What would you like to do?
What needs to be done to a 96 Voyager SE 3.3 V6 if the diagnostic code is P0403 EGR solenoid circuit short or open?
Hey John==On the intake close to the EGR there is a solonoid that has wires and vac lines going to it. Make sure the wires are connected and not shorted. GoodluckJoe
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
if youre looking at the engine with the hood up the egr valve is going to be on your right side about two inches from the exhaust headers.
What is the difference between the bwd egr valve egr 1589 and egr 1582 im asking because i need to replace the valve on my grand caravan se 2005........ 3.3 l 6v engine?
The was a mid-year modificatiion that required a change in the EGR Valve. EGR1582 is for vehicles with engine option code XZZ. EGR1589 is for all other engine options. The… best way to find out if your vehicle has option code XZZ is to call your Chrysler dealer and give them your VIN number.
I guess you could call them 'reciprocals' in a sense. -- "Open circuit" . . . Has a very high resistance. Nominally infinite. . . . No voltage, no matter how high, is hig…h enough to produce any current through the circuit. . . . Current through it is always zero. . . . Household example: a light switch that's open (labeled OFF in that position). -- "Short Circuit" . . . Has a very low resistance. Nominally zero. . . . Any voltage, no matter how small, is enough to produce very high current through the circuit. . . . Household example: toddler stuck a paper-clip into the two holes of the outlet.
Answer Don't know the coolant capacity for your specific model year. I have a 1990 Grand Voyager 3.3L. The coolant capacity as specified in my owner manua…l is 8.5 qts. Answer The Hanes manual lists the coolant capacity for this 1999 3.3 liter engine as 10.5 quarts. Incredibly the owners manual does not list the coolant capacity. Shame on you Chrysler company.
Consider two points (A and B) in an electric circuit. An open circuit between A and B means there is no electrical connection between A and B. A short circuit between A and B …means there is an electrical connection between A and B.

Open circuit means the circuit is not continuous . A short circuit is continuous but has a fault connecting between either live to neutral or earth .As result of this we saw t…hat this answer is unsufficent to explain short and open circuit on the other hand you can use this answer also like i did:)
Egr solenoid circuit malfunction
an open circuit is a circuit that does not complete the circle. an open circuit does not do the job as the electricity stands still a short circuit is a circuit that wires… have crossed and the electricity takes the shortest path. and does not complete all of the points on the circuit
Can you bypass the ac pulley when changing a serpentine belt in a 96 Plymouth grand voyager se 3.3 l if so how long should the belt be?
Answer You can almost always bypass the A/C Compressor in any car. Most of them cam with or without A/C. :-) OPTION 1) Call the parts store and ask for the serpent…ine belt of a 96 PLymouth Grand Voyager SE. If they ask "with or without A/C" then say "without" and it should be the belt you need. If they don't ask, then they never built that car without A/C so go to option #2. (Note: An SE may just be an options package that includes A/C so you may want to ask for base model parts) OPTION 2) note the pulleys on either side of the A/C compressor. Hold a string from the center of one to the other. Note that length. Now, holding the string in the same 2 positions, follow the path of the belt around the A/C compressor. Note that length. Subtract the first measurement from the last and go to parts store and get 3 belts that are the same width and thickness as the original. Get one with the length you derived in the string test and one a little shorter and one a little longer. Hopefully one will work just right and you can take the other 2 back. :-) **** I JUST DID THIS TODAY ***** I drove my 1998 Voyager SE 3.3L v6 to a parts store to hunt for a belt without A/C. The replacement that is in ALL parts store computers have the WRONG ONE for this to work, but it is POSSIBLE. the belt size is 860KP. it may have more numerals in front of that, but if you get a belt that size, you can bypass the A/C (which just fell apart; broken brackets, etc -- American auto engineering). The major difference in the routing is THE WATER PUMP WILL BE DIRECTLY DRIVEN FROM THE CRANKSHAFT PULLEY AND THE GROOVES OF THE BELT WILL BE FACING THE WATER PUMP'S SMOOTH PULLEY; WHICH IS OPPOSITE FROM WITH THE A/C. Keeping that in mind, you'll have a tight enough fit until you can figure out how youre gonna repair the original problem, but this will make the van more than a ton of cheap metalurgy (sp) than it is. I love my Voyager, but it should have been made my more reliable parts and metals. Everythings gone aluminum, just think of whats riding on your tires (including you). And space is limited under the hood, as if this thing wasnt designed to break. Truth is, its not designed to be fixed; I call these 60 month cars, "throwaways."
Trouble code P0403 means: EGR Control Solenoid Circuit Malfunction
In an open circuit, no current flows since there is no path to the load and ground. In a short circuit the supply voltage is directly connected to ground.

I changed mine by removing the battery. Then you can get your sockets and wrench into this space and take out the two bolts holding it on.
Answer The EGR Solenoid on the 3.0L Flex Fuel is located behind and to the right of the distributor cap. It sticks up about an inch and a half and is about 1 and a …quarter inch in diameter

EGR valve is on the back of the engine by the firewall. take off the air cleaner completely and then look down the back of the engine and you will see a round object with an e…logated egg shaped base with 2 nuts holding it on. I replaced mine and my gas mileage went up to 26-27 miles to the gallon
There really is no "EGR solenoid" as such. The EGR valve is a digital electronically-operated assembly consisting of three motors ("solenoids") and three needle valves. It is… replaced as needed as a unit (about $250.00). The valve assy is bolted to the intake mount by 2 10mm bolts. If you are getting a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code)such as "#3 EGR solenoid fault" it REALLY (generally) means that the very small orifice (port) for the exhaust to enter the intake is clogged up. To Repair: remove the EGR valve assy, spray liberally with INTAKE BODY CLEANER (NOT carb cleaner)and root out with small wire such as coat-hanger wire bent to fit. It will most likely re-clog within 1 year. I know of no permanent repair. Mark,,,Raleigh, NC
