Greetings,

There is no clearing procedure without a compatible scan tool for your truck.
Without Scan Tool

PROCEDURE
A Tech II or equivalent Scan tool must be used to clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) from the PCM memory. When clearing DTCs, follow the instructions supplied by the Scan tool manufacturer.

NOTES:

  • Do not clear the DTCs unless directed to do so by the service information provided for each diagnostic procedure. All of the diagnostic data that was saved along with the DTC (freeze frame data and/or malfunction history records) which may be helpful for some diagnostic procedures will be erased from the memory when the DTCs are cleared.
  • Interrupting PCM battery voltage to clear DTCs is NOT recommended and will not clear MIL.

You can in most states go to a major auto parts store and they will read it for you, they should also clear it for you.


let me know if I can help further.

Good luck,
Bob
