EBPV activating on a 60 degree day??

Hey all -
So I noticed today when I fired up my truck this afternoon when it was already 62 degrees out that my EBPV came on, but maybe not all the way? Is this one of the reasons folks just disconnect them? I have a surge issue that showed up awhile ago and I am wondering if this is why I now have surge when I didn't before?

So I can just disconnect it and it's spring loaded to be open? No codes from it?
Small connector on the front bottom of the turbo housing?

Thanks-
Scott

I think I'm going to yank the plug.
Anyone know what temp this thing is supposed to stop turning on?

I don't know a temp spec... I believe it is based off of coolant temp and/or oil temp? But you are not the only one, mine did it this morning actually with a low in the 50's... Doesn't bother me none, but at 4 30 am going to work and straight piped, kind of pisses off the ol' lady

Mine comes on all the time, I think my ambient air sensor is messed up. Doesn't bother me cause the second you touch any pedal it opens up. Just makes warm up faster.

Wow, so I guess it's not just me. I have had a dip in MPG lately and my truck surges when it never did so I just keep thinking it has something to do with it. Sounds like I am going to unplug it and crank up my tunes... and see if the truck surges like it did.
Thanks for the input!!

Shouldn't surge at all if you unplug it. It does create a drop in MPGs when it's on. So you'll be better off!

Id check your thermostat too, if your oil isn't getting warm enough the ebpv will keep trying to close to help warm up the engine.
