PCM Flash for P0406 Code?
I got code P0406 and a check engine light on now. I read on other forums that there could be a PCM flash per a TSB that could solve this. Is this true or not. Any help is greatly appreciated.

first of all.....dont believe what you read on "other forums"....LOL...J/K

How many miles on it? If you have in the 50K plus....time for a new EGR. They range anywhere from $40-$80

Its about to hit 100,000. OUCH! I dont, was trying to find the location of the EGR. But is there a flash update that could be needed?

a flash will do it no good. the egr is on the back right cornerof the intake manifold, just behind the TB on the drivers to the firewall. Its has a gold colored tube that runs from it to the intalke manifold. DO NOT touch that tube if the Jeeps been running.

Thanks Bro. I will pick one up and put it on. Do you recommend a dealer one or can I go aftermarket ie Advanced autoparts store?

Re: PCM Flash for P0406 Code?
well....thats up to you and what your willing to pay. I believe advanced has them for like $40....the dealer/oem will be more.

I'm also getting this code, so just swap out the EGR? I think the error is like po406 EGR high flow circuit A

Dealer wants $180 just to straight swap out EGR, $240 if they confirm my diagnosis of the issue. How hard is this to get the part from them and do myself?

On the 5.7 its a piece of cake.just did mine -119k and it is SOOOOO much smoother. I got mine at autozone 40 something bucks,however -hemi anyway- get the little blue seal for the egr tube to the intake from the dealer $5, mine was kinda jacked up. That way you dont have to do it twice :thumbsup:

edit: I was not getting codes. I just changed it cause of the miles and rough idle.

Had the EGR changed friday, as 4. whoa says, Jeep feels much healthier now all around, couldn't be happier, hopefully that dumb light stays off!
