EGR valve will be closed.

EGR Differential Pressure Sensor Circuit for Original Sensor with Side Connector
EGR Differential Pressure Sensor Circuit for Updated Sensor with Rear Connector

Circuit Description

The EGR differential pressure sensor has two ports that sense exhaust pressure. The sensor outputs a voltage which represents the pressure difference between the two ports. The ECM uses this pressure difference to determine how much exhaust gas is flowing in the EGR connection tube to the intake manifold. This information is used to control the EGR valve for correct emission levels.

Component Location

The EGR differential pressure sensor is mounted to the air intake manifold between cylinders three and four. Refer to Procedure 100-002 (Engine Diagrams) in Section E for a detailed component location view.

Note: The original sensor is connected to the engine harness through a short pigtail harness. The pigtail harness is permanently affixed to the original sensor. Do not try to remove the connector that is attached to the original sensor body. Damage to the sensor will result.

Shop Talk

The EGR differential pressure sensor shares supply and return wires in the engine harness with other sensors. Opens and shorts in the engine harness can cause multiple fault codes to be active. Before troubleshooting Fault Code 2274, check for multiple faults.

Possible causes of this fault code include:

  • Signal circuit open in the engine harness, connectors, or sensor
  • Supply circuit open or shorted to ground
  • Leaks in the sensor EGR differential pressure tubes
  • Sensor shorted to ground.

Refer to Troubleshooting Fault Code t05-2274
