yeah, I had 2 codes to fix, I fixed 1 and took it to auto zone to make sure the one was gone and they still found the 2nd code without the CEL being lit after I reset it.

So as long as the codes aren't just pending.
It will display pending codes and current fault codes. Only codes that indicate a persistant condition will cause the PCM to turn on a light to indicate need for repair.
