Unfortunately, CC ID 29 is a generic "Hey, there's a problem", so there's a limit to what kind of advice you can get from a distance.

I can't speak with certainty about a 2006, but if it were a 2009, a yellow MIL would indicate you are in "limp" mode, with engine output restricted. I would think a diagnostic visit to the dealer would be warranted if you don't have the means to pull the detailed codes yourself.

Yellow lets you drive to the dealer or indy and get it checked. If it were red, you would want to stop driving the car.
