Loose cables in engine compartment

This is on a 2008 F550 with the 6.4 L Turbo Diesel. Previous owner might have played around with it a little, but after I brought it home I found the cables/sensor hanging around as you see them in the picture. What are they? Can they stay there, or do I need to do something?

Thanks,
Dieter

Yes, he deleted the egr and cooler. Those are connectors for the valve and I believe flow sensor. He left one sensor plugged in for what I assume is to put check engine light out. He may or may not have had a retune of the PCM when he did the work.

The sensor that remains plugged in is the EGR temperature sensor 2 (EGR temp 1 being EGT pre-turbo). The loose one in your photo there is the EGR flow control motor assembly.

So, just leave it as it is will be OK?

I would pack the plug with die-electric grease and wrap it in good electrical tape.

I would also wire tie them to something rigid and walk away.

It's all good.
