Engine light on again

Today took the car for a drive with a few freinds and the car made a bang from the rear. The engine light came on thinkin due to extra weight and a old diff she blew some teeth would that cause the engine light to come on and gear box to not change gears, unless i turn it on and off and it changes till it finds the teeth missing. Maybe if i blew some Teeth in the diff it would cuase this. If ne 1 has ne idea or help or even how much it may cost give a email or something.....

Check your codes from the computer (ECU)

Missing teeth from the diff is terminal as in diff no worky. Crunch crunch bank snap and then STOP.

Your issue will almost certainly be the gearbox.

I'm finding it hard to understand what you can and cannot do.

Pull the cover off your diff and have a look in there, there will be no mistaking if there is some damage in there.
If that's fine, next step, gearbox.

did you let code 12 flash more than once it will flash 3 times before moving on to flashing the next code.
