I'll bring lighter fluid if you bring beer....

You can turn of the CEL light by unplugging the battery cables for 30seconds - 3 minutes somewhere around there. I would swing through and have your Codes pulled By ford or a diesel shop or maybe even AutoZone, but I dont think AutoZone can read all of the codes!

The CEL light may come back on (Indicating a Problem Small or Large) so I would have it checked either way!

Pabst.

I would take you truck to one of the places that I listed in the post to have the codes read. Unless your programmer can do it...

You need to get a service manual for the truck or just hang out on this site and learn about your truck . These trucks have quirks and little problems that seem huge unless you know how to test different components and trouble shoot your way through it. I enjoy the org , reading and trying to help out , along with many others. If you have a problem, post it and then you will have many responses to help you along . patience
