Default did i damage my car?

last week(maybe longer), i went out to the garage and rolled the windows up and put the miata's top up. here's the stupid part, i forgot to turn off the ignition! yesterday i was going to go put the miata in storage for the winter, when i discovered my mistake. i charged the battery and it fired right up.

here is the problem; i now have a CEL. what are some best guesses as to what i fried/damaged.

1997 turbo still obd2

Get the codes scanned for free at autozone, advanced, oreilly, shucks. Then come back so people don't have to guess.

I don't think there's anything you could have damaged or fried... in fact, I'd say that there's no way anything is wrong. I can't guess what the code might be, but I bet no matter what it is, if you clear it, it'll never come back.

you could have MAYBE fried the heater in the O2 sensor or MAF... I think the battery would have died before toasting either one though.
