SOURCE: Secondary air supply failure

I have a 2005 Envoy with a 4.2..... Just recently the check engine light illuminated so I read the code after replacing the 20amp fuse labeled cigar. My OBDII connection had no power so if you plug your reader in and nothing check the fuse under the hood labeled "cigar"
After pulling the code P0410 Secondary Air Injection Malfunction I checked the operation of the air pump by removing the hose connected to the solenoid. By the way the solenoid is located on the pass side of the engine top towards the back. After pulling the hose off the solenoid I started the vehicle when it was cold and after 20 seconds or so the pump should turn on and blow air out of the hose. Once I verified the pump was operating I pulled the solenoid then placing jumpers from the Positive & Negative of the battery to the pins on the solenoid. You should be able to hear the solenoid click which says its operating. But mine did nothing so I read across the pins with an Ohm meter and verified the coil was good.
So take some good penetrating oil and fill the inside of the valve with it. You can see the plunger shaft assy in the opening and thats the area you want to fill with a good penetrating oil!!!! Let it sit for a couple of hours keeping it full of oil. The housing is aluminum and the shaft is likely to be a brass material so rust is not possible. Its caused by a buildup of carbon!! The penetrating oil will soften the carbon which in turn will free up the plunger!! MINE WORKS GREAT NOW and plus you will save around $140.00 if you were to buy it from the dealer!!! Or $80.00 aftermarket from RockAuto.com

SOURCE: Code P0411 is showing Secondary Air Flow problem

The P0411 code you are getting with that SAAB is the SECONDARY AIR INJECTION CHECKVALVE 95% of the time. This sometimes will allow condensation to build up in the air lines
that run to the air pump and air filter. Its part of the emmisions BS that they put on these cars. The check valve is costly, its usually about $100 or more depending on where you live I guess but its
much cheaper than $600+ dollars plus labor for a new air pump.

In some uncommon instances this may not be the problem, but this is a known issue with the SAAB Q93 and some other models. Once replaced it should be ok for another 100,000 miles +/-.

Hope this helps as late as I am finding your issue!

SOURCE: Code P0410- Secondary Air Injection Malfunction

The air injection reaction system (AIR) is on all 2004+ 4.2's. There is an electric blower under the truck, tucked inside the frame rail about under the drivers seat. The blower draws it's clean air from a hose tied into the air inlet tube between the airfilter box and Throttle body, pressurizes it slightly and blows this clean air into a port in the cylinder head directly above the exhaust manifold, dead center. There is a can shaped check valve bolted to this port with the air hose clamped to it and an electrical connection. The most common failure point of this system is this check valve. Remove the hose, the electrical connection and 2 bolts and it's off. Very easy. Problem is, it's about a $125 dealer only item.:banghead: The check valve gets corroded/cruded up and doesnt seat. Let it go long enough and moisture from the exhaust can back flow into the system and destroy the $$$ electric air blower. I'd start by removing and checking the valve and check the hoses for water.
Inspect the air pump and wire harness under the Trailblazer's frame rail, since you did mentioned that your had your transmission serviced and they would have had to work under there to remove the transmission pan to replace the transmission fluid and filter. There are 2 fuses you need to check also. AIR fuse 60amp....AIR solenoid fuse 15amp.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

Still having problems will not run good. 1997 ford 2.0 escort;new plugs&wires coil;fuel pump still codes 0351;


From a reputable repair website:


P0351 - OBD-II Trouble Code

Auto Systems and Repair

Ignition Coil "A" Circuit Primary/Secondary Malfunction Our emissions expert has put together the following information about the P0351 fault code. We have also included diagnostic procedures you can take to your repair shop if the mechanic is having difficulty analyzing the code.
OBD II Fault Code
  • OBD II P0351 Ignition Coil "A" Circuit Primary/Secondary Malfunction
What does this mean? The ignition coil or coils are responsible for igniting the air/fuel mixture inside the combustion chambers. Without reliable performance from the ignition coil(s) the vehicle will stumble and misfire.
Code P0351 indicates there's an electrical problem in either the primary ( the computer side ) or the secondary ( the spark plug side ) of the Ignition Coil "A" Circuit.
Symptoms
  • Check Engine Light will illuminate
  • Engine idles rough
  • Engine misfires on acceleration
  • In rare cases, the engine may not exhibit noticeable symptoms
Common Problems That Trigger the P0351 Code
  • Defective Ignition Coil(s)
  • Defective Spark Plug(s)
  • Intake Manifold Vacuum leaks
  • Carbon buildup in the Throttle Body air passages
  • Defective Idle Air Control Valve or Electronic Body
Common Misdiagnosis
  • Ignition coil(s) replaced when cause of the malfunction was a vacuum leak
  • Spark Plugs replaced when cause of the malfunction was a vacuum leak

    Code p1659


    ok , you scanned or Autozoned it, if latter?, fail you do.
    did they write it down wrong?
    the code must be told accurately, (im sure you know that)

    this code needs honda only meanings, P1
    Electronic Throttle Control System Control Relay Off Malfunction
    blown 7.5a fuse #15?
    baring a simple fuse.
    read the FSM./
    the FSM covers this code, what to do and to find which part is
    bad , not guessing, the ECU cant tell you what part is bad or dirty.
    it only tells you what tests failed.
    read the FSM or take the car to any ASE certified Mechanic.
    this car is Throttle by wire. technology. (a pain , the TSB proves it.)

    ever heard of a TSB? all good mech read them first
    here is one example, on topic. too.

    MIL Comes On With DTC P1659 TSB 05-008
    SYMPTOM
    In cold temperatures, the MIL comes on with DTC P1659 (electronic throttle control system control relay OFF malfunction). PROBABLE CAUSE Moisture inside the throttle control relay may freeze. This would cause the relay to fail, storing DIG P1659 along with any of these DTCs: P0135: Rear Air Fuel Ratio (A/F) Sensor (Bank 1, Sensor 1) Circuit Malfunction, P0141: Rear Secondary Heated Oxygen Sensor (Secondary HO2S, Bank 1, Sensor 2) Heater Circuit Malfunction, P0155: Front Air Fuel Ratio (A/F) Sensor (Bank 2, Sensor 1) Heater Circuit Malfunction, P0161: Front Secondary Heated Oxygen Sensor (Secondary H025, Bank 2, Sensor 2) Heater Circuit Malfunction, P0498: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Canister Vent Shut Valve Control Circuit Low Voltage. CORRECTIVE ACTION Replace the electronic throttle control relay, the air/fuel sensor relay, and the starter cut relay.

    What does it mean when code p1516 shows up on a06 chevy impala


    There is a service bulletin on this for some Chevy trucks, may include your model of car. I would check with Chevy to be sure.
    The code means the computer has received a reading from the throttle position sensor that is out of range and not what it should be.
    The throttle actuator control module would need to be tested to proceed.
