I'm reading your post as the cel and limp mode warning turns off and not that the machine dies. Is that right?

See if it has an active p-code. The code can be found by turning the key to lights on position. Then go to the engine hours display and hold the mode button and quickly switch high /low beam switch. See if there is a code.

This only gets stored or active codes. But the procedure should also work while the engine is running. So if it throws up the CEL when you start it, you can get it quickly get the code before the cel turns off.

If I'm indeed reading your post correctly, my hunch is that your machine is momentarily reading low oil pressure on start up. If so, whether you actually have low op is another question entirely. Mine often does that in the fall, winter and early spring.
