Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

Where is the EGR valve in my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7?

The engine light comes on and PCM code reader reads P405 and P406. Closest Dodge Dealer in my neck of the woods is 85+ miles away. Am thinking of tackling it myself.

2003 ford expedition check engine light is on. It is reading a p405 code which is the egr sensor. I have change the sensor and the pig or electrical code twice . I brought the sensor from ford.


This DTC says nothing about changing the sensor or the connector or pig tail ! It's a circuit voltage low code
P0405 - DPF EGR Sensor Circuit Low Voltage Detected See DTC P1400 Problem with wiring or PCM !
P1400 - DPF EGR Sensor Circuit Low Voltage Detected The EGR monitor checks the DPF EGR sensor signal to the PCM for low voltage. The test fails when the average voltage to the PCM drops to a voltage less than the minimum calibrated value.
  • DPFEGR circuit short to GND
  • Damaged DPF EGR sensor
  • VREF short to GND
  • Damaged PCM
A DPF EGR PID reading less than 0.2 volt with the key ON and engine OFF or running, indicates a hard fault.

What is the code p406 definition


EGR position sensor high. This means when the EGR valve is turned on the PCM engine module sees the sensor as not reading. check the conector for being disconnected. check for a pushed out terminal in the connecter, or terminal in sensor. if they are ok then the sensor is bad.

My dodge ram 1500 is pulling code p406 is there a sensor to replace?


EGR position senser. It's just as likly to have a wire problem or stopped up exhaust line to the valve as it may have a bad senser. Check everything for you go buying parts because the senser is expensive and it doesn't fail often but the connections and the pipe being stopped up happen all the time.

Code p0406 dodge grand caravan 3.8 engine. Is it the EGR valve or the O2 sensor?


P406 is a EGR code, EGR will also cause a knocking/ pinging sound when there bad. Very common problem. The position sensor inside the valve goes bad. Your going to have to replace the whole EGR valve and it can put out variety of codes from P0401 to P0406. The new valve will solve the problem and easy to replace, you can pick one up at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the EGR with common tools. Good luck and hope this helps.

Where is the egr flow sensor on a 2005 dodge ram


I just took mine to the auto part store to find out. From what they told me its the little box on top of the Hemi Engine cover. They said I have to go to the dealer to get the part though.

Dodge ram 1500 studdars a little bit between 35 and 45 mph


A misfire on # 8 Cylinder which can be caused by poor fuel quality or metering, low compression, lack of spark or unmetered air entering the engine. 
There are other possible, less obvious causes as well. 
Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect Fuel Pressure
EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiriing

I would get the Dyno tuned and see what the computer is reading 35 and 45 MPH. or you could check with your local dodge dealer to see if there was a recall or update on the Computer if there was or is any issues. 
Good luck and hope this helps, Old School was so much easier.
