If the fault isn't allowing the car to start then whatever is causing it is considered serious enough for the car not to be driven,
don't you have recovery ?

Do you have a code reader ?
if it was mine i'd really want to have a good idea of the issue before running it

Did you make a note of the codes before clearing them ?
the issue could be what Vx call a "software weakness" if it's a known issue you can usually get the software updated and often for free.
