    DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE (DTC) 32 WILL SET WHEN
    The PCM monitors EGR effectiveness by de-energizing the EGR control, thereby, shutting "OFF" the EGR valve. With the EGR valve closed, and Oxygen Sensor (O2S) fluctuating normally, fuel integrator counts will be greater than they were during normal EGR operation. If the change is not within the calibrated window, after failing the test twice, a DTC 32 will be set.

    The PCM will check EGR operation when:

    • Throttle position between 10% and 25% angle.
    • Steady throttle with no more than 2% change in throttle.
    • Above 32 mph "Closed Loop" operation.
    • Max short term fuel trim less than 6 counts for 3.2 seconds.
    • Desired EGR command greater than 40%.
    • Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) above60 kPa (17.5 in. of Hg.) or less than 15 kPa (4.4 in. of Hg.).

    ACTION TAKEN (PCM WILL DEFAULT TO)
    The PCM will turn "ON" the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL).

    DTC 32 WILL CLEAR WHEN
    Conditions for fault are no longer present and TECH 1 scan tool "clear DTCs" function is used, 50 ignition switch keycycles have passed with no further faults, or ignition switch is turned "OFF" and ECM "B" fuse is removed for 10 seconds.

    DTC CHART TEST DESCRIPTION
    Number(s) below refer to circled number(s) on the diagnostic chart.


    1. This step checks the pintle's ability to be commanded to the desired position.
    2. This step checks for voltage to the linear EGR valve to verify if the problem is in the ignition feed circuit.
    3. This checks the PCM control circuit by jumpering across the CKT 435 and CKT 439 with a test light and grounding the diagnostic connector to command the EGR "ON."

    DIAGNOSTIC AIDS
    Before replacing PCM, use an ohmmeter and check the resistance of each PCM controlled relay and solenoid coil. With J 39200 Digital Volt-Ohm Meter (DVOM) , check resistance of EGR pins:

    • A to E...7.8 - 8.6 Ohms
    • B to D...Above 3k
    • D to C...From 0.7 to 4.0k ohms when slowly moving pintle valve inward.
