CRD CEL but no code?

Have a 07 CRD with 116km and this afternoon after sitting all day in a warm underground parking lot the check engine light came on at start up. Did the on-off trick to pull the codes and.it says dtm - -----. I've use the remote start every morning and I've put about 4k on it in 3 months...replaced battery when I bought it...

Any thoughts?

What sets off the CEL but doesn't throw a code?

Can you get to an autoparts store and have them run a diagnostics on it? they usually will do it for free? Or you could also buy an inexpensive code reader (which I would recommend when buying a CRD). Under 50 US or the Bluetooth readers are in the $50-200 USD. I have never seen a CEL come on without a code. But I have seen lots of codes but with no CEL light.

When I cycle the key off and on to pull the diagnostic trouble codes it does not say done in the digital display , it only shows a series of dashes...
There are no other symptoms. I will bring it in to have it diagnosed and hopefully it's covered by my warranty... Thanks for your help
