engine light came on when engine died and the only code I'm getting with my tester is P2104.

Hello, Please give a moment to look up your code? does the vehicle restart and run ok?

Expert:  James replied 1 year ago.

Just making sure and the P2104 is an ETB or electronic throttle body fault forced idle. This is an electrical concern in the throttle body. The fix is to replace the electronic throttle body assembly on the vehicle and this will also give you back your power as well.
