I dont think it has anything to do with the smarty, mine said that and i dont have the smarty yet. what it is the ecm internal clock saying that the egr has to be serviced, i found that out a month so after the dealer put a new turbo and egr cooler on my truck, so i ask what was for and they give me the way to clear it. sorry cant remember how.

I have this same message ever 2500 to 3000 miles on the OHD. I clear the message with a code reader since I keep this in the truck. Smarty will also clear this to.
The Smarty will stay there are no CEl's, just erase any way. You might have to reset the OHD again but I have found that this is not necessary to do. The OHD will display System OK after I erase the message. Then 2500 miles later the OHD will display this again.
Hope this helps.

I get this same thing. Does anyone know why it is doing this? Could it be b/c I have a freeze plug in the egr tube

I guess you didnt read my message but it has to do with the trucks internal clock saying the egr has to be cleaned. Next time your at your dealer ask your service guy for a print out on how to clear all the stuff, like oil change and service required.

Next time this happends check and see if you dash screen says dpf full the internal dpf counter clock will trigger a service message in order to reset just unload and reload the catcher software. The software version you are running disables the egr deeming it useless.
