I did have erratic idle after replacing injectors and did not disconnect the battery.
A couple of days ago I pulled the valve cover and checked torque on injectors.

They were all out of spec for torque. I checked lines and were fine. My idle issues went away.
I got p602 and reader said it was something with the idle. I replaced apps a month ago so i disconnected battery, did apps reset and code did not came back so I am figuring because of the erratic idle, it threw this code.

(When I replaced injectors,I tightened the hold downs to spec, then torqued lines to spec and put it all back together, guess I should have checked the hold downs again after torquing the lines in head! )

Well I was about to get ready to run my Dodge that I just bought off in the river and say to hell with it !!!! I knew it was getting way to much fuel and Ive saw this black box under the hood that looked like it was some kind of add on ... It had EDGE written on it so I looked it up ... Found out it was for more power ... Took that junk off and now my truck runs like a new one ...
