Code P2438 Chevrolet Description

The secondary air injection system aids in the reduction of hydrocarbon emissions during a cold start. The electric air pump forces fresh air into the exhaust stream in order to accelerate the catalyst operation. Secondary air injection pressure sensors, which are integral to the shutoff and check valves, are used to monitor the air flow from the secondary air injection pump. The Engine Control Module (ECM) supplies voltage to the 5 V reference circuits and provides a ground for the low reference circuits. The sensors provide a signal voltage to the ECM relative to the pressure changes within the secondary air injection system.
The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set when the ECM detects that the corresponding bank 2 secondary air injection pressure sensor signal is out of specifications.
