Code P2444 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. A pressure sensor in each bank is used to monitor the air flow from the secondary air injection pump. The Engine Control Module (ECM) supplies voltage to the 5-volt reference circuits and supplies a ground to the low reference circuits. The sensors provide a signal voltage to the ECM relative to the pressure changes within the secondary air injection system.
Ignition voltage is supplied to the secondary air injection pump and air injection shutoff/check valve relays. The ECM controls the relays by grounding the control circuits, which activates the relays. When the relay contacts close, voltage is supplied to the pump and the valves, which turns the pump on and opens the valves.
The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set when the ECM detects that average difference between the predicted system pressure and the actual system pressure is greater than or less than calibrated thresholds for greater than 8 s.
