Hi I see you are having trouble. I will try to help. I think you have a power supply problem , but that could be caused by the engine control module not sending signal to a relay, or a bad relay, bad fuse, or a shorted wire. Your problem is complex but I will do my best to assist you. The code P0105 refers to the map sensor circuit and P1402 refers to egr circuit. By looking at the schematic I see that these are fed by the same power supply. So we need to see if these sensors are receiving power. You can use a volt meter or a test light to see if there is power to these. The wire that feeds these is a red/black wire. Turn the key on and check for power at these 2 wires and we will go from there.

hi hilltop,


I finally found the problem, it was a plunger in the back of the epic diesel pump under the solonied. I changed and the light went off and the power was restored.


 


Thank you for your time and patience.
