P0406 - Exhaust Gas Recirculation Sensor A Circuit High
An improper voltage signal is sent to ECM through the valve

Early Models : The EGR valve control the amount of exhaust gas routed to the intake manifold. Vacuum is applied to the EGR valve in response to the throttle opening. The vacuum control the movement of the taper valve connected to the vacuum diaphragm in the EGR valve.

Late Models : The EGR volume control valve uses a step motor to control the flow rate of EGR from exhaust manifold. This motor has four winding phases. It operates according to the output pulse signal of the ECM. Two windings are turned ON and OFF in sequence. Each time an ON pulse is issued, the valve opens or closes, changing the flow rate. When no change in the flow rate is needed, the ECM does not issue the pulse signal. A certain voltage signal is issued so that the valve remains at that particular opening.

I was working for a company that used 1995 Caravan's for their sales force and I do not know of any sensor. I am confused by the term "cover".

Do you mean valve cover? If so does the sensor go somewhere? I can solve your problem, but I need move info. Please call or email me.

Either,way let me know the outcome. Your feed back is my only reward. Also, please rank my answer with as many thumbs as you think I should get.

05 Gnd Caravan 3.3L - code: P0406


Exhaust gas recirculation sensor A (circuit high)
Obviously the sensor or connection is faulty. I'd try cleaning connection with contact cleaner, add some di-electric grease/lube to the connection, check all vacuum lines if applicable & have code erased, and try it.
