Mine is doing the same thing, changed fuel filter, new batteries, taking to the shop on Monday. We had the same truck years ago with the same sensors going out, cam sensor #1 problem in powerstrokes, hope they fix it the first time, last truck cost over 4 grand to finally get it right.

Nope... the light went off at 11 pm and when I woke up to check it at 0300 it is back on. Am wondering if one of the door sensors is malfunctioning or frozen or something. The only other time it has done it was at -25*F. Its about -10*F tonight. Interesting.
