    I haven’t replaced EGR I have blanked and deleted it.

    When you say disconnect the MAF does this need to be connected again? Sorry for being blonde lol

    I've adjusted me post above lol,.
    The egr is controlled electronically There's a motor and feedback circuit. So it could actually be the EGR valve it's self that shyte the bed.

    In this case blanking it won't make much difference if the car senses a fault.

    But if I’ve just had an EGR delete surely this fault should go as the ECU isn’t showing there is an EGR valve anymore?

    without diagnostics you are guessing, It will only waste time and cost money. Find someone near you that can diagnose the fault, then you can rectify it.

    There is still a stepper motor in there, if the car senses it's malfunctioning it'll flag a fault up, regardless.

    PO405 is a generic code ,which suggests that the EGR delete has not told the ECU not to look for the EGR output

    Yes, if the fault flagged up after all the tomfoolery of the mappers.

    Take it back reinstate the EGR. EGR is so integrated into modern vehicles it is difficult to shake off. Besides it is illegal for you to drive your car on the road with it disabled.

    Could also be a failed DPFE sensor.

    Which is the Delta Pressure Feedback of EGR "DPFE".

    I'd take it back - not because the EGR delete obviously didn't work - but because its an Ejoke!

    But each to their own.

    On older Diesels, removal and blanking the EGR was common and was not disastrous.....on modern machines, as Wammers aludes too, removal is now considered an illegal modification and the vehicle is no longer road worthy as it would not pass the MOT requirements.
