Call around your/his local autozones or the like and see if they can wipe the codes. I know most can scan them just not sure if you can wipe them. Do you know what the code is because it may be something important and you may not want to ignore it.

Is it a check engine light or a "Maint Req'd" light?

If it's the check engine light, just go to a Checker or Autozone and get a code reader. Scan and get the code and then clear it. Or just disconnect the negative terminal on your batter for 15 minutes.

Make sure the gas cap is on tight. The "Check Engine" light will come on if it is loose, then it might take a day or so for the light to go off.

I think you have to take it into the dealer, but I'm not sure if there is another way around it...others will know I'm sure.

It's a reminder to change your oil. There's a procedure to reset it. It's on page 159 of the manual. If you or your buddy don't have the manual let me know and I'll snap a picture of the page. This happened to me once and it's easy to reset.

I guess they changed it from 05 to 08. See if you have a "Gauges, Meters, and Service Reminder indicators" section.

With the key in the "Off" position, Push and Hold the ODO reset button. While holding it, tunr the key to the "On" position, without starting the truck. When the ODO displays "00000", it is reset.
