Check engine light on with h&s

Started my truck and let it warm up for about 10 minutes then took off. Looked at my gauges and noticed the check engine light is on. Ran the diagnostics and it came back clean. Anyone else seeing something like this

Mine has done that in the past also, once with the TS MP8 and a few times with the Bullydog GT. It hasn't happened yet with the H+S, but as a side note I've been getting traction control warnings just driving down the road with not even the slightest wheel spin possible. It doesn't set any codes for that either, can seem to catch it occuring with the IDS plugged into the truck.

We have seen this a couple times during testing. Some codes will "delay" for sometime until the H&S Product can read it. It will usually pull the code within the next drive cycle. We are working on a new DTC routine that will be able to pull the codes the instant they are thrown. You can also unplug another sensor, such as the air intake MAF sensor, and it will push the other code through so the H&S can recognize it instantly.

Let us know the code when the unit pulls it, and we will look into it Monday. We should have a solution by Monday evening if something needs to be addressed. Thanks!

Mine did that two long before the H+S was installed. Two reflashes with IDS and still the same thing on the traction control light/warning coming on with no real pattern. Find no stored codes even with the IDS, so it's not a H+S thing.
