Icon5 401 error code (5th gen)

My engine light came on not to long ago and is now giving me a 401 code. ive heard that the 401 is a carbon build up code and usually has a simply solution. I have no idea what the 401 actually is and no idea how to begin to solve the problem. Any ideas???

Re: 401 error code (5th gen)

You've been making a lot of threads asking questions about your 5th gen, maybe you should start posting them in the 5th gen sub-forum?

Just an idea....

So i ended up replacing the egr valve and the check engine light went off for about a month and now its back on. the only thing left to try now is clean the egr port.
