  3. Measure resistance between cavity 2 and 3. See Figure "EGR  Delta-Pressure Sensor Wiring" .
    1. If the resistance measurement is less than or equal to 5 Ω, Refer to "73.2.2 Check for Short" .
    2. If the resistance measurement is greater than 5 Ω, circuit E-15 is open. Repair and verify. Refer to "73.2.2.1 Verify Repair" .

Section 73.2.2
Check for Short

  1. Remove the jumper wire.
  2. Measure resistance between E-12 and E-38. See Figure "EGR  Delta-Pressure Sensor Wiring" .
    1. If the resistance measurement is less than 1.5 k Ω, circuit E-12 is shorted to E-38. Repair and verify. Refer to "73.2.2.1 Verify Repair" .
    2. If the resistance measurement is equal to 1.5 k Ω, replace the EGR Delta P sensor and go to "73.2.2.1 Verify Repair" .
Section 73.2.2.1
Verify Repair

Perform the following steps to verify repairs.‪

  1. Connect all connectors and start and run the engine.
  2. Road test the engine.
    1. If code 81 was not logged, no further troubleshooting is required.
    2. If code 81 was logged, review this section from the first step to find the error. Refer to "73.2.1 Check for Open" . If this is the second time through the procedure, call the Detroit Diesel Customer Support Center (313–592–5800) or try a test ECM/ECU.
