EGR Valve Control Circuit – Current Above Normal or Grounded Circuit
|Fault Code: 2353
Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve control circuit – current above normal or grounded circuit. Excess current detected at the EGR valve motor output circuit.
Possible low power. Power will be removed from the EGR valve motor.
EGR Valve Motor Output Circuit
The Electronic Control Module (ECM) controls the EGR valve, opening and closing it based on various operating conditions. The EGR valve is opened and closed by a DC motor that receives voltage from the ECM on the EGR valve motor SIGNAL (+) and (-) circuits. To open the valve, the motor receives voltage on the EGR valve motor SIGNAL (+) circuit. To close the valve, the motor receives voltage on the EGR valve motor SIGNAL (-) circuit.
The EGR valve motor is located on the exhaust side of the engine and is attached to the EGR valve assembly, which is mounted to the exhaust manifold. Refer to Procedure 100-002 for a detailed component view.
The ECM monitors the current draw of this circuit. If the ECM detects excessive current for a calibrated period of time, it records this fault.
Possible causes of this fault include:
- EGR valve motor (+) or (-) leads shorted together in the engine harness, EGR valve motor, or ECM
- Low EGR valve motor internal resistance.
