Wrench check engine light.. no code???

Twice in the last 3 days I have had a check engine light pop up and when we hooked it up to the OBD II (checked with two different machines) there were no codes. We couldn't get the light to shut off either because it had nothing to clear. I turned it off by disconnecting the battery and to see if it popped back up, it did. Any suggestions? It runs fine nothing unusual. It seemed to happen when the weather got warmer. At this point I'm at a loss. TIA

03 5sp 4cyl.

For clarification it's the "service engine soon" light.

That would mean it is probably a vehicle specific code that is set with a 1 in front instead of a 0..... most universal code readers cant read make-specific codes due the insane amount of them! GM has over 1600 codes that can be set, and most code readers can only read about 700 of them.....

Like I said, feel free to bring it in.....

2007 VUE Red Line
Default Re: check engine light.. no code???

sounds like the exact opposite of the problem i'm having. I keep building up codes, but no check engine light. The light works, it comes on with everything else when I start the car, and then goes out. and i'll never see it again. But every once in awhile, when I take my vue in for service, they'll come back and tell me I had codes set. Once I had 38 codes found!!!

Saturn of Dayton North replaced my BCM on that occasion (that they found 38 codes), but it still sets codes without the light coming on. Now my vue is doing l-series-ish weird things, and I suspect my bcm is fried again, and that scares me. twice?
