Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
My ses light is on and when i reset it it comes on right away.
Follow this line of thought and check out the wiring at that point . It has been tampered with then most likely the wires will only be twisted together and possibly touching each other one of the causes for p0405 is wiring short to ground and the symptom is low input sensor A This points to a wire not properly connected and loose

If you are sure the fuel pump relay is working, check continuity from the pump to the relay socket. These wires love to corrode. When you turn your ignition on, the fuel pump will only run for a couple seconds before it shuts off via the automatic shutdown relay. Make sure you are checking power within this window. The PCM (powertrain control module) is what completes the ground in order for the relay to send power to the pump. If the PCM does not recieve a signal from several sensors (mainly the Crank Sensor) it will not turn on the pump. You may want to check these sensors, is the check engine light on? You can scan it to see if any sensors have thrown a code. Be sure all applicable fuses are ok, the PCM may have its own fuse, check that even if the fuel pump fuse is ok. Your Truck may also have an inertia switch for the fuel pump which shuts it off during an accident. Check that as well.

The truck has two egr vales unless it's a 4 cylinder, then it has one, if it say your slipping and it's automatic change the filter and oil in the transmission and add Lucas transmission fluid conditioner to the tyranny. If the EGR valve is still giving a code then it means something in the egr system is not working, and one item that comes to mind is the purge canister valve on the evaporative control canister. To test find the purge valve and crimp it off with a pair of vise grips to close the vent then drive it. If it runs good then you have found your problem. Also low vacuum can cause the transmission not to shift correctly as it needs a vac. input for it to shift. Check your transmission fluid if it is brown and sort of smells like onions then the fluid is burnt and will cause all types of erratic behavior. And since I took the time to write this I would like to get some feed back as I am about to stop doing this.
