ECU 002791.07 – Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve Control Error. John Deere System Advisory.

ECU 002791.07 (ECU 2791.07)

Code: 002791.07

Shortcode: 2791.07


This diagnostic code, ECU 002791.07, is set when there is a discrepancy between the desired and actual positions of the EGR valve, indicating that the valve is not responding correctly or is out of adjustment during its learning process. This may be due to mechanical sticking, actuator failure, or feedback sensor issues.


The ECU may attempt to reinitiate the learning process or adjust EGR operations to compensate, potentially limiting engine performance to prevent damage or excessive emissions.


  • Inspect EGR Valve and Actuator: Check for physical obstructions, sticking, or mechanical wear that could prevent the valve from reaching or maintaining the desired position.
  • Test Position Sensors and Actuator: Ensure the sensors that feedback position data and the actuator controlling the valve are functioning correctly.
  • Calibrate EGR System: Perform a recalibration of the EGR system to realign the actuator’s position with ECU expectations.
  • Replace Faulty Components: If recalibration does not resolve the issue, replace faulty sensors, actuators, or the valve itself.
  • Reset ECU and Re-test System: After repairs or replacements, reset the ECU to clear the fault code and conduct a comprehensive system test to ensure proper function.


Regular calibration and maintenance of the EGR valve and its control mechanisms are crucial to ensure optimal engine performance and emissions compliance.
