Good evening, I hope you are doing great today. My name is***** am a GM technician and would be happy to assist you with this today.

Has the truck been driving normal? Or has it started to run rough? If it still runs good then I bet you are due for this update, GM has released an updated module software to take care of this code when it is on intermittently. The ECM needs to be reprogrammed, which can be done at any local GM repair center. I am going to attach a copy of the GM bulletin below for reference. Let me know if you have any questions about it :)

it stats and make a loud sound for like 10 secons then it sound ok! but the pcm set only the po411 3 times like it had 3 codes but its the sameone. my scannersugest to replace some solenoid what do u know about that? cause its not suggesting any update

Okay that is good to know, is it like a grinding/bearing noise or a popping noise? It is possible it is either the AIR control solenoid or the AIR pump assembly

can u tell me how to check them and where they are please

The pump should be mounted below the intake along the frame, there is no actual test for it other than to unhook the hoses and listen to the output of the pump. The solenoid is inline with the pump tubes, it is tested via commanding on/off with a scantool
