Condition

Some customers may comment on the "Service Engine Soon" (U.S.) or "Check Engine Soon" (Canada) malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) being illuminated.

Technicians may find these additional conditions:

DTC P0410 set.
Evidence of water in the Secondary Air Injection Reaction (AIR) Pump.
Secondary AIR Pump shorted out/inoperative.

Cause

This condition may be due to water being ingested at the secondary air injection reaction (AIR) pump inlet hose, causing the pump to short out or seize up.

Diagnostic Information

DTC P0410

Refer to SI for diagnostic information on DTC P0410.

If the diagnostic information above indicates a faulty AIR pump, follow the correction procedure below.

Notice: After the service procedure in this bulletin was been completed, the Secondary Air Injection Shut-Off valve(s) must be checked. A stuck valve (from carbon) can cause exhaust condensation to collect in the air pump causing a repeat non-function AIR pump.

Correction

Aurora and DeVille

    Notice: A new Secondary AIR pump and Inlet hose assembly (kit), P/N 19515548 , is now available and must be installed if the AIR pump is replaced. Non-replacement and re-routing of the AIR pump inlet hose when servicing the AIR pump may result in a repeat non-function AIR pump from water ingestion.

  1. Turn the wheels to the left.
  2. Open the hood and install fender covers
  3. On DeVille models, remove the upper filler panel. Refer to SI for information on the removal of the upper filler panel.
  4. Remove the left headlamp assembly. Refer Headlamp Replacement in SI.
  5. Remove the exiting AIR inlet hose retainer located between the inner and the outer fender.
  6. Remove the secondary AIR pump. Refer to Secondary Air Injection (AIR) Pump Replacement in SI.
  7. Remove the AIR pump inlet hose from the vehicle.

    Important: Located on the inner fender behind the air box there is a oval stamped hole. The new AIR filter must snap into this hole in order for the AIR pump to avoid ingesting water. Removal of the Air Cleaner Assembly may be necessary.
