Trouble code on "99 Explorer is P1405. It has the xcode engine. Six cylinder. Runs fine but would appreciate help in finding the cause, Check engine light is on. Disconnected the battery for 15 min, drove to work, engine light came back on after 15 miles.
Thanks for any help. Bill

It might be a bad DPFE sensor, or a vacuum hose off the sensor....Jim

fixed, Jim, the vacuum lines on the DPFE sensor were brittle, when i pulled them off the sensor crumbled. $52 later and it is good to go thanks to you. Once again you have solved a problem for me. Thanks heaps. Bill
