Got a check engine light and P245a this morning.(egr cooler bypass circuit open) Should I wate for the the new flash that is coming or just take it on in. What ticks me off is I just put my brute force on and now I will get to take it all back off. The truck runs fine though. Thanks for the help!!

I would have them fix it whenever you can get to the dealer. The flash could be real soon but who knows.

I had about 3 of the p245a codes when I first got my truck. I can't remember what flash fixed it but is was last summer. I have not had it again. I am running an afe mega-cannon with pg-7 filter.

How is my cold air intake causing the problem?? I don't understand how this could cause a egr code? Has anyone else had this problem. The intake has been on for about 600 miles with no other issues Any help would be great, the dealer closed in my area and it's an hour drive to the nearest dealer.
Thanks

you are getting mor air into the system which is causeing the cel all i did to mine was put a 59 filter which is half the size and got the code everything is computer controlled if you ride it around it will learn it and go off
its just not used to seeing the better flow in air

Just a question. Why does mine never throw that code anymore. I have been running the afe mega-cannon with the pg-7 filter for 30,000 miles now. I put on the dry when I clean the pg-7 no codes.

Mine popped up with the P245A code today. I have had the icebox on for quite some time now.

Should I put the old filter on for a while? This is such a BS code!

Have had an AFE Stage II with Pg7 on my truck since it was brand new and never threw that code or any others for that matter.
