  5. Turn the ignition OFF.
  6. Disconnect 120–pin MCM connector.
  7. Measure the resistance between pin 1 of the EGR valve connector and ground.
    1. If the resistance is less than 5 Ω, repair the short circuit between pin 1 of the EGR valve connector and ground. Refer to "98.2.2.1 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If the resistance is greater than 5 Ω, replace the EGR valve. Refer to "98.2.2.1 Verify Repairs" .
Section 98.2.1.1
Verify Repairs

Verify repairs as follows:‪

  1. Turn ignition OFF.
  2. Reconnect any electrical connections that were disconnected to perform the diagnosis.
  3. Clear codes with DDDL 7.0 or latest version.
  4. Start and bring engine up to operating temperature (over 140°F/60°C).
  5. Verify operation is satisfactory and no warning lamps illuminate. If warning lamps illuminate, troubleshoot the codes. If assistance is required, call the Detroit Diesel Customer Support Center at 313–592–5800.
