    Have a look at this post for the effects it might have.

    I believe the secondary air inlet system is to assist in emmission control when you start up from cold.

    Its most likely goosed if no flow detected, could have become unplugged unlikely but possible or the wiring has got damaged, the rivet mod quietens it down sometimes, but on mine a pipe from the airbox had split & it had filled up with rain water over time & it was burnt out big time & yes Ross is correct it helps the cat to get working quicker.

    mine threw up a code for this pump, its not the same as what matty is getting, but seems similar, could someone just clarify what i should be looking at, the pump itself or its relay, if the relay where is it located please?
