Water may be drawn into the secondary air injection (AIR) pump causing the pump to fail and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us there is a kit available from General Motors to relocate the air intake for the pump which should prevent future damage from water intrusion.

I have replace the air pump on my 2001 cadillac eldo, the problem is it keeps running while car is on and also when the ignition is off, making the motor burn up. What is causing the pump to keep running while ignition is off?

Pump went out while driving during average rain storms shortly after purchasing vehicle with 17,000 mi. Dealer replaced under warranty. Went out again shortly after rain storms. Warranty expired, so replaced pump myself. Went out again, so i removed pump, connected hoses together, now ck. engine light comes on periodicly,will live with it for now. Better than buying another pump for nothing. GM is aware of the problem, so why not a recall?
