Hello everyone. Before everyone bashes me for not searching the forums for this problem, I have, just to clear that up.
I have an 08 F250 and have had a DPF Delete and EGR blocker plates on for a couple years. I have an SCT Livewire 9625EOR for tuning with only canned tunes. For the most part, I am satisfied with it and the canned tunes. I recently decided to do the full EGR delete and Remove the EGR coolers as well and install an intake elbow. After install, the little green wrench came on the display but truck seemed like everything functioned properly. I plugged the EGR back into the wiring harness and the wrench went away, unplugged and it came back. I flashed my truck again and made sure that I selected "EGR Components Disabled", but light was still there.
I went to the forums thinking that surely there was a fix. The only fix that I found was paying for a custom tune. I went back out to my shop and grabbed my Ohm meter and checked the resistance between the pins on the removed EGR valve. The only solid reading I got was between two pins and it was 4.7Kohms. I went to Radio Shack and bought a package of 1/2Watt, 4.7Kohm resistors. I installed a resistor in the wiring harness to correlate between the two pins on the EGR valve. The result... no green wrench light!
So, I have drove truck around yesterday, around 100 miles, and all seems fine. My question is, does anyone know if this has been tried before and could it cause any potential problems? Less that $2 for package of resistors vs $75+ for a custom tune. Thanks.
