Hi. Thanks for asking your question! I will try and help you out.

No it will not hurt the engine.

Code 58 is defined as data link fault. It just means there is a communication failure between the engine ECM and truck.

Code 56 is a programming fault. This is most likely logged and not active. If it was active, the engine would have extreme low power. If it is active, it still will not hurt the engine.

Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
