What about this: I was in the middle of a 45 mile trip, wich i toke to get a god run on the engine ecause it had been parked for 4 days now after comuting for a week or so. thing is that when i was coming to a slope whit about 5% incline upwards, in 6th gear at about 80-90 mph the light came on whit the usual "check engine" message, but the car didn't even feelt it, keept going at speed uphil, no power loss, no limping, no smoke and no strange sounds. it went on normally! Useless to say i got a litlle wee-wee and as son as i got into the destination, shut the engine off and poped the hood as to check the engine bay: Absolute normal normality!!! WTF?
Rested and cooled down for an hour or so, got back in the car started it, the damn light is still there as well as the message but it ran nicelly on the way back home. Never even noticed a Regen taking place, nothing, zero!
So, my question is: What other common situations cause the light to pop?
