Refer to Engine Controls Schematics MAF, Secondary Air Injection Pump Bypass Solenoid, IAC and Secondary AIR Pump . Circuit Description The AIR pump is used on this 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 solenoid valve control circuit, which energizes the AIR solenoid valve. The AIR solenoid valve opens allowing manifold vacuum to open the AIR control valves. The PCM enables both control circuits when AIR system operation is desired. When the AIR system is active, the AIR pump forces fresh air into the exhaust stream in order to accelerate catalyst operation. The AIR control valves replace the conventional check valves. When the AIR system is inactive, the AIR control valves prevent air flow in either direction. DTC P0412 applies to the AIR solenoid control circuit. DTC P0418 applies to the AIR pump relay control circuit. DTC P0410 sets if an air flow problem is detected. The PCM will run two tests using the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) voltage to diagnose the AIR system. Both tests have two parts. The passive test is performed during regular AIR pump operation. The passive test consists of the following: Passive Test Part 1 When the AIR system is enabled, the PCM monitors the HO2S voltage. If the HO2S voltage goes below a threshold, the PCM interprets this as an indication that the AIR system is operational. Passive Test Part 2 When the AIR system is disabled, the PCM monitors the HO2S voltage. The HO2S voltage should increase above a threshold and switch normally. If both of these tests indicate a pass, no further action is taken. If one of the above tests failed or is inconclusive, the diagnostic will proceed to test two. The active test is performed specifically for diagnostic purposes. Test two consists of the following: Active Test Part 1 During this test the PCM turns the AIR system on during closed loop operation. When the AIR system is activated, the PCM monitors the HO2S voltage. If the AIR system is operating properly, the HO2S voltage should go below a predetermined threshold. Active Test Part 2 The PCM turns the AIR system off. The HO2S voltage should return to above a rich threshold.

Slide the cold air tube intake tube from underneath the vehicle into the hole in the inner fender, then line up the bracket with the ABS bolts, and tighten with the nut remove. 25. Slide the reducer onto the cold air intake tube. 26. Install the Bomz Filtercharger onto the cold air intake tube and secure with clamp. 27. Reverse the removal process for the plastic wheelhouse valance and air duct with the stock push clips. 28. Reconnect the mass air sensor electrical connection. 29. Reconnect the negative battery cable and double check to make sure everything is tight before starting the vehicle. Resetting the ECU This is to be completed at your own risk. This procedure will reset the computer so that it may “learn” of your new intake. We are not to be held liable for any mishaps that you may occur while completing this process. • • Disconnect the Negative battery cable for 5 minutes. Reconnect the battery cable and false panel cover.

REMOVAL 1. Remove the covers over the heating/air-conditioning system, battery and fluid tank. Disconnect and remove the battery. 2. Remove the refrigerant by suction using the service unit. 3. Detach the air-conditioning lines at the expansion valve. Immediately close connections and lines with plugs so that they are air-tight. 4. Remove steering wheel and loosen steering column panel. Comply with safety regulations when handling airbag units (see SAFETY REGULATIONS FOR VEHICLES WITH AIRBAG AND BELT TENSIONER ). 5. Undo the central screw (clamp) on the steering column switch from below and pull it forwards slightly. Remove the cover at the top and disconnect the electrical plug connections. Remove the steering column switch.

WARNING: Always wear safety glasses when repairing an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) vehicle and when handling an air bag module. This will reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment. WARNING: Carry a live air bag module with the air bag and trim cover pointed away from your body. This will reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment. WARNING: Do not set a live air bag module down with the trim cover face down. This will reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment. WARNING: After deployment, the air bag surface can contain deposits of sodium hydroxide, a product of the gas generant combustion that is irritating to the skin. Wash your hands with soap and water afterwards. WARNING: Never probe the connectors on the air bag module. Doing so can result in air bag deployment, which can result in personal injury. WARNING: Air bag modules with discolored or damaged trim covers must be installed new, not repainted. WARNING: Vehicle sensor orientation is critical for correct system operation. If a vehicle equipped with an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) is involved in a collision, inspect the sensor mounting bracket and wiring pigtail for deformation. Replace and properly position the sensor or any other damaged supplemental restraint system (SRS) components whether or not the air bag is deployed. WARNING: To avoid accidental deployment and possible personal injury, the backup power supply must be depleted before repairing or replacing any front or side air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) components and before servicing, replacing, adjusting or striking components near the front or side air bag sensors, such as doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood latches. Please refer to the appropriate vehicle shop manual to determine location of the front air bag sensors. The side air bag sensors are located at or near the base of the B-pillar. To deplete the backup power supply energy, disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least one minute. Be sure to disconnect auxiliary batteries and power supplies (if equipped). NOTE: Repair is made by installing a new part only. If the new part does not correct the condition, install the original part and perform the diagnostic procedure again. 1. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301) and wait at least one minute. For additional information, refer to Section 414-01. 2. Remove the driver air bag module. For additional information, refer to Module — Driver Air Bag in this section. 3. NOTE: Make sure the wheels (1007) are in the straight-ahead position. Remove the steering wheel (3600). For additional information, refer to Section 211-04. 4. Apply two strips of masking tape across the air bag sliding contact (14A664) to prevent accidental rotation when the air bag sliding contact is removed. 5. Place the steering column in the full down tilt position, then remove the tilt wheel handle and shank (3F609). 6. Remove the lower steering column cover. 1. Remove the two bolts. 2. Position the parking brake release aside. 3. Remove the lower steering column cover.
