I bought one.

I traded my OBS 97 in for a 06 with 56k on the ticker. It has a K&N air filter on it which I'm not sure I like. I needed to upgrade and my obs was just wearing out (accept for the engine of course). So having a 7.3, what should I expect from the 6.0? I know the EGR thing is an issue and injectors too but what else.

I plan on changing the oil every 5k and fuel filter 10k. Any other routine maintenance things I should plan on?

A couple things I have questions about are the key pad on the drivers door. How do I find out the code for it. Do I have to go the dealership? And the cruise control does not work and I can not find any fuse that lists it and checking them all, none are blown. Any help on both issue would be greatly appreciated.

I sure like the power that this one has vs. my 7.3 , hopefully it last as long tooo.

To find the code for the door keypad, you can look in the folder that has the owner's manual in it, if it's not there then you can find it behind the dash. Remove the ashtray, and then move the white insulation around in the area kind of behind the radio and keep moving insulation until you see either a white or black box, it will have digit five (5) number printed in large bold black print this is the factory code...

Enter the factory-set code (keypad will illuminate when first digit is pressed).

Press the 1/2 control within five seconds of step 1.

Enter your personal 5-digit code. Enter each digit within five seconds of the previous one.

Now your personal code should be set.

When unlocking your vehicle enter your newly set code, this will unlock the Driver's side door, press the (3/4) button to unlock the other doors.

To lock the doors with the keypad all you have to do is press the (7/8) and (9/0) buttons at the same time this will lock all the doors.

I hope this helps you out.

P.S.

This box can be hard to find, but be persistant, it is there...I could not find it the first time I tried, then tried again a couple of days later with a bright flashlight and was able to find it and get the factory code...Write this Factory code down that way if you ever forget your personal code you don't have to go through this again.

Congrats on the upgrade. I know there are some who just hate on the 6.0 because.................... really I have no idea when you are talking about a newer one anyway. I love mine and I have had zero problems with it. I agree the EGR system has got to go and if I run into problems I will do the ARP's, but right now i am enjoying the ride.

Here they are.





So if anyone has any ideas for the cruise, let me know. I checked all the fuses and the tail lights. I reallly don't know what else to look for.
