Hi I'm Kevin this very much depends on the codes and what they relate to its very unlikely you would have 5 items fail at the same time more likely 1 item starting to fail and causing unbalance on car then making ecu this there are multiple problems if thee are no longer faults present I would run car for a few hundred miles and see if codes return before pursuing them any further it may have been bad data
