When you disconnected the battery you turned off the check engine light(only). The only way, and the best way to access any and all active DTCs is with a diagnostic tool at the OBDII connector.

The most common reason for your symptoms is a bad camshaft position sensor. But that should be throwing a cam sensor code. What was going on when this problem began? Were you driving down the road or was it only after installing the new wires, plug and coil?

As Nitro suggested, it's easier to read and clear codes if you have a code reader. Nowadays, even the cheap ones allow you to clear codes to see if they come back. And many even tell you what the codes mean. At $20 a pop, I have several that I keep in my vehicles.

The ignition coils rarely go bad in these cars, so I would expect a true coil code to more likely be a bad or frayed wire, dirty coil plug, or the cam sensor plug and and coil plug getting switched after other work. They are the same plug and it's easy to get them mixed up.

If the timing belt has slipped, the engine will often turn faster because the valves are no longer in time and there's a loss of compression. You can detect this with a compression test. But the easier and more definitive way is to remove the dust cover from the cam sprockets. Then you can visually see if the belt is broke or damaged. If it looks okay, you can remove #1 spark plug and rotate the engine to get #1 piston all the way up on the compression stroke. At that position, the timing marks on the timing sprockets should align. They should look like this:
