Check engine light is on

I have a JDM b16a2 in my 1.6EL, i let my buddy drive the car, he sees some gino in a golf, n he decides to race the guy....afta a while, my check engine lite comes on, we check out the fluids, n i was low on oil, so i top it off....but now the check engine lite is still on, i took out the battery for a few days to see if it would go away, but afta 20min of drivin, it come bak....any1 got any suggestions? the car has been stored the whole winter, n it hasnt gotten an oil change since....could there be a chance my dumb buddy ****ed somethin up in my motor while rippin the **** out of it? Or can the ECu be reseted somehow? thx for any input

when you disconnected the battery you reset the ECU.

What code is the ECU throwing?

u gotta pay to play, do a search and u will find that u can find what code you are throwing with a simple paperclip. Nobody will help you unless you help yourself
