Just bought my first Powerstroke, came with CEL and ABS lights lit.

Hi everyone, First time powerstroke owner here. I bought a 2007 F250 with the 6.0PS and the Check Engine Light and ABS Lights are on.

There is also some sort of performance device, but I have no idea what it is called and was hoping you guys could help me out. There is a switch on the dash (ON/OFF) that seems to be wired to a solenoid on or near the turbo. When its turned on the powerband for the truck is very different. I think it may have been made by BullyDog, but couldnt find anything like it on their website. Any ideas?

CEL Code is a "Turbo Underboost"

ABS light?

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

No module that I can see.

Speedo works fine, so it must be the front wheel sensor?

Does truck pull right or left when u hit the brakes. ABS could be speed sensor on rear axle housing also.

Is it a smoke switch? Is the wire clipped into the one of the two wires that connect to the turbo?

I just looked up what a smoke switch was and this seems to be it. Now I just need to figure out how to undo it. Could this be the P0299 Code as well?

Yes, using a "smoke switch" would throw that code. That is the Turbo underboost code..which is exactly what condition that switch gives to get the smoke..

When that goes, yes, you usually get a case of the bouncing speedometer.

You should be able to just clear that code. As long as you don't flip that switch you shouldn't get the code again. -Mike

You can remove the switch, and hook the 2 wires together and tuck em behind the dash if u don't want the switch anymore, then then ull have a hole in the dash.
