Secondary air injection problems 2000 auto V6

Hello, I recently got a fault code for a smog check on my 2000 V6 auto Mustang. The fault code (unavailable right now) was indicating that the 2nd Air Injection was receiving Low Voltage? Does that indicate a bad sensor/computer part other than a piece of the 2nd Air injection system as a whole without question, or do I bite the bullet and put the car in the hands of the nearest dealership and have them rework the car until it passes?

Its "Engine Maintentance Required" light has been on since 2001 (it is now burnt out due to the same 2nd air injection sensor problem, which does no obvious performance damage to the handling/ everyday usage) for this same problem, and it has become a serious annoyance when dealing with the DMV and mechanics who have never seen a problem with the 2nd air injection system before.

It's the electric air pump, located onder the air filter on the other side, behind the front wheel.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

With that knowledge then, do I replace it or can it be fixed? How much are we talking?

You can have it checked out, but more than likely, it will need to be replaced. There may be a TSA on it . . .
