Modern cars are pretty sensitive and you cannot rule out a bit of dirt or water on one of the sensors. Similarly, something major could be going on.

Take the car to a reputable place and have a diagnostic done - without the code, diagnosis is very difficult.
