Service engine light comes on with obd code of p1404, p0405. What do i check ?

Code 1404 for Saturn cars means the computer thinks the EGR is not closing. But it can also mean the computer needs to be re-programmed. There are service bulletins for some models.
Code 405 is a problem with the EGR sensor which can be causing the other code.
Generally the sensor is telling the computer the valve is not closed when the computer commands it to be closed.
It may be tough to fix if the problem is not constant.

I have a 1998 gmc 4x4 that code 1404 has poped up and i would like to know what it means and what to do to fix it

EGR Valve Closed pintle Position This valve is located on the intake manifold near the carb (behind I think) It looks like a flying saucer on its side with a six sided raised portion and a vacuum line going into it. If you push on the valve diaphragm (side opposite the raised portion I mentioned earlier) it should move in and out without too much effort. Be sure the engine is cold to prevent burns. If the valve is stuck - replace it. There also may be a filter in on a bracket near the valve if your vehicle is equiped with an electronic VRV (Vaccum Regulator Valve) Hope this helps. Let me know. Thanks

My 2000 Buick Lesabre has the engine code: 1404 Auxilliary Emissions Control rang up...Please tell me what this means?

I believe that is for you EGR valve(exhaust gas resurculation valve). it may be the valve itself of one of the vacume switching valves that are acociated with it. just fixed this on my RAV4.

2006 dodge ram hemi 5.7 liter trouble codes 1404 and 405 and check engine light on

The check engine light is on to tell you that the ECU has detected a fault. The faults are stored as codes. The codes both have to do with a deficiency of exhaust gas going through the EGR valve. You will need to find out if the problem has to do with the valve, a leak, or the circuit.

Diagnostic code 1404

Trouble code P1404 means: EGR Close Position Performance
basically pull off the EGR and try to clean it up, if that doesn't work it will need to be replaced.
Hope that helps!

DTS-P 1404(EGR Valve)

unhook the battery for ten minutes and hook it back up... that will clear the code... if your stereo requires a code make sure you know it first.
