Likely that your EFI tuning had to be unlocked by a Smarty first if it ever visited a dealer after April/May of '09.

IMHO... Try a hard reset, load test the batteries individually, and go from there.
I bought the truck bone stock, Deleted it and tuned it in 2013. I know they re-flashed it in 2013 right before it went out of warranty. Computer hasnt been touched by a dealer since then. Batteries are brand new (1 week old) and load tested at Napa before i installed them.

Well i finally got it figured out. After 3 calls to Crutchfield Support, the technician found a TSB on the compatability of the radio i bought and the XSV Harness. It was a known problem with that radio and the module to search for a power signal, thus draining batteries. They came out with a Patch release on December 24th. So i had to download the firmware update, and update that little black XSV box via USB. Now my parasitic drain is down to .03 mA. which is within the Manufacturer Tolerance. Once i pulled the fuse for the Diesel ECU, my drain dropped to .01mA. So im happy with that. After the truck sat for 2 days, my voltages were at 12.68 at 10*F, down from 12.71 at 25*F measured on Thursday night.

Well Goldie is sitting at Fremont Dodge in Casper for about a week and a half now. Threw the apps code in midwest. reset codes drove to casper. shut truck off in walmart, re-started and dead-pedal. codes would not clear. Changed out apps sensor pedal. still no go. i disconnected battery and touched cables together for about 15 seconds, but maybe that wasnt long enough to reset the computer. I didnt have time to deal with it, so i limped it to the dealership and left the keys there. supposedly it will be looked at this week. Hoping its something stupid like not resetting the computer long enough. This whole ordeal led me to purchasing the 2012 mentioned in the thread below. Will be fixing and selling the 2008 private party if anyone is interested.

Got word back from the dealer. there were a couple broken wires leading to the apps. and they also found some weakening wires on the C130 connector.
