Changed pedestal.....check engine light on??

I just changed out the stock pedestal for a Garrett non EBV one and now my check engine light is on.
There was a sensor on the stock pedestal, there is not one on the new pedastal.
Is there a fix for this?
Can I just brdge the wires on the connector?
I need to get the check engine light off becuse I live in Komifornia and I need to get the truck smogged soon.

The truck is an 02 7.3

I found the one for the 02... Do I really need to waste $40 on this?
Can't I just bridge the wires?

Uh. No. You must have a CA emissions truck if the EBPV solenoid being disconnected causes the CEL to illuminate.


Shorting the wires will cause just that, a short. This can damage the PCM over time.


Take the EBPV solenoid out of the old pedestal, plug it in, and drop it in the engine valley. That will work for a little while until the diagnostic strategy determines that the EBPV is not closing during testing.

Yes, it is a CA truck.

Does anyone know how to DIY a plug?
I really hate to spend $40 on something that will probably cost me under $5 to throw together myself if I had a "how to".
