3 trouble codes...FML

Well I bummed my friends diablo programmer and hooked it to my truck to check stuff out and found out I had 3 trouble codes....

P0266 cylinder 2 combustion/balance
P0299 turbo/super charger underboost
P0603 powertrain control module keep alive memory error

Im not sure what all of them mean but I called the ford stealership and he said you cant tell just from the codes you have to diagnose it. So why would they bother putting trouble codes on it if they don't tell you anything? Any info will help thanks.

P0299 EP Turbo/Supercharger Underboost EP actual is less than commanded
P0603 PCED Powertrain control module keep alive memory (KAM) error Faulty connection, faulty PCM
This may help on the 299
On the 603 did you have the batteries remove for some time to have them checked or
Look at page 66 here

A code doesn't tell you to repl a part. It just gives you a direction to go in. There are several things that could cause those codes. How's the truck run? Does it miss, run rough, lack power, blow any smoke? What color smoke. When does it act up?

It surges i guess when its cold and then after it warms up a bit it runs pretty good but it does feel like it misses when i stop at a red light. And the truck has felt very sluggish latley.

That's not that bad.
Cylinder 2 might be an injector or wiring harness.
Turbo code could be stuck VGT, or bad EBP sensor.
Last is cause you probably DC the batts and the PCM lost power.

ok talked to the dealership they said they have a 75.00 diagnostic fee then its like 75 an hour plus whatever they decide to jack the price of parts up too. So i called another diesel shop up around here he said they charge 65 an hour and i said if worse comes to worse and you have to change the injector how much are we looking at and he said 550 and a little more if its on the passenger side (which i already told him 3 times its number 2 and its on the drivers side). Just wondering if that seems like a fair number or not i felt like it was a random high number he just threw out there.

yea both were out at the same time, and i just dropped the truck off at the shop and they are going to test my ficm and figure out if my injector is out or if its the injector harness or w/e it is. He said if the ficm is bad then he will give it to me to send it off and get repaired while they work on the truck.
