DTC Troubleshooting: P0406 (12)

DTC P0406:  EGR Valve Position Sensor Circuit High Voltage


NOTE: Before you troubleshoot, record all freeze data and any on-board snapshot, and review the general troubleshooting information.

1.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

2.Check the EGR VLS in the DATA LIST with the HDS.

Is 4.88 V or more indicated?


YES - Go to 3.


NO - Intermittent failure, system is OK at this time. Check for poor connections or loose terminals at the EGR valve and the ECM/PCM.n


3.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

4.Disconnect the EGR valve 6P connector.

5.Connect EGR valve 6P connector terminals No. 1 and No. 2 with a jumper wire.

 

6.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

7.Check EGR VLS in the DATA LIST with the HDS.

Is 4.88 V or more indicated?


YES - Go to 8.


NO - Go to 20.


8.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

9.Remove the jumper wire from the EGR valve 6P connector.

10.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

11.Measure voltage between EGR valve 6P connector terminals No. 2 and No. 3.

 

Is there about 5 V?


YES - Go to 16.


NO - Go to 12


12.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

13.Jump the SCS line with the HDS.

14.Disconnect ECM/PCM connector B (44P).

15.Check for continuity between EGR valve 6P connector terminal No. 2 and ECM/PCM connector terminal B33.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Go to 27.


NO - Repair open in the wire between the ECM/PCM (B33) and the EGR valve, then go to 22.


16.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

17.Jump the SCS line with the HDS.

18.Disconnect ECM/PCM connector B (44P).

19.Check for continuity between EGR valve 6P connector terminal No. 1 and ECM/PCM connector terminal B29.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Go to 27.


NO - Repair open in the wire between the ECM/PCM (B29) and the EGR valve, then go to 22.


20.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

21.Replace the EGR valve.

22.Reconnect all connectors.

23.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

24.Reset the ECM/PCM with the HDS.

25.Do the ECM/PCM idle learn procedure.

26.Check for Temporary DTCs or DTCs with the HDS.

Are any Temporary DTCs or DTCs indicated?


YES - If DTC P0406 is indicated, check for poor connections or loose terminals at the EGR valve and the ECM/PCM, then go to 1. If any other Temporary DTCs or DTCs are indicated, go to the indicated DTC's troubleshooting.


NO - Troubleshooting is complete.n


27.Update the ECM/PCM if it does not have the latest software, or substitute a known-good ECM/PCM.

28.Check for Temporary DTCs or DTCs with the HDS.

Are any Temporary DTCs or DTCs indicated?


YES - If DTC P0406 is indicated, check for poor connections or loose terminals at the EGR valve and the ECM/PCM, then go to 1. If any other Temporary DTCs or DTCs are indicated, go to the indicated DTC's troubleshooting.


NO - If the ECM/PCM was updated, troubleshooting is complete. If the ECM/PCM was substituted, replace the original ECM/PCM.n
