SES light and Reading Codes

Hi all,

So my SES light is on, but I don't seem to be able to get any codes off it with my basic model code reader. Are there Ford only codes? Do I need a specific software version in order to be able to read the codes on the 7.3L diesel? My code reader has always been able to pull codes off of multiple vehicles, including Chevy and Dodge diesels. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

After the light came on the truck is running a little funny, kinda idles spurty, a little bit of a lope, and needs more acceleration to get up hills and knocks more than normal. Trying to see what code so I don;t just go and buy a random sensor. I already tried changing the Fuel filter and adding some water remover additive with no real difference. Thinking it could be the CPS, but that must throw a code. Hoping not to have to pay the dealer a $100 just to read the code.

thanks,

Alex Binkowski

doesnt have to be can capable for a 7.3 , but cheap scanners will not pull codes , your problem if running bad when light is on, is probably under valve cover harness
