That's what I had to do to my 2007 ram 1500. (Disconnect battery) Been two years now and it has not come back on for egr issues.

Drive your truck normally and if, after about a week, the light stays off you're good to go. It can take several days for the computer to run the complete diagnosis on all the vehicle's systems. HTH. -Jim

    What would make a 'check engine' light come on then, after several miles, go off. The vehicle seems to run fine. No shaking. No stuttering. No adverse effects.
