This code as you may already know is for the egr valve. does the light ever go off?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
If battery disconnected it goes off . After 11 miles goes back on and stays on
Expert:  Jesse Southard replied 5 months ago.

OK first thing to check will be vacuum lines and or hoses for leaks. I attached a picture. check the 3 hoses going to egr valve. If you don't find anything I would say you have a fualty egr valve.
