Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to help get your problem resolved. Ask follow up questions, thanks.


Jump power to secondary air pump with connector plugged in....If it doesnt turn on then verify it has good ground and it needs to be replaced, that is odd that it turns on with 9v....But since this is a 12+ volt system that doesnt do us any good. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

were is the fuse for the air pump?
There are two fuses but if it has voltage at motor when engine is started then fuse is good......There is a 30 amp AIR PUMP fuse and a 10 amp EMISS fuse, both are under the hood. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

when this comes on is it switching the positive or negitive?


The positive, it has ground at all times.....Thats why I was saying run power to the red wire at blower, if it doesnt turn on verify black wire has good ground and replace pump. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
