: Current vs History Codes

06-15-05, 07:02 PM
Hi everyone, Could someone tell me if having a code show as current then seemingly correct itself and go into history is something I need to be careful about? What brings this up is over the past few months the following has occured:

- twice after parking the car for a full day, the Service Stabilization System message showed, Has not come on on approx 3 months.
- Service security system came on once approx 2 months ago.
- and most recently I had the check engine light come on, after looking at the code ( P 041 ) it showed current for 4 days, on the 5th, the light went out.

I made an appointment at the local Cadillac dealer but when I showed up the service rep suggested I drive it and see if the engine light comes on again.

So I guess what I'm asking is info on the above and how pertinent are the codes if not current?


thanks in advance

You clear all the codes yourself and see what returns as a currrent code.
