Default mds problem

Hey guys im new here and looking for some help. My check engine light came on yesterday and I read the dtc on my chip and it read cylinder deactivation system. I know this has something to do with my trucks mds but I didn't notice any awful mpg after that or any noticeable difference in power. should I be worried and take it to a dealer or just erase the dtc? lol

Hi there,
You drive an 06 right ? You dont have the MDS on an 06 right ?
Anyways if the truck drives perfectly fine, engine light not flashing at you, I would just erase the code and see if it comes back, sometimes interferences with your cell phones or high voltage hydro lines nearby can trigger codes.
Erase and see if the code comes back, pay attention to when (cold or warm engine) and how it triggers as well (under acceleration or start up etc...) this will help whoever diagnose it if no freeze frame is available !
