i just bought a 1996 powerstroke, previoulsy had a 2000 7.3 and a duramax so im pretty familiar with them but today i was playing with auto enginuity and it passed the CCT but when i did the buzz test and KOEO test it came back with 2 codes. they diddnt trip the ses light though. the codes are 1219-CID stuck low, and 1298 IDM failure. i dont think i have a bad idm because the truck runs fine but im not sure about the 1219 code. is that an internal idm problem or maybe a bare wire shorting out? what is CID? thanks
thats what i thought. its a weird code. i would think an idm failure would cause all kinds of problems? im wondering if there is a wire rubbed through somewhere on the cid circuit shorting it out and because that code is thrown the computer thinks the idm is bad also. just wondering if anyone had this problem and if it was an internal idm problem or an external(wiring) issue
I'm impressed Joe, do you have a photografic memory?

thanks ill have to get out the multi meter. thats kind of what i was thinkng that it said the idm was bad because one circuit in it was bad but wouldnt a cylinder i.d cirucit shorted to ground cause problems? the truck seems to run fine
certains things i do remeber photographicly, but with each passing day there are less and less....lol. the tank parts are taking over. i do recall most of the basic circuits but i always double check my pced's before posting when it comes to wire colors and numbers
