I had the same problem. My gas cap was checked as good as well as all of your other items, Then the man tightened the gas cap real real tight and it went off forever!!!
Try that.

Take it to another shop to see what code is stored? Most computer have a PROM chip that stores memory regardless if you disconnect the battery or not? If a code is still not present you may have a shorted wire from the computer to dash or a bad dash module? They may need to check the BCM to see if a code is stored there? This is a computer that is separate from the PCM. The BCM is also call the Body Control Module.
I agree with c & a automotive, take it to another shop and get a second opinion.

i figured out what it was it was a timing shifter sensor in the trans mission went out i got it fixed
