Exclamation Bad DTC Reading!!

I have a 97 Stroker with a Super Chip programmer in it. The other day I did a routine DTC check and I came out with a P0603 code. Looking in the chip manual it said "Internal Contol Module KAM Error" does anyone have answers to what this may mean, how serious it is, and what I may be able to do about it.

That code is triggered when you chip it or add a programmer.

No big deal that just pops up when you change your tune with your programmer

I agree
Disconnect the batteries for a little while will set a P1000 code that will erase the P0603.
Then drive the truck w/ no tuner or chip and all codes will disappear.
The P0603 will not hurt anything. If you take it to a dealer they will ask you if you had a programmer on it, if you say no they might decide to replace the PCM or they might just clear the code and send you home.
