- Road tested and concern did not duplicate. Scan tested computer control system for stored trouble codes. Found codes P0404 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve position sensor performance. and P0706 Transmission range sensor rationality. These two codes are the cause of the intermittent check engine light. Recommend replacing the EGR Valve assembly. Found several HVAC stored codes (from when the battery died). The HVAC modes are switching as designed at this time. Recommend to let the vehicle sit overnight and check again when the vehicle is cold. Checked the HVAC modes after sitting over night. The modes are a little slow to change when cold, most likely getting sticky. No action needed at this time. Recommend to monitor and replace blend/ mode actuators as needed.
