I'm not sure where you got the codes... I have a Peake R5/FCX-3 - nice for diagnostics.

You should look at the various BMW forums out there - bimmerforums is a good one.

From a simple google search - Google is your friend...

I reset the CEL and it returned with just the P1421 and P1423 code. I researched the web and found that on the BMW, this is the secondary air pump for cylinders 1-3 that provides air to the exhaust during warm up. According to others, this may be due to a check valve stuck open or closed. Or, it could also be a leak in the output hose or a vacuum hose to the valves. The vacuum line runs close to the engine causing it to get brittle and crack. This 30 cents hose can cause the valve to stay closed, keeping water in the pump and eventually, corrosion to occur. I'll work on it over the weekend and post my results.

and

Low vacuum to the check valve. Found the Electric Valve Switch leaking vacuum. PN 11-74-7-537-612 $43.55.

1998 328i.. Got a 1421 and 1423 code...not sure where to start...


1997 BMW 328I 2.8L Customer Concern: MIL is on with trouble codes P1421 and P1423, for incorrect secondary airflow on both cylinder banks. Tests/Procedures: 1. Perform a functional test of the Air Injection Reaction (AIR) system. Tee a vacuum gauge into the vacuum hose attached to the diverter valve, located on the cylinder head towards the front of the engine.

2. Allow the vehicle to sit over night. Start the engine (cold) while monitoring the amount of vacuum on the gauge at startup. At temperatures from -10 to 40 degrees Celsius, there should be at least 17 inches of vacuum. At the same time, the AIR pump should run and pump a large volume of air into the exhaust. Potential Causes: A.I.R. Pump
Air Pump Relay
Restricted Cylinder Head
Diverter Valve
Tech Tips: These codes are related to a problem detected in the Secondary Air Injection system. Scan tools with BMW software include a feature to command the AIR pump on and off. The pattern failures for these codes are the AIR pumps due to leaks in the diverter valve and moisture or condensation in the AIR pump.

Possible fix but not all items. Just areas to look at:
Confirmed Fix - A.I.R. Pump - A.I.R. Diverter - A.I.R. Pump, Air Injection Reaction Diverter (AIRD) Valve - Air Injection Reaction Diverter (AIRD) Valve - Check Valve, Secondary Air Pump - Diverter Valve Vacuum Lines
