How do you pull codes on 97 PSD?

I tried my Actron OBDII code reader on my 1997 Powerstroke and it keeps flashing 8888 which means it's not reading correctly for some reason. ALSO, can someone help me out with the Powerstroke Acronyms? I may have a CPS (I do know this one) going/gone bad but I also read where I should check the ICP connector and maybe check the HPOP for oil? I really need to figure what these things are...

as far as the code reader, check all your fuses to make sure you dont have any blown, from there, i cant really h elp too much since it could be the reader or a truck problem, i dont know. we could chase our tail figuring out....

ICP is the sensor that senses how much high pressure (HP) oil pressure is in the heads. it is mounted on the drivers side head, about three quarters of the way up on the valley side of the head. it is a three wire connector....

the HPOP is the high pressure oil pump. You actually dont check the pump, you are checking the resevour. Dead center in the front of the motor there is a recangular box right up topp made of aluminum. it is wide side to side, thin front to back, and about 4-5 inches tall or so.....on the drivers side of it there is a plug...make SURE to use the right alen wrench.....pull the plug. there should be oil within 1 inch of the topp at all times when checked by dipping something in there......

Do you need a special scanner to check the codes?

This explaination is going to be long but please bare with me; I'm supposed to go on a camping trip Friday and I'm starting to panic here! Hee Hee!

My problem started a few weeks ago when the truck just quit after releasing the parking brake. I didn't think much of it until it did it again the next time I drove it. Also, occasionally it would shut off just going down the road, only to pick right back up and keep going. When this happened, it would bring on the "wait to start engine" light as if I had cut off the ignition. The day before it quit for good, I tapped the parking brake pedal with my foot and it just quit. Thinking it was a loose wire somewhere, I looked all around the brake petal & under the dash and found "0" wires anywhere near the pedal except for the light indicator for the brake. Pulling it off had no effect and when I bumped the brake petal with my fist, the truck quit again! I decided to leave it alone until I got home so yesterday I started the truck and moved my trailer around to prepare for out trip this weekend. I decided it was time to figure out what was causing this problem so I got under the dash while the truck was running and moved every wire I could find to no avail; the truck kept running UNTIL I smacked the parking brake pedal again and this time, it quit for good! I tried everything possible to get it to restart including moving the pedal and applying it and releasing it. I was going to stop and get a cam sensor this afternoon and see if it starts.

One other question. I read where I should get the sereal number off my engine to make sure I get the right one. I have a 97 but there is a couple of plates on the front of the engine with barcodes and numbers on them with holes punched out; is this the engine sereal numbers?

HE 002 AA

96 97 98
A B C D E F J H J K L M
1 2 3
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

0413750

Holes punch out are... (1) 96 (2) K (3) 1 (4) 1

A friend of mine, who was a mechanic for Ford, says I should check the PCM since it's mounted just above the brake pedal; although mounted under the hood, he says that it could be a loose connection and to take it out and look it over good. My truck has a Hypermax chip in it (installed before I bought it) so it is possible it has come loose.

BlownSlillet,
I have this EXACT same problem with my '96 PSD. Parking brake pedal and cutting out while running only to come right back on.

Did you ever find out what the cause was?
