First thing to do is disconnect the battery for about half an hour, then reconnect it again. That should clear all the stored codes & turn off the SES light.

But I fear that you may have thrown a code 41 or the cam magnet has jumped out of the cam sproket, causing a loss of cam signal... Please let us know what you found...

Ugh...Code 41 is the WORST...biggest problem I have in my car, by far. I will keep my fingers crossed for you man. You can't afford to throw a 41 if you wanna paint Big Phat Padge eh Buzz?
