--need HELP with codes on a 04'

I bought a 04' 6.0 psd about 2 months ago and it had a programmer installed.
I looked to see if it was giving any codes and it was not. I have a edge with juice platinum programmer. My truck seems to be running fine but checked the codes again to see if there where any and 5 where there. I checked a couple of weeks ago and got nothing. I have been changing from level 1 to level 4 and 5 more often when I go into the city to have more power for traffic but I do not hot rod my truck all day long. (don't know if that has anything to do with the codes ) only other mod I know of is
air intake. here is a list of what I am getting and could you tell me what they mean and what I need to do? thanks
p0284
p0460
p0611
p0649
p1378

First off thanks for the reply. Second, I read through it and it makes no since to me. This is my first diesel and I know nothing about them. If you or someone could let me know on simpler terms what I might/should do to get this checked. Also I cleared the codes and have been driving around for 2 days with my edge on stock and mileage mode and its not throwing those codes any longer. Is this normal? I would think if something is going wrong it would not matter what mode I drive in, it would throw the codes regardless. But again I don't know just wondering.

contribution codes are set when a cylinder does not contribute to engine rpm. when you have a misfire or dead/weak cylinder it will set a contribution code for that cylinder. the fuel level sender circut code is more than likely a fuel level sender going bad. the contacts get corroded from the sulfur in the fuel and will cause irratic fuel gauge operation and possible drivability issues if the gauge drops to empty. the p0611 and p1378 are ficm related codes and should be addressed soon or it may leave you stranded, either repair or replace your ficm.

Looks to me like you've MIGHT have a FICM going for a poop.

I would look closely at the pinpoint test for the P1378 first, as it can cause the P0611 and the P0284 to set.

Check all the FICM power pids, see what they are reading. The 1378 sets when the FICM doesn't get voltage from the battery to build the 48V required to drive the fuel injectors which is the P0611 code. So now you will get misfires, hard/no starts, etc.

It's a big circle, viscious cycle type of thing.

Check your battery voltage and alternator output those can contribute to the 1378.
