P0410

Secondary Air Injection System fault
Explanation
The air injection system is monitored for faults
Probable Causes
1) Circuit relay defective or fuse open

3) AIR pump defective or hoses blocked


P0128
Fault Code Definition
  • Engine temperature has not increased and/or reached the correct level within a specified amount of time after engine startup

As for the po128 I would replace the thermostat first. That is the problem 99% of the time.

Code P1420 suggests replacing the secondary injection pump relay, where is the relay?


17828/P1420/005152 - Secondary Air Injection Solenoid Valve (N112): Electr. Malfunction Possible Causes
  • Secondary Air Injection Solenoid Valve (N112) faulty
  • Secondary Air Pump Relay (J299) faulty
Possible Solutions
  • Check Secondary Air Injection Solenoid Valve (N112)
  • Check Secondary Air Pump Relay (J299)
The secondary air injection pump relay (J299) is inside the engine compartment, left side, behind air cleaner housing, under a black plastic protective cover you can lift up to reveal it. It's near the brake fluid reservoir beside the odd black plastic cover for the wiring harness beside the shock absorber tower.

Rating my suggestion let's me know how helpful it was correcting your problem. Your rating is truly appreciated and would take the very least of time and effort away from you. Thank you

99 volkswagen beetle 2.0 engine problem


Cat is usually damaged from vehicle misfiring, Those codes you posted are a MAF, idle control, and 02 sensor codes. The MAF sensor could be reading incorectly causing the car to run rich or lean, and giving the 02 sensors bad readings, i would deffinetly look into the MASS Air Flow sensor, which is located on the intake tuping near the airbox

You can also try cleaning it with MAF sensor cleaner

1998 vw beetle codes p0411 and p1128


P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected
The 4mm inside diameter vaccuum hose gets pinched between the lower intake manifold and the secondary air pump housing, flattening it over time.
Here's a link to the steps to fix yourself if you are mechanically inclined...

P1128 Long Term Fuel Trim Is Too Lean
It is very likely this code is coming up because of the vacuum hose as well.

Check engine light,'99 beetle


Have you had your brake light sensor replace. They have a recall on it. Change out your drive belt and it should make the noise go away. As long as it's cooling(a/c) i would not change compressor.

Reset check engine light after repairs. Which fuse? 99 New Beetle


goto a sears automotive center,walmart,pepboys or some place like that, they sell OBD 2 code readers for the car, you connect it up to the computer and it will tell you what the code is that is setting the light off on the dash, if it is what you fixed, then you click on the the button to reset the light and you are done... the OBD2 readers can be anywhere from $20 to $40 or so dollars from those places. just get a cheap one cause that will save you a lot of money. but atleast then if the light ever comes on again you can connect the reader up read the code and fix the problem that is causing the check engine light to come on...hope this helps and saves you money

When you say water light comes on, do you mean coolant level, or coolant temp or ? Check coolant level and top off if needed. Bring the Beetle to a parts store, most offer free check of check eng. light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the cars diagnostic port (usually located under the dash) and 'read' stored engine codes in the cars computer. They can tell you what the codes mean, and suggest what to do. If you have further questions, post them here along with the code numbers.
