    1. If the resistance is greater than 3Ω, repair the short circuit to ground between pin 32 of the MCM 120–pin connector, the Constant Throttle Valve solenoid and the EGR Valve. Refer to "80.2.1.1 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If the resistance is less than 3Ω, replace the EGR Valve. Refer to "80.2.1.1 Verify Repairs" .
Section 80.2.1.1
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.
