Default Re: Solid state check engine light question

My one time LHM and engine light was a cold (-20) day when I left the engine running while I fuelled up. After reading the manual and the sequence to clear it all was good. Didn't leave any codes to find.

So, the dealer said the check engine light was due a sticking of the throttle body. They said it's not uncommon for the throttle body to get ice and freeze up if one idles for a long period in certain temps. We don't idle, however on the day in question the traffic was at a crawl. So, essentially maybe it was prolonged idling. Might also the brief loss of power until she got on it, maybe breaking the ice build up? Not sure about all this, but that's what they said.
