Hello , my name isXXXXX you for choosing justanswer.com.

Those codes are all to do with the secondary air injection and that problem must be fixed first in order to diagnose a no power condition.

Also those code related failures can cause the CAT convertor to plug.

could you please send me a diagram. also do you think this is something toyota would have to fix or fairly easy for an individual?
Expert:  JHoop replied 6 years ago.
I can send you the repair charts. A factory scanner is what is needed to fix this. ALL those codes are the same.
