Engine light gone by it self?....

I️ had codes p2178-p2187...last nite.
Today I️ had to move my car in the morning, turn it on and now thereís no engine light on???????....uhhhhh?....... whatís going on?

Also looked around the engine bay and found a stringí long string.... looked at my serpentine belt and Iím missing the whole middle part of the belt?í So it looks like I️ have two belts. Weird. Changing that today before it snaps

I would refrain from driving. That serpentine belt needs to be replaced ASAP.

With regards to the belt, it could be that something had been rubbing on it causing the central damage, be that part of the car or a foreign object so check for any loose parts or some debris stuck in there, itís also very unlikely that the belt has anything to do with the codes you were getting, but you probably already know that.
