Default Engine Code gone

Hello all,

I have a 2006 PT Cruiser Touring edition with 93,672 miles. I bought it secondhand back in March and I've only put about 1,500 miles on it. The car has been a bit of a nightmare thus far, with problems out the wazoo.

My check engine light came on today and I followed the sticky note about getting the code. However I was watching the wrong panel so when the code came on, I only caught a little bit of it. So I tried pulling the code again and all the car does now is show dashes followed by "done." But the check engine light hasn't gone away.

The check engine light came on at the beginning of the summer and I stupidly took it straight to the dealership (they've seen a lot of me - as I said, problems out the wazoo) and they charged me for a new battery. With the heatwave right now, I'm beginning to think the car has some sort of trouble with the temperature, but that's just conjecture at this point.

Is the engine code gone forever? Is the problem gone and the light will go away eventually? Or is there something I can do to get it to come up again?

if you disconnect your battery for about 5 to 10 minutes the code might rear it's ugly head again. worth a shot.
