2013~2016 Error code p0401

Hello everyone! First of all thank you for taking the time to read this! I have bought a 2015 2.2 AWD CX5 about a month ago. After the first refuel the check engine error appeared in the dashboard (coincidence or not). Went to the car to a multibrand workshop, they said is the EGR valve, most probably blocked and needed to be cleaned. Took at home the EGR off, cleaned it with EGR cleaning spray, after ~ 160 KM the error reappeared (error went off as the battery was disconnected). Measured the resistance between A and E pins on the valve connector, value was 02.6 ohms, below the 0.3-100 ohms (value found on some website to be correct). Discarded the old valve, bought a second Hand, measured the resistance and is 0.3 ohms, replaced the old one, and after about 80 - 100km the error reappeared. I'm stuck at this point, can anyone please help, any ideea, any service manual for 2015 CX5?
Thank you!!! Best regards from Romania, wish you all a great day!!

Buna Cosmin, ex Clujean. Maybe that EGR was bad as well. You should try a new one. IT is a diesel right? We don't really have much diesel activity here.

It could be bad EGR valve. Replacing the EGR valve with an updated part may solve the problem.
