On a coupe, isn't the light under the dash? You should have to pull the carpet away from the firewall, nearest the center console, and the ECU indicator should be there. I may be wrong, but, that's where mine is.

Sounds like you need to replace your oxygen (02) sensors. Does the check light come on when you accelerate, and then go out when you turn the ignition off and back on again?

That symptom isn't limited to O2 sensors. It could be any number of things which "reset" themselves (i.e., don't register a fault except under a particular condition of throttle/load/temp/rpm),from a fault in the throttle sensor to the EGR valve. What he needs to do is look at the correct control unit to get a code, which is under the passenger side carpet just below the dash.

Cruz'nLegend is absolutely right. But, the most common cause is bad O2 sensors.

The coupe and sedan ECUs are in different locations.
