I have a 1990 Chrysler Le Barron convertible, 3.0 liter, approximately 102000 miles. Passed emissions test 2 months ago. I have an intermittent check engine light coming on.  It goes on maybe once or twice a month while driving long distance on freeway and then when I stop the car, and turn off the engine, and restart the engine, the light goes off. Any clues.  Will a code be set for a mechanic to read with a scanner? Any way I can read the code myself or check it out myself.

You should be able to turn the ignition key on/off for 3 cycles (but don't start the engine). Aftewards, the check ignition light will flash the codes as follows:

1 on/off (count the times, 1st digit of code)
2 pause
3 on/off (count the time, 2nd digit of code)
4 pause
repeat 1-4 for additional codes
last sequence will be 5-5 (end of codes)

If you do this after the check engine light 1st comes on, you should be able to get the code (if there is one). A 5-5 by itself indicates no code.
