Hello, please give me a moment to look up this code.

Hello, There are 4 sensors if you count the EGRT on the Y pipe. It sounds like you have a wiring concern. Usually the wire will break off inside the connector. I would unplug EGT 1 in the exhaust and tug on each wire. Usually the wire will pull out if it is broken. You can purchase replacement pigtails from Ford to correct this concern. That is what I have seen happen with this code and the sensor didn't correct the issue.
