Default engine code

I was driving my 06 1500 the other day and a little motor icon lit up on the inst cluster accompanied by a tone. After a day it went out. I called the garage and they said if it went out, it was OK. It has came and went several time in the past week with no noticable problems. The last couple days it's been out but it tones randomly. No light, just the tone. Tonight I did the key dance and it toned 6 times then quit. I did it several times with the same results. Does anybody know what 6 tones means? Where I can find out?

I found the ignition key OFF to ON (not start) sequence for my 2002 1500 quadcab that displays the "Check Engine" codes. It is as follows:
Off/On then Off/On then Off/On. That's 3 times within 5 sec. It doesn't always work the first time. The code(s) will be displayed on the digital odometer.
You'll have to search for the list of codes what the code numbers mean (I found then on line).
The "Check Engine" light may shut off if the system doesn't detect an error for 3 consecutive checks. If it doesn't, the light will shut off if the battery voltage gets too low (like a weak/dead battery or removing a battery cable).

Yup, that's what I did but got no codes, just 6 tones or bongs. I've tried it several times and always get the same thing. I'm taking it monday to the lot where I bought it while it's still covered by my warenty.
