Anybody Driving While Trying to Diagnose CEL?

Just curious, I'm in the midst of the "CEL" fix. Waiting to take the car back into the dealership. CEL is now staying on with both keys.

No loss of power or any other malfunction.

Do I garage it?

UPDATE: I just spoke to the Service Director at the dealership. They have quite a few Boss'; TracKeyed most of them, removed restrictor plates, etc.

He said, no problem to drive,since there is no performance issue with it (car runs great), he really thinks it's a simple issue with mine. Wants me to drop it off on Monday. He has seen the new fuel filler door be the problem for sending CEL. They will check Crank Shaft Sensor, etc.

I will let you know what happens next week.

ps I told him that once we fixed the CEL, that I wanted to do some MODS like CAI/Tune, etc and what would I expect from his service dept.? He told me that would not be a problem.
