    it becomes a history code when the light goes out. a shop with a real scan tool can acess the history codes and can identify the system failure and the problem as well.

    Get the code read while the light is still on and post the code here. The actual code (ie.P0411, or what ever it is) is much more useful than what the guy at AutoZone tells you. People will be better able to help with the actual code.
