Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

thank you

now this P0401 is caused by a restricted egr flow and the intake upper plenum will need to be removed and cleaned out, in order to perform some basic testing to confirm this and update the pcm you will need to have the Honda scanner to perform this task

now your battery light is whats flashing ?

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

here is the egr update kit that we were installing years ago but you can still purchase the parts in the kit form but will still need to drill the intake out as described in the bulletin.
