the wiring all looked good. I did not know how to check the boost control module to see if it is good or if it is getting the right voltage to do what it should do... (the truck was running fine), it got a code for the def pump. a local diesel shop put a def pump in it, now it has a p003a code and low power ???? I can put a turbo in it but I don't want to and find out it needs a ecm or has a bad wire or????

Can you verify that the code number P003a is the correct number setting as my info isnt listing this code for this model here?

Let me know,thanks Pete.
