Anyone know for how many engine starts (or other interval) a 2016 Trax will retain a trouble code? I fixed a problem that threw the check engine light multiple times, but by the time I got back to where my OBD reader was located there were no codes to be retrieved.

Different for different codes, a lot are 1 ignition start most are 3 and some are 10 and some are time or mileage. Your code reader should be able to read history codes and pending codes if it's sophisticated enough.

Probably was a P030x, as it was the coil pack that had gone bad. Probably did half a dozen starts after the fix and before I put on the reader. No current, pending or permanent codes.
Ah well, the OBD reader is in the storage area with the spare now.
