There are a few things to look at here.

First, make sure the egr tube is clear. Sometimes they will get full of carbon and cause the issue. The sensor is basically not seeing the egr function. If it's blocked then there will be no change. If you find the tube is blocked, usually a can of carb cleaner and a wire coat hanger will clear it for you.

If that's not the issue, pull the sensor itself. Make sure there isn't any water in it. Tap it on your hand to see if water comes out. If it does, then the sensor is no good and needs to be replaced.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
