Service/Check Engine Light

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum and have a technical question. I recently picked up a 2001 F250 7.3L and since buying it stock (other than a 6" Pro-Comp lift and 35" tires) I've installed a 4" turbo back exhaust, Edge Evolution programmer and an Airaid Quickfit Intake system. Once I installed the intake I decided to up the programming from 60HP to 80HP to gradually get used to the differences. I noticed that after installing the 80HP tune and the intake that I now get a service/check engine light that comes on only at around 3K rpm and then will eventually go off by itself. Any info/assistance/insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Bill

Thanks for the welcome and for the insight fellas. I actually spoke with Edge this morning and the tech basically said that what I was/am experiencing is fairly normal even with the Juice w/Attitude modules. It's due primarily to the factory PCM no being able to recognize the increased amount of boost the programming is pushing out. There really isn't a code that it has thrown since I scanned for it and nothing came up. He stated that if the light goes out within a few minutes it's something minor that a factory sensor reset's itself after being tripped. Have any of you guys/gals ever experienced this?

oh yeah very common when bumping boost up, a few different vendors make an inline pigtail that will attach to the MAP sensor and fool it into thinking boost is within normal range. Easy installation, about 2 mins. If indeed your SES light is from overboosting, and I would be surprised if it is not, this will cure your problem.


here are some vendor links to check I'm sure there are others as well..

you may also PM some of the vendors here, see what they can do for you.
