    the fuses were ok, the pump came on for about 5-10 seconds, then went out, then came on for 5 more seconds, then that was it. i have a relay tester and foung that the relay was at fault. i'll know in 2 days if that solves the problem.

    is the air pump supposed to come on all the time or when the car is started? i did replace the relay.

    the car was driven locally for about 5 days, then the check engine light came on again around the

    5th day. need more help on this. any suggestions?

Do you hear the air pump run when you start the car? No? Check the A.I.R. pump fuse in the under hood fusebox. if it is blown then you probably need a new air pump motor. If the fuse is not blown then the relay could be the culprit. if you can hear the pump running when you start it the engine then you probably just have some wiring issues from the relay to the ecm it can still work ok but fail the resistance test that the computer runs randomly. Give some more info and I'll help you through this.
Good luck.

I have a service engine soon light on and have hooked up an OBD11 reader to it and got code P0410 pertaining to a secondary air injection problem. hoses are fine, pump is new.


P0410 Oldsmobile - Secondary Air Injection System Malfunction

Possible causes: - Faulty Vacuum hoses damaged
- Faulty Air Pump inoperative
- Air bypass solenoid harness is open or shorted
- Air bypass solenoid circuit poor electrical connection
- Air bypass solenoid leaking/blocked or stuck open/closed
- Air diverter valve leaking/blocked or stuck open/closed

Tech notes: Visually inspect AIR pump and AIR bypass valve harness and connector, if connector are OK, then replaced AIR bypass valve.

When is the code detected? The secondary air injection system does not detect the presence of air in the exhaust when introduced by the secondary air injection system.

Possible symptoms: - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Engine hesitation

P0410 Oldsmobile Description An air pump is used on the vehicle to lower tail pipe emissions on start-up. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) grounds the Air pump relay control circuit which energizes the Air pump. The PCM also grounds the Air combination valve vacuum control solenoid circuit, which energizes the Air vacuum control solenoid. Vacuum is then applied to both Air combination valve diaphragms which opens the shut off valves. The PCM enables both circuits simultaneously when Air system operations id desired. When the AIR system is active, then Air pump forces fresh air into the exhaust stream in order to accelerate catalyst operation. The AIR combination valves replace the conventional check valves. When the AIR system is inactive the shut off valves prevent air flow in either direction.

What does this code mean? P0410


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0410 indicates that your secondary air injection system is not functioning properly.
Not all 2001 Chevrolet Bazers are equipped with secondary air injection. The secondary air injection system was added to vehicles that were to be sold in certain areas where the emissions laws required it, like the State Of California.

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the system by commanding the secondary air blower motor to run and the air injection solenoid to open. This causes additional oxygen to enter the exhaust system. The PCM then monitors the signal from the oxygen sensors to see if the commanded air has in fact, entered the exhaust system. Code P0410 sets when the PCM has commanded the blower motor on and the solenoid open and there is little or no change in the oxygen sensor signal.

GM has had some problems with these systems and there has been a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) issued that addresses some of the known concers. Below is a brief description of the TSB and the issues involved.

Bulletin No.: 04-06-04-015A
Date: November 28, 2006
TECHNICAL
Subject:
LN2, L43 or L35 Engine SES/MIL Light Illuminated, AIR Pump Ingesting Water and DTC P0410 Set (Replace AIR Pump and Inlet Hose Assembly)
Models:
1999-2003 Chevrolet Blazer, S10
1999-2001 GMC Jimmy
1999-2003 GMC Sonoma
1999-2001 Oldsmobile Bravada
with Vortec 2.2L I4 or 4.3L V6 Engine (VINs 4, 5, W - RPOs LN2, L43, L35)
Condition
Some customers may comment on the SES/MIL light being illuminated. Upon investigation, the technician may find a DTC P0410 indicating that there is a concern in the secondary air injection system.
Cause
Water may have collected in the AIR pump or the vent solenoid and frozen or corroded the pump.
Correction
Replace the AIR pump and install a new inlet hose and solenoid tube assembly...

The bulletin goes on and gives detailed information on how to perform the repair and the part numbers of the replacement parts needed to do so. Your local dealer can provide the parts for you and you can probably get them to print out a complete copy of the bulletin for you. It is not really hard to do if you want to do this yourself.

I have the following codes po410 and po491.......can u please tell me what they are so I can get my car fixed asap


P0410 - SECONDARY AIR INJECTION (AIR) SYSTEM
P0491 - SECONDARY AIR INJECTION (AIR) SYSTEM INSUFFICIENT FLOW (BANK 1)

Secondary air injection (trademarked as Air Injection Reactor) is a process where fresh air is injected into the exhaust system to allow for a fuller combustion of exhaust gasses.

The possible causes are:
SAIR pump low or now air flow
SAIR bypass solenoid leaking/blocked or stuck open/closed
SAIR diverter valve leaking/blocked or stuck open/closed
SAIR air hose restriction
SAIR vacuum hose restriction or leaking

Check to make sure your air filter isn't dirty - and replace if needed. Otherwise I would suggest having your local trusted auto repair facility diagnose and repair the issue. A scan tool will be needed to properly diagnose the issue.

Am looking for what the carmd code p0410 means for a 2004 buick ranier - my car md is not working right.


CEL light/code P0410, secondary air system fault.
DTC P0410 - Secondary Air Injection System

Suspect -
Relay/fuse (box B) loc 3 ,15amps
Pump $434(new) / $243 (Remanufactured) / $95 (used,Ebay)
solenoid $73
check valve $18
http://www.autopartswarehouse.com

A new pump, or simulator!

What signals the ECU, if the seconary Air Injection system isn't working?
H20 sensors, if running rich > Xtime throw code!
The pump only runs when the engine is cold, so the air & rich fuel mix is burnt in the exhaust manifold, so there's less Emission.

Check Engine ight


Hello there:
Here is the code
P0410 Secondary Air Injection System Malfunction
It is another air pump that pushes air into the exhaust so the cats can burn more pollution.. It does not affect drive train, just emmisions it shouldnt cost about $400 if it is the air pump, Unless there is a secondary problem, ok?
Hope this helps you out

Check engine light on, diagnostic code 0128 and 0410 keep coming up


P0128 - Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature)

P0410 - Secondary Air Injection System Malfunction
(has to do with exhaust system)

Note: There is a technical service bulletin (TSB) regarding code P0410 for a number of GM models. The TSB calls for the replacement of the AIR pump and the installation of a new secondary injection hose.
