I used to own an auto electronics biz, and I fired any tech that jump started any late model car. All those durned computers are just too sensitive to extremes in voltage. Next time you discharge the battery to the point of non-starting the car, charge the battery instead of jump starting.

That said, your CE light can come on if low voltage is detected repeatedly. On my Dad's 98 C230, an aging battery set off his CE light. A recharge and a light reset, and problem solved. You'll have to have the codes read and the light reset to get 'er back to normal.
