Exclamation Need HELP with some check engine codes!!!

I have a 2004 F250 4x4 6.0 and I never had any problems with it but about 7 months ago I had a failure with my FICM, inwhich I reaplced it and had it reprogrammed by a local ford dealership. So now all the sudden I keep getting my check engine light popping up and different codes when I run a check on it. I know one of them is like a reset code or something from what Ive been seeing on other threads.. Here are the codes and hopefully I can get some help to get this fixed so I wont have this damn check engine light on anymore. I also run a programmer for towing needs if that might be the problem.

V0603
V0635
P1000


Please any help will do.


Thanks in advance.

Re: Need HELP with some check engine codes!!!

Are you sure those are not "p" codes.

P0635-has something to do with power steering circuit.
The other two look like they are from disconnected batteries.
Write them down, and clear them, see which ones come back.
Btw, the generic code readers are not great at pulling the codes on these trucks. I suggest you get a good monitor on that truck.

Yes sorry about the mix up but the first code is in fact a "P" code (P0603).
But the second one is showing up on the programmer as a "V" code (V0635), Im starting to think that maybe I should just take it in to my mechanic to run a better diagnostic check on it for me. Because last night I cleared the codes off and they stayed off for about half of today, but returned up with the same codes I posted. I was also reading on some other post that they might be because I changed my tuning for towing and all, so the
P0603 will come up. I was also reading that after I clear them I should drive it at least 10 miles or something like that.

Any advice on the next move would be great.

Also the programmer I use is a PPE Diesel programmer. You think maybe ditching that brand and going else where? what type monitor would you say is best to go with?

Thanks.

Re: Need HELP with some check engine codes!!!

My first advise to all 6.0 owners is to get a monitor...Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.
And install a coolant filter. Like I said a good monitor is cheaper than a mechanic. Put your truck back to stock and see if that helps. I have no info for a "v" code in my library. Not sure that even exist. On the other code, have you noticed any problems with the power steering or brakes?

Re: Need HELP with some check engine codes!!!

I reset my truck back to stock on Tuesday this week and so far nothing really significant on the codes being gone. As for the power steering there isnt really much I can say thats wrong besides some tug and and pulling, but Im guessing that may have to do with needing an alignment. Brakes aren't giving me any problems, but I may have to change them soon.

Ppe is apparently used more in duramax's. You are the first person i've ever heard of that has one. Honestly I don't know anything about tuners, but most guys here are running sct, livewire ts 5015, etc. I am not studded so I stay away from tunes. You may look at the livewire ts 5015 to monitor and tune. There is a thread somewhere on it.

Yes on the PPE tuner I got talked into it by a couple of my friends who in fact have duramax's. And of course I went that route since I didnt know much about tuners or any of that. But after going through all the threads on the site I noticed I didnt see anything on PPE diesel tuners. So maybe I am going to sway away from this tuner and get a recommended one. I will look into the monitor/tuners you posted up because I do alot of towing here and there for off-roading pleasure.And Im gonna reset my truck again today and take it for a good drive and see what happens.
