Check Engine light after mod

I just installed a non-EBPV pedistal and gutted the flapper valve. While I was in there, I also did the AIH delete. I now have a check engine light on. I've read just about every post on this and other sites regarding these mods but no one mentions a check engine light. Everyone says that I should just get a soft code. BTW it is a 02 7.3 X.

That's right, you should just get a soft code with no CES light.
I would start with retracing my steps. Did you hook everything back up when you were done? Have another look under the hood just to be sure. Those two mods should not make that light come on. Have the codes read, see what it is telling you and go from there if everything under the hood is alright.

Good Luck!

First step is check for connections being unhooked, then have the codes read.

If it was built as a California model and you unhook the ebpx connector it will set the check engine light, if it is not a California model then there is prollly something unhooked that shouldn't be. My ebpv connector has been unplugged for 3 years and no light yet, just a soft code.

Yes, it was built as a California model. The plug is not connected to anything at this time, I just put a plastic cap over the connector. I did see that Dfuser offered the senor eliminator. If this will eliminate the SES light I'll definately purchase one. I did also notice that they offered a sensor delete for the AIH. Is this necessary as well?

I don't know about the intake air heater, if it will set the light or not, but i know the ebpv will on a Cali. model. The plug from dfuser should fix the light for the ebpv. and if I had to guess I bet the Intake air heater will set the light to, being it has to do with reducing smoke on warm up.
