Default Engine Light ON - no error code

So the yellow engine light jumps on last week. My buddy points me to this forum, and I learn how to pull error codes. ON-AC ON-AC ON-AC...

So after doing the key thing, I get the following:

------

-done-

Hmmmm, no error codes!? But the yellow engine light is still on!?

Any thoughts?

Reset the PCM by disconnecting (you can look under the fuse box) the 20a fuse or the negative cable from your battery for 5 minutes.

Plug it back in and it should reset. Should it come on again, hopefully it'll come up with an error code letting you know what the problem is. I had that happen to me once and it didn't come back.

As Mr K said (we don't know his "real" first name, hint), if you just want to get rid of the code, simply remove the neg. battery cable and wait a few minutes and then replace the cable. If the cell comes back and you REALLY only get ---done--- when you do the key dance, then you have a "deeper" code than the key dance can reach and you will have to go to the dealer or Autozone (free) , pepboys (free), your favorite mechanic, etc. to retreive the code.
