You'll need to have the computer scanned. Advance and Autozone auto parts stores will do it for free. Post the trouble codes here and we can help. There are many things that can cause the check engine light to come on. The trouble codes will tell us what's going on. HTH. -Jim

Is there any chance at all that it just jarred a sensor loose or a contact?

Yes, that's very possible. But there are many sensors that can trigger the check engine light. With the trouble code you can go directly to the offending sensor. Instead of hunting and pecking. HTH. -Jim
