You need to have someone monitor your truck. Check ICP levels, check to make sure your truck isn't reading too high of boost, lots of things can trigger an ses light. Need to scan to verify it's an actual overboost code

well i am having a guy do a scan this weekend with his AE, so we'll get some info out of it. But i know that whenever i go over 23 lbs of boost, the light comes on. And that would happen even before i added my 66mm charger and my stage 2's. and it still defuels some. so i need to fix it soon before i hook to another sled to keep my fuel supplied to where it should be

What your describing sounds exactly like a overboost. You either need a tune that works around the 24psi limit or an annihilator. I run one and it cures the issues you are describing.

probably get the annihilator from beans or dp tuner or strictly diesel. haven't made up my mind.
but i know there is an issue becuse even though i can see 35 psi on my gauges, it still defuels noticably

Zach, a few years ago i had a buddy that was struggling with over boost, and we hadn't really heard of the anihalators at the time. He went down to lows and found a hand valve off of a compressor and put it between the sensor and his line for his boost gauge.... he actually hooked it tyo his compressor and fooled with a guage so the truck only read like 22lbs and it never defueled.... May save ya a couple bucks....
