Sound,s like there may be a bad sensor,giving the ecm the false reading,or the ecm will not release the code,give me a few minute,s to do a little research on the sensor,s that would cause this,i love a challenge.

Ok,may have answer for you,It,s going to be,the camshaft sensor,or crank shaft sensor,if car is not skipping,and you have no sign of it running bad,just that engine light,check these ,i think they may help solve your mistery.

It will throw a misfire code,and fool the ecm in to thinking that,instead it will be one of them,that is bad,i say this only because you are running ok.
