    Disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, it also might have another way in your owners manual. All those trucks that have the little DIC have tricks for resetting things.

    The owner's manual reset is the best way to do it. Disconnecting the battery erases all the adaptive learning along with radio and driver presets.

    bring it to a auto parts store that does free scans and have them clean the codes

    Just not Autozone, unless you sweet talk the guy, because their policy is to not clear the codes.

    or tell the autozone guy to let you see the tuner and accidentally hit the erase button.
