Hi Thanks for requesting me Normally I see this code 2272. when the EGR valve has failed. And the Other code 2274 is for a EGR pressure sensor The EGR differential pressure sensor is located on the intake side of the engine. make sure you remove the small pipe plugs in the intake and ensure the ports are not plugged with soot. Please take a moment to Rate/Accept my service

Fault Code: 2274
PID(P): P411
SPN: 411
FMI: 4/4
Lamp: Amber
SRT:

Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve Delta Pressure Sensor Circuit - Voltage Below Normal or Shorted to Low Source. Low signal voltage detected at the EGR differential pressure sensor circuit.

EGR valve actuation will be disabled.

Possible causes of this fault code include:

  • A signal circuit open or shorted to ground in the engine harness or sensor
  • A supply wire open or shorted to ground
  • A malfunctioning EGR differential pressure sensor.

CodesReasonEffect

Fault Code: 2272
PID(P): P27
SPN: 27
FMI: 4/4
Lamp: Amber
SRT:

EGR Valve Position Circuit - Voltage Below Normal or Shorted to Low Source. Low signal voltage has been detected at the EGR valve position sensor circuit.

EGR valve actuation will be disabled.

Possible causes of this fault code include:

  • EGR valve position sensor wiring shorted to ground, open circuit, or shorted to power supply
  • Loss of the EGR valve position sensor supply voltage or the ground circuit.
  • Fuel Injector wiring harness shorted to ground, open circuit, or shorted to power supply.

I only have the 2272 p27 fmi4. Is there a troubleshooting tree or wire diagram that I can use to determine if the egr failed, or is just so common that you replace it?

If you had the fault 352 for the 5 volt supply circuit i would lead you to a power issue. Here is the tree. Your kinda wasting your time if you have power to the valve. I sent a diag of the pins for the valve . Hope it helps. And if you remove the crossover tube from the valve and notice its wet. The EGR cooler has failed.
