The lighter fuse is located in the underhood fuse block. It is a yellow 20 amp fuse lay the cover next to the fuse's then you can identify where its located in the panel Hope this helps

Code 1404 for Saturn cars means the computer thinks the EGR is not closing. But it can also mean the computer needs to be re-programmed. There are service bulletins for some models.
Code 405 is a problem with the EGR sensor which can be causing the other code.
Generally the sensor is telling the computer the valve is not closed when the computer commands it to be closed.
It may be tough to fix if the problem is not constant.

You would check the wires going to the motor at the switch, or at the motor, for power and ground.
The switch reverses power and ground for up and down.
So one wire going to the motor has power and the other has ground in one direction, and the opposite in the other direction.

EGR flow is monitored by the PCM by it looking for a reaction in the FRONT O2 sensor in responce to the command given to the EGR valve. The linear electronic EGR valve sends a return signal to the PCM indicating the relative position of the step motor and hence how far open (or closed) the EGR valve is in responce to the PCM command. The PCM expects to see (within a set of given parameters) a change in the O2 sensor reading (change in exhaust gas make up) after the EGR valve is commanded open or closed. If it doesn't, or that change is not within the expected parameters, a code will be set based on the skewed data. Generally a "insufficient flow" code will be set by:

1.Faulty EGR valve (sticking, or "lying" to the PCM about the actual valve position)
2.Faulty electrical connection at the EGR valve (causing false data)
3.Clogged EGR passages
4. Bad read from the MAP, or TPS, causing the PCM to misinterpret the EGR data based on faulty operational data from the other sensors
5. (Very rarely) A marginally "slow" O2 sensor. (PCM does not "see" the change in exhaust make up quick enough and interprets that as poor EGR flow.)
I have found that normally this code means that the EGR is not opening the amount that it has been commaneded to by the PCM. Normal cure for me lately has beed to repalce the EGR valve and to clean out the passages while the valve is off. The Tech 2 is able to command the EGR open and show the commanded opening and the actual opening. When this code is present the actual and commanded do not match closely at all.
