Disconnect it and seal it off with a piece of broom handle in the inlet side.sounds drastic i know but it works.

1405/405 error code for ford ranger 1996


P1405 is an EGR code this can be caused by a bad EGR valve and vaccum selonoid and or a bad DPFE sensor and blocked or melted hoses going to the DPFE.I usally remove the EGR Valve and using a hand held vaccum pump ck the Valve to see if it opens correctly if it is then ck the DPFE hoses if they are ok . Now if the EGR valve is bad You need to replace the DPFE and the Selonoid and the valve because the Valve not working burns them up internally. If the Valve is good first replace the selonoid ... its the cheapiest .... if that doesn't fix it replace the DPFE and the hoses going to it . If you know some one with a good Scan tool it may have a EGR self test prcedure built in like mine does and makes this easier but if not i have told you how with out a scanner

Either code 4000 or 1400 on 2002 ford ranger 4.0 ltr v6. the right code should equate to the egr valve. I have replaced the egr valve but check engine light comes on again after reset showing same code.


code p1400 is a DPF EGR sensor CIRCUIT LOW VOLTAGE detected. most likely is a problem with the wiring to the egr or dpfe sensor. the pinpoint tests for code p1400 instruct you to test all wiring before replaceing the egr or dpfe sensor

Check eng light on low egr flow replace the egr valve and senore check eng light now says evap and low egr flow?


A very common issue that can cause this code is the EGR valve but most commonly the DPFE Sensor differential pressure feedback egr. For the evap code would make sure no lines may have been disconnected while replacing the egr valve. It is possible the the evap code may be a separate issue.

Ford Ranger check engine light. I had it diagnosed as an EGR Valve, replaced it and the light cam back on after about 5 miles.


They all say the EGR valve is the problem but most of the time its the mass air fow meter is at fault.So i would recomend changing that.

98 ford ranger 4.0L runs very rough when mass air flow sensor is plugged in. runs, but still a little rough but drivable when unplugged. tried new sensor, still the same. any ideas?


did you try cleaning the idle control valve and the egr valve out with carb cleaner.try that before replacing any parts,also if there is any codes in the system those should also lead you in the right direction.

I have a "check engine" light on that would not go away in a 93 ford ranger


the ck eng light is displayed because ther is an issue with a computer controlled component such as eng sensors or egr system.it will have to be scanned to see what part is failing then repaird as needed.it will also have to have the codes that are stored cleared with a scan tool.before test drive to see if repairs are done proper.
