Causes The causes for a P0403 EGR code could be any of the following:

  • Bad EGR solenoid
  • Excessive resistance in control circuit (PCM controlled ground) due to an open, chafing or damage to the harness
  • Poor connection at the EGR solenoid harness (worn or loose pins)
  • Water intrusion at the EGR solenoid harness
  • Blockage in EGR control solenoid holding solenoid open or closed causing excessive resistance
  • Loss of supply voltage to EGR solenoid
  • Bad PCM
Possible Solutions With the ignition on and engine off, use a scan tool to activate the EGR solenoid. Listen or feel for a clicking, indicating that the solenoid is operating.
If the solenoid does operate, you'll have to check current draw on the ground circuit. It should be less than one amp. If it is then the problem is intermittent. If it isn't then there is excessive resistance in the circuit and perform the following
1. When it's activated see if you can blow lightly through it. IF you can\'t there may be a blockage causing excessive resistance. Replace EGR solenoid as needed. If there is no blockage, disconnect the EGR solenoid and the PCM connector containing the EGR solenoid control circuit. Using a digital Volt-Ohm meter (DVOM) check resistence between the control circuit and battery ground. It should be infinite. If it isn't, then there is a short to ground on the control circuit. Repair the short to ground and retest as needed.
2. If the solenoid doesn't click as it should, disconnect the EGR solenoid connector and connect a test light between the two wires. Using the scan tool, command the EGR solenoid on. The light should light up. If it does, replace the EGR solenoid. If it does not perform the following: a. Check for 12 Volts on the ignition supply voltage to the solenoid. If it isn't present, inspect the supply circuit for an open, or a short due to chafing or breakage and re-test. b. If it still doesn't operate: then manually ground the EGR solenoid control circuit. The light should light. If it does, repair open in EGR solenoid control circuit and re-test. If it doesn't, replace EGR solenoid.

Code p0403


EGR is the exhaust gas recirculating valve . It's part of the emission system designed to lower emission of nitrates of oxygen. The vehicles PCM is sensing a problem with the flow or lack of flow thru the EGR valve. The EGR system has several components including the egr valve, erg solenoid, possible EGR temperature sensor and/or a DPFE ( differential pressure feedback sensor) and vacuum hoses. They are located on or near the intake manifold and connects to the exhaust manifold system also.

2001 Dodge Intrepid- What does P0622= Generator F-term. Field F control, and P0403= EGR flow circuit malfuntion mean? Thank you


If you've replaced those parts according to the codes, you need to have the codes cleared from the computer, otherwise the car will think you still have the bad parts on, and stay in what they call Limp Mode! Sometimes you can take it to an Autozone, and they can clear it for you! Otherwise you need to have a shop clear those computer codes for you!

Code p0403 on a 2001 chrysler intrepid


Hi there:
P0403 - Exhaust Gas Recirculation Circuit Malfunction



The most common failure is the EGR solenoid goes bad. The code will not set and turn on the light until the car's computer has gotten around to completing the EGR self-test.

The P0403 indicates the computer is not seeing any voltage on the blue wire coming back from the egr solenoid.


With the ignition on and engine off, use a scan tool to activate the EGR solenoid. Listen or feel for a clicking, indicating that the solenoid is operating.

If the solenoid does operate, you'll have to check current draw on the ground circuit. It should be less than one amp. If it is then the problem is intermittent. If it isn't then there is excessive resistance in the circuit and perform the following

1. When it's activated see if you can blow lightly through it. IF you can\'t there may be a blockage causing excessive resistance. Replace EGR solenoid as needed. If there is no blockage, disconnect the EGR solenoid and the PCM connector containing the EGR solenoid control circuit. Using a digital Volt-Ohm meter (DVOM) check resistence between the control circuit and battery ground. It should be infinite. If it isn't, then there is a short to ground on the control circuit. Repair the short to ground and retest as needed.

2. If the solenoid doesn't click as it should, disconnect the EGR solenoid connector and connect a test light between the two wires. Using the scan tool, command the EGR solenoid on. The light should light up. If it does, replace the EGR solenoid. If it does not perform the following: a. Check for 12 Volts on the ignition supply voltage to the solenoid. If it isn't present, inspect the supply circuit for an open, or a short due to chafing or breakage and re-test. b. If it still doesn't operate: then manually ground the EGR solenoid control circuit. The light should light. If it does, repair open in EGR solenoid control circuit and re-test. If it doesn't, replace EGR solenoid.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Get code P0403 on 2001 Dodge Caravan...even after I just replaced the EGR valve twice (first replaced as thought might be faulty).....it cleared a few other codes related to EGR flow, but the P0403 ke


if you have a obd11 scanner, clear the codes and drive the vehicule for a while ,a good half an hour or so above 30 mph. this will give your onboard computer a chance to relearn system settings.if the code comes back there could be some other sensor malfunctioning or a problem with the onboard computer.ex corroded connections or broken pins.
