1994-dash light problem and check engine light on...(went to autozone...)

Hey, I just got a 1994 Jimmy the battery had to be recharged. The dash lights still dont work though, and also the check engine light is on. The guy at Autozone said that the code was for the egr valve letting too many fumes or something in...I really dont know what that means, or how much it costs to fix! If anyone can help that would be great!

Also, if anybody knows about the dash lights??

i had the same problem

Autozone told me 100$ for new egr valve....
I took a trip to the local junkyard and got two for free.

Pretty easy to install.....2 bolts hold it in.
Its right on the front of the engine.

Save the money and clean out the EGR.

yeah most of the time a chunk of carbon will be keeping the valve from fully opening and closing.

In addition, clean the throttle body while you're at it.
