The system did get reset. Even if you disconnect the battery, code will come back. You will have to look in repair manual for computer reset instructions. It is probably under the passenger seat. You can go to www.autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual. Otherwise, the computer will have to be reset by obd2 diagnostic scanner. Some part stores will do this for free

Terraza P0303 Code. What's most likely cause? Injector, spark plug, wires or any of the above?


Might be dirty injector or burned valve. Check the connector on the injector. If good, run a compression test on all cylinders. If compression is significantly lower on #3, the head will have to come off. If compression is good, pull up the injector rail with injectors and wiring attached. Watch the injectors spray as someone cranks the engine.

Service engine soon light


if it is for the EGR valve again, replace the valve and the DPFE sensor. Not sure what an EGR regulator is. Could be a bad hose going to the DPFE, or a clogged tube or EGR port also.

2001 Ford Escape error code P0402


Ok here is the solution when I had the exact same problem with my 2001 Ford Escape:
Replace:

Idler air control valve
EGR vaccum sylenoid
EGR valve

I did all of this work myself (and as a girl it was not hard at all), it cost me around $170.00 for all of the parts, had it done in less than 2 hrs., erased the codes and have not had a problem since then! I hope this helps you out, cuz it sure would have helped me out when I encountered the same problem.

2002 accord code P0401 [egr insufficient flow detected]


the code you have may not be due to insufficient lift, more likely you have either high or low voltage running through egr. replace the valve and your issues should go away.
