This code is usually caused by carbon buildup in the EGR valve. The carbon deposits prevent the valve from closing completely.

After removing the EGR valve, clean the pintle seat area of the valve and the corresponding passageway in the engine.

Went to have my 97 skylark smoged and was was told my check engine light was not working. Tech said it has something to do with code p1406. Any suggestions?

Code p1406 is an EGR code but that has nothing to do with the light not working. Some one has probably taken the bulb out instead of fixing the EGR valve problem. You could just have a bad EGR valve or the ports under the EGR valve could be plugged with carbon . You need to remove the EGR valve to pinpoint the exhaust gas curcuit problem.
