NEED HELP WITH CODES! 2000 7.3L

I have a 2000 250 6 speed manual 7.3L. I borrowed my buddies diablo predator programmer and installed it in my truck. Drove it down the road a couple miles then returned it to stock - just wanted to feel the power difference. After i took it out the "Water in Fuel" light came on my dash. So i plugged the programmer back into the port to read the codes and this is what it told me.
P0750 - Shift Solenoid A
P0755 Shift Solenoid B
P0743 Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Circuit Electrical
P1754 Coast Clutch Solenoid Circuit
P0603 Powertrain Control Module Keep Alive Memory (KAM) Error
P0478 Exhaust Pressure Control Valve High Input
P0470 Exhaust Pressure Sensor
P1747 Pressure Control Solenoid A Short Circuit

If anyone could tell me what any of these mean and how to fix them/where to get parts....that would be awesome. The truck drives fine as is right now but the codes kinda scare me so if someone could get back to me ASAP i would greatly appreciate it!! Also which codes can i ignore for now if possible - which ones are the MOST important??!!

It sounds like you didnt load the programmer for a Manual tranny..You dont have any shift solenoids on a Manual transmission or a torque converter.
Plug the programmer back into the truck.dont load the tune,just clear the codes and you should be fine.The codes (other than the transmission ones) are normal for that tuner.

It could be a couple different things. Either like the guy above said.

Or did someone swap PCM's in your truck

How would the truck run with a different PCM? Let alone a PCM out of an automatic truck....im not saying its impossible because i dont really know how that works but it doesnt make much sense.....but it does sound like thats whats goin on because why would a manual truck throw codes for shift solenoids and torque converter solenoids when it doesnt even that that stuff? I am totally confused right now!

Manual truck will run with an auto PCM. No problem. But it will throw those exact trans codes you mentioned

Ok so what is the point of putting an automatic pcm in a manual truck? And where can i get a manual pcm from? Does it have to be programmed to my truck from ford or can i just find one and throw it in there?

Have you had any codes before you installed the DiabloSport programmer?If not,clear them and see what happens.
