EBPV unplug?

Couple of questions on this - I've read about it but didn't find any clear answers.* It sounds like the EBPV can cause some problems and I think mine may be sticking - getting some hissing at times that I didn't have before.This is to the left of the turbo, correct?Can this just be unplugged to keep the valve open with no codes or problems?Thanks.

It is directly under the turbo on the pedestal. It faces to the front of the engine. Kinda a tight fit, just flip the wire keep and pull it off and thats it.

I wired mine up to a switch I think it helps the truck warm up alot on cold mornings. but it can be unpluged with out any probs. there will be a stored code but it will not set the CEL.

Like Ryan said. The plug is right under the turbo. I also had the ebpv brake on my old truck. If you don't need the brake then just unplug it. Otherwise another common problem was the ebpv tube gets clogged over time. It goes from the passenger exhaust manifold to the sensor which is right above the water pump. The tubes get plugged with soot and they need to be cleaned. When they plug up it will cause false readings to the ebpv and make it open/close irratically.
