Seems as though I have had this problem since I bought the car in 2005. Had the throttle body cleaned almost annually whic allows the check engine light to go out for maybe a month or so if I'm lucky. Its been on more than it hasn't accept for when it finally burned out but only until it was replaced. causes all kinds of error codes. Short to grounds mostly, & prompted replacement of the catalytic converter & engine sensors.
