Default check engine light

I have a 2003 pt gt manual tranny. For as long as I can remember, the engine light (the yellow engine shaped idiot light) has gone on, flashed 10 times, then gone out, every time I start the car. I have checked for codes, and there are none, the display just shows "done". The diagnostic codes do work, I have used the at different times to diagnose problems.

So my question is, is the 10 flash thing just a normal part of starting the car?

No it's not normal. I've done a pretty good search and apparently it does happen to some owners. Not a lot of answers for it. Even dealers are stumped. One answer I did find was saying that the computer is saying "it's not ready". Another person said to try and cure it, to take the negative battery cable off for about 30 minutes. Re-connect it, but don't start the car for another 30 minutes. Don't know if that will help, but it sure can't hurt. Good luck.
