welcome...
only a set driving sequence will clear the kam code ...Our resident frog posted a description of the hoops you have to do to clear it...but it is the same code that will be set when you disconect your battaries for any reason...

Adam I'm prety sure you have to complete what is called a drive cycle to clear all codes. I searched and could not find the thread that was posted on how to do it. PSD posted it some time back. Maybe somone else can find it and post a link to it for you.

Mombenz that is it thanks. Now how do we get one of the mods or admins to sticky it or put it with the rest of the good info PSD has posted for us?

Can we not just disconnect the battery to do this? According to the Hard reset procedure thread, the only code that remains when the battery is disconnected, is the code that says the battery has been disconected recently

that is the kam code it does not specify battary disconect it just occurs from it and other reasons...only the drive cycle will erase it...but if you tell a tech you disconected your battaries recently he can not tell you it was an sct...make since..

I can reset the KAM code, P0603 I think it is easily, but I can never get rid of the P1000 which is the OBD systems readiness check. Battery disconnect triggers both.

Guys,

I would not worry yourselves too much about running cycles. Unfortunately, any good tech that has an IDS, in his possession, can go into your PCM and tell you if you had any device connected (box, programmer, etc.).

Don't worry too much about hiding it just be friendly at the dealership and find a friendly dealership. Take it from somebody who know his IDS. LOL

i try to be very up front with the dealer on my mods. they know what's been done and if they have a problem with any of it then that shows me their "attitude" towards it and I don't want them working on my vehicle anyways... :)
