Help eliminate nuisance P1249 code
7.3L in 2002 Excursion. Garrett GTP38R turbo, single shot AC injectors.
Truck is running great, there is a boost relief valve installed before the MAP sensor so this is NOT and overboost code.
Every time I get on the throttle it sets a P1249 Wastegate control code and turns on the CE light. I can reset it and it stays gone until next time .....
Is there a way to be rid of the code permanently? I do not believe the ECU has control of the wastegate on the GTP38R turbo. I do not get the P0234 overboost code, and the ECU does not defuel. Runs great even when the code pops up. The light is a nuisance and would like to be rid of it.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
