Moost likely cause is the air pump output hose is broke near the back of the motor.

Easy DIY repair, maybe just a screw drive to pry a hose clamp midway on the pipe from a bracket. No tools needed, just finger for either end of pipe.

In the short term duct tape can be used to repair the hose. Best to remove and tape, the reinstall. The hose is a dealer item, online price is about $55-$60 as I recall, list price is like $85?

Tape will hold for a while and code will likely clear itself after 20 starts or so once the pipe is replaced or repaired.

I may have my old pipe still laying around and can probably find the part number as well.

Black hard plastic corrugated pipe from air pump near radiator that is routed back toward the driver side firewall, kind of near the brake master cylinder.

Default secondary air pump

pump itself could be bad or air leakage somewhere's. Double check hose connections, you have to hear the little plastic thingy snap when you put them back on or it's not a good connection. If it's an old car check your Cambi valve for blockage also. Good luck man...........and welcome to newbeelte.org here is a picture of what to look for i believe this is the intake hose

I had this exact same code and found that my hose was cracked. I used black electrical tape on it. Has been on now for over 15,000 miles and still holding strong.

Step one, diagnose it. Reading a fault code is only the beginning.

16795/P0411/001041 - Ross-Tech Wiki

Have you done an Output Test to verify the ECM can operate the Sec Air Inj relay and that the pump comes on? Could the Kombi valve be clogged up with carbon? Bad vacuum line?

While I've seen those charge pipes as shown in the post above go bad, it isn't the most common problem IMHO.

We can all spout out suggestions based on a single fault code, but the correct answer really depends on what the actual failure is.

On mine, that I taped with electrical tape, was the end also it was cracked and while trying to fix it it snapped off completely. I then, just like I stated, just taped it and it has been going strong for over 15,000 miles with no codes and no problems. I still need to replace the part to make sure it is fixed correctly but I just keep forgetting about it as it giving me no issues.

Well I'm not too much into helping folks on parts I mostly help on repairs, but here go's;

I think this is the input hose 06A131372, and the out 1C0131126 you might consider patching or fixing those hoses you have now once you find out how much $$ these are, even online..LOL I think they run about $50. FIY you can also just use regular 3/4 heater hose with hose clamps and use the original end piece. I have never done it but read a thread around here about somebody doing that. Good luck to ya.

Is there a computer that we bug owners can buy to tell us the codes? Or do we have to take our bugs to a shop every time the check engine light comes on?

You can spend anywhere from $25 to $400 very easily.

I would recommend not going much above $100, others will tell you differently.

You can also go to Auto Zone, Advance, Pep Boys, O'Rielly and you can usually borrow a reader.

If you have an Android phone or tablet, the Torque Pro app for $5 along with the ELM327 Bluetooth adapter from Amazon for $15 is a good start.

My favorite stand along generic scan tool is the Launch CReader VI, you can find it for as cheap as about $84 from Asia on ebay, this is where I purchased mine. Otherwise this same tool can cost you as much as $120 from Amazon or other places here in the US. Make sure you get the CReader VI not the cheaper and older CReader V if this is the way you choose to go.

LOL the joke is on the voters--not in Kalifornia--the very busy full time legislature has deemed it fit to pass another law restricting the freedoms of its citizens in the realm...the Auto Zones et al are forbidden to loan out the diagnostic computers to the masses...buwahahahaaaa tyranny strikes again!

I use this one and it has been good for most things:

http://www.amazon.com/MaxScan-Scanne...2/dp/B004B0OXL

It gives more descriptive Volkswagen specific codes.

Ross Tech is the best, but it will set you back around $300 for the top of the line software. It pretty much does everything the dealers system does.
