Just bought my (first) Porsche

Hi everyone : )
I bought my 97 Boxster about a month ago. After about 300 miles and a couple weeks, the check engine light came on. The battery was weak, and when I replaced the battery, the light went off. It will stay off for a couple hours to a couple days, then come on. Whenever it comes on, I just disconnect the battery again, for an hour to overnight. The light seems to come on randomly, regardless of how the car is driven, or for how long. I changed the oil and added a little Porsche coolant, but light still comes on. I have very limited funds and plan on doing most of the repairs myself to save money. Anyone have any ideas on what I should do, besides going to dealer? I took it to Advance Auto and they couldn't really pinpoint the problem. Thanks for any help
