    When you say the EGR valve was deleted, by who and how? If it was done correctly via a remap then I am not sure how it could still be generating a fault code.

    I could be missing something here so I look to our senior diesel boffins to shed some light on this one.

    I don't know if this ECU fuse removal might work, it does on a Saab 9-3, fuse 2 to be exact. By pulling this fuse for 60 seconds and reinserting it, you start the ECU back of on a learning curve. It won't or should I say it should not lose any pre-programmed settings but it will restart the learning capability's of your driving style and adapt the fuel and air etc accordingly.
