Question about Lincoln Cars & Trucks
2000 Lincoln LS V6... OBD code po0411
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.

You didn't mention the fuse rating of the one you replaced so this method may not help if it was higher than ~5 amps.At this point, I would wire a 12 volt bulb, preferably, one with 40-50 watts rating (headlamp will do fine) in place of the fuse that is blowing and start pulling likely connectors until the light goes out.
If you don't get results this way, you might try disturbing one bundle of wire after another since this could be happening because of insulation that has been pinched or worn through to reach ground.
Using a bulb instead of bridging the fuse with a piece of coathanger will prevent melting the wire and possibly compounding the problem.

- If temp guage reads normal, the lack of heat may be due to the Heater Control Valve. Located in front of the radiator. Lower passenger side. A real bugger to replace.
- The plastic cap just over the thermostat is key in re-filling the anti freeze and bleeding air.

it is chocking for air! in you rubber air hose under hood the one that goes to your air filter you might find that switch opens and closes the air flow might be the switch you scanned!!unless it is located else where?????????hope this helps

6 Cylinder Applications
First column is of course cylinder no., 2nd is the igntion coil, 3rd is the coil driver,4th is the PCM pin number,and last the related code.

Usual causes are air in air pump, solenoid malfunction, the secondary air check valve, or loss of power to pump solenoid. Pinched, loose, cracked, or broken hoses can also cause this code.
