Cant figure out dtc

All right my dumba$$ ran outta fuel tonight on the way to the diesel station. Called roadside service, made it to the fuel station filled up then my check engine light came on. I checked the codes and came up with 6 DTC's. I was able to find 5 of them. The one that stumped me was P1249. 2 of the codes deal with the ABS but I knew about that, 1 was P0238 which is turbo boost sensor A circut low (dont know what that means) next is P0344 which is camshaft position sensor circut intermittent (I know what this means). Last is P0470 Exhaust pressure sensor malfunction (dont know what that means). Now for my question, will running out of fuel cause air in the lines and make all these codes come up or am I gonna have to pay for a bunch of sensors. Maybe Marc will chime in and let me know what all the ones I dont know mean.

running out of fuel can cause all kinds of strange codes in these man......here is the 1249

P1249 Waste gate steady state failure GND short, plugged hose/port, solenoid, actuator

if i was you i would disconnect your battery cables for a while today and get rid of those codes and then see if any come back.......Marc

Cool Codes

I agree totally with Marc. I chase my youngest around with a fuel can all the time. We use the programer to clear the codes. Most of the time the Superduty will clear itself after a few run cycles. My Excursion won't. If I get happy with the HP I can set all the bells and whistles off. They shure chug hard when there pushing out the air!

How hard was your rig to start after running her out of fuel? Hopefully I'll never have to deal with that, but I'm curious nonetheless.

I know when I test drove mine, I didn't get a mile away from the dealership when the low fuel light came on. Every dealership I have been to keeps very little fuel in their vehicles. I assume they do this to keep the fuel from going bad if they set on the lot too long. I always worry that condensation will build up and start rusting things. Glad our rigs have plastic tanks

I cranked for about 20 seconds and it started right up.But now when I get on it from a dead stop it dies for a second kinda like if turn the key off then turn it right back on.

Thats kinda what I hoped. I cleared the codes and havent had the light come on as of yet. I've had the baby with me for the past couple of days and haven't really had a chance to get on it too much. But on the way to work tommarrow I will definatly have more than enough time to stay in it.
