Wrench SES light comes on while driving

I have noticed my SES light comes on after about 10 minutes of driving. If I shut off the car and start it up the light does not come on (code 12). I will try to retrieve the code via the paperclip method when it comes on again. Anyone have an idea that would cause this?

Code 12 is not a code, its just the ready indicator. Next time the light comes on, DO NOT shut off the car until you are ready to check the code. It sounds like a very intermittant problem that is self clearing (correcting) before you can retrieve it. (The older 95' and earlier OBD1 cars do not store inactive codes)

I know 12 is not a problem code. I drove around until the light came on then went back home, I did make the mistake of turning off the engine . I learned my lesson and won't do that again.
