This is a very rare condition and we have recommended the removal of the CSCC on trucks with very finicky VPS sensors to remedy any CEL issue. You can PM me and I will get you set up.So this is the final answer? I have a 2015 3.5 ecoboost, totally stock with the #5030-124-CSCC system with the DVCC and CSCC. View attachment 80474

The dreaded P04DB continues to recur off and on. It was installed in Nov with 8000 miles, and I now have 10,800 miles. Have tried all the recommended recommendations: checked fittings, disconnected battery overnight etc etc. I've reset the CEL several times. Curiously, the light will go off, then several trips later it will re-light. I did drain the cans at the 10,800 interval and had less ~ 2-3 oz in DVCC and less than 1 oz in CSCC. I finally replaced the CSCC setup with the OE hose & VPS. No codes have returned after a number of trips and several hundred miles.
If there is no final solution other than get a tuner to override the CEL I would like to return the CSCC for a credit. Since the amount of fluid collecting in the CSCC is minimal, I would prefer to drive without it and the hassle of the CEL.
I cannot live with a CEL as I live in a non conforming EPA district and am required to get an emissions test annually. They will not pass the truck with an illuminated CEL. And if I reset it, they will detect this and will not continue the emissions test until I achieve the number of drive cycles to normalize the system. (At which point the CEL will be illuminated again.)
Joe, What do you recommend at this point?
