Wait to start light wont go off!!

Ok, so here is deal. I was driving home from Alabama back home to Wyoming. I was going along and my check engine light came on, I lost power and started blowing black smoke. I recent had the same issue, the first time I took it to a dealer ship and they replaced the fan clutch, everything worked fine after that for about a month till this point. So I figured it was the same issue.
Took it in to the nearest dealer along the way, they told me the fuel filter was dirty. Replaced it and before I got back on the interstate I fueled up. Well when I was almost full, I realized I was putting in Bio-Diesel. I have never ran bio in it before but I figured it would be fine. Right when I got on the interstate my wait to start light came on and it has not gone off yet.
Every time I start the truck it chimes 5 or 6 times. I have talked to a few diesel buddy’s of mine and they have never heard of such a thing. My question is, has anyone ever heard of this? And how do I go about getting it fixed, I don’t think a code reader will pick something like that up... Any ideas, thoughts appreciated!

Mine just did the same thing this morning..but it happened right after I changed the tire size on my Smarty SSR. I checked if there was a code and there was. It was loss of communication with the ABS module. I figured it was an old code but when I erased the code the light went off. I drove about 5 miles and it came on again. So somehow the ABS module has something to do with the wait to start light...I have no freaking idea. I would say clear your code with a regular scanner and see if it comes back. I'm going to remove the smarty and reinstall it and see what happens

Well I read the codes,
P1048 Fuel error, this one has came up like every month now
P0513 which I believe is a wrong key being used, which probably happened at the steelership
P1222, Traction control output circuit malfunction
P1223 Pedal demand sensor B circuit high input.
I am not sure why the last two were there or even what they mean but once I cleared them all they have not came back and the wait to start light is now off.. very weird but I just hope they stay off!
Thanks for your help!
