Default Check Engine Light went on

My check engine light went on my 2000 Honda Accord 4 cyl EX ULEV. I then checked the Manual. It said to make sure the gas cap is tight and drive it for 3 trips. Which I did. Please note I flushed my transmission fluid and had my CPU replaced too b/c of a non starting car earlier this year. Autozone ran a check with their machine and the print out came out with one of these problems, please tell me what I should do:

(Please note because it is not an official Honda machine it could be listed under the wrong manufacturer:

Open or shut circuit condition

You forgot to list the error code number. Look towards the top of the printout, it'll say a number starting with "P", like P0123 or something like that.

P0700 was one of the error codes, the other I am not sure as I wrote them by hand since Autozone's printer wasn't printing it.

P0700 seems to be an overall tranny problem, usually accompanied by something like P17xx which is more specific. Hope someone else chimes in, I'm not much of an auto-tranny guy.

I pulled out FUSE 13 (Clock) on the passenger side fuses and put it back in. The check engine light went off, if it stays off I'll know it was built-in the computer to come on in a certain time if it doesn't I will have to go to a mechanic.

P0700 isn't set to come on at any certain time. But if it doesn't come back, then you know it was just a strange single thing and not a real problem.

Only the maintenance-required lamp is programmed to come on based on simple miles.
