    Question P2442 Code - Ckeck Engin Light, VSC, and 4L light blinking

    I own a 2007 and am having issues with a P2442 code. The dealer told me the secondary air injection pump, and valves need replaced. The quoted price is over $2000.00. With a quote price like that I decided to check into this issue and found out a lot of information about that code on this forum and others.
    After researching the problem I decided to fix the problem myself. I took the injection pump out, cleaned and inspected it. Then hooked it up to my battery and verified it worked ok. I also took the valves out and cleaned them and verified the solenoids worked.
    I feel confident I may have fixed the problem but I don't own a scanner. I went to Auto Zone / Genuine Auto Parts store and barrowed there scanners but there scanners will not clear the code.
    I'm interested in possible purchasing a scanner to clean this fault but I'm not sure what scanner to buy. Does anyone know of a reasonable price scanner which will clean the code listed above? Better yet, I would rather save the money if someone could provide me some information on how to clear this code without taking it back to the dealer or purchasing a scanner.

    The P2442 code is "Secondary Air Injection System Switching Valve Stuck Open Bank 2". If the valve is now working correctly the code should clear itself after several "drive cycles".
    The chances that it will stay working for very long are slim to none. I suggest you start by reading this thread.
