disconnected the positive battery terminal for about 20 minutes---light went off but came back on in about an hour. Just had the exhaust manifold and oxygen sensor replaced.

I've had the same problem for about three years. Everything's been checked. My local guy gave up. It is now at a Kia dealer being looked at, though they "fixed" it three years ago, only for it to come back. The local guy said it was coming up as condensation in the gas line. I put in high octane, additive, rerplaced the gas cap, etc., - no change.

check your air filter,if it's dirty,,,your gas cap might be leaking,,same problem with my 2000 spectra hatchback also check the gas you are using,might not be enough for your car(octane)
