Hello;
I have seen stranger things happen, but to my knowledge there is no reset when you replace the battery. GM does put a lot of connections at the terminals and you need to ensure all the wires went back on. Also check the fuse/relay box under the hood to make sure a relay or fuse did not blow. Hope this helps.
Rate me high.
Thanks;

OBDII Codes 2006 Chevy 2500HD w/ 6.6L Duramax "Truck started losing power when warm, when cold for the first 10 miles or so the trunk runs great."


You need a dealer, there is a real problem going on here, way over the head of any home do it yourselfer. The main reason is the special tools required to interface with the control modules that are throwing these codes

Battery drawn dead over night.


There are a lot of things it could be, like you said. You could try testing them one by one with a short circuit/continuity tester like this:
http://www.amazon.com/Sperry-Instruments-CT6101-Continuity-Tester/dp/B000GL7GJG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392099595&sr=8-1&keywords=continuity+tester
Or a multimeter at the continuity setting (looks like: ))).
For the inspection, I disconnected my battery and it reset the computer. However, they told me I needed at least 50 miles of history on it before they could pass it. Just make sure you have driven it for a few days after you disconnect the battery so the computer has some emissions history and you should be fine.

Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Battery was completely dead ? after how long , over night , or just out of the blue ? These year GM vehicle's 03 to 06 have instrument cluster problems , draining the battery .

hello, it sounds like the alternator is the problem, most auto parts stores can check the alternator/charging system at no charge without removing it from the truck, I'm sure you will find that the alternator needs to be replaced.

I have the same exact truck as you do and had a similar problem awhile ago when i installed the hypertech system. I had to uninstall the hypertech and then have a buddy (cause i did not know how) drain the residual power from the brain... apparenlty the brain houses a small amount of power and remembers these codes so after you turn off your truck...poof there they are again. This worked for me, but then I had other electrical problems so I the dealership had to replace the brain.
