Question about Cars & Trucks
Here is the Test procedure:-
1. Access the Air Injection Reaction (AIR) solid state relay, check for battery voltage on the Red/Black wire from fuse F117 and the Green/Black wire from fuse F111 and a good ground on the Black/Green wire. If OK, backprobe the Brown/Yellow wire with a jumper wire.
2. With the relay connected, ground the Brown/Yellow wire and verify that the AIR pump runs. If the pump does not run, leave the Brown/Yellow wire grounded, and check for battery voltage out of the relay on the Red/Black wire. If there is no voltage out the Red/Black wire, replace the relay. If there is battery voltage on the Black/Red wire, locate the AIR pump and verify that the Red/Yellow wire at the pump has battery voltage from the relay, and check for a good ground on the Black/Yellow wire at the pump. If battery voltage is present on the Red/Yellow wire, and the Black wire on the pump is a good ground, but the pump doesn't run, replace the AIR pump.
3. If the AIR pump runs, monitor the Oxygen (O2) sensor operation in closed loop before and after energizing the AIR pump, by grounding the AIR relay Brown/Yellow wire, to verify that both O2 sensors drop to lean readings within seconds of commanding the air pump on.
4. If neither O2 sensor signal goes lean after the AIR pump is commanded on, either the AIR pump has failed or has low output, or the AIR vacuum solenoid may have a functional (mechanical) problem that prevents it from allowing a vacuum signal to either of the switching valves. Locate the AIR vacuum solenoid and verify that it also has power on the Green/Blue wire and that the Brown/Red wire is grounded when the Brown/Yellow wire at the relay is grounded (this is the same wire). Check for good manifold vacuum into the solenoid, and check for vacuum out of the solenoid when the solenoid Brown/Red wire is grounded with the engine running. Check to make sure that the vacuum from the solenoid is reaching the AIR switching valves, and that the switching valves open when vacuum is applied. If all OK, the AIR pump is likely not pumping sufficient air.
5. If only one O2 sensor reading drops lean quickly, check for any problems with the exhaust on that side such as exhaust leaks or restrictions, or a faulty O2 sensor. Repair as needed and recheck operation. Tech tips The wire colors are different at the relay and the air pump and the diverter valve solenoid because of splices between the shared components. Due the location of the components, water ingestion into the air pump has been a problem. 2000 PCED On Board Diagnostics II SECTION 5: Pinpoint Tests Procedure revision date: 05/02/2003 HM: Secondary Air Injection (AIR) System HM: Introduction HM2.GO to HM6.HM3.REPAIR open circuit.HM4.REPAIR short circuit.HM5.REPLACE AIR bypass solenoid.HM11.
