thanks, ***** ***** see if i can pull up the codes.

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 11 months ago.

ok so our database does not have a code in that format. do you have access to a star diag machine or a chrysler scan tool?

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 11 months ago.

c1404 on any other car does point to a rear valve circuit , but that is just generically searching the fault code. sometimes scan tool interpret their own code numbers if its an odd model like the sprinter.

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 11 months ago.

i will opt out to see if another tech can help with the code you are getting, all of my codes are 3 digit and a letter. sorry , i will check back if i do find something , wish you luck man.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

As mentioned above this does not show to be a valid code for this vehicle, which is why you didn't find reference to it in the service information. It's pretty common for aftermarket scan tools to report codes incorrectly on Sprinters.

What module did you find this in?
What was the worded description?
