CEL AND DTC CODES POINT TO SECONDARY AIR PUMP?

2006 Subaru WRX • 92,000 miles

I just recently threw a CEL, luckily my roommate bought a OBDII tester and it came back with the following codes: 2444, 2443, 2432, and 1410. All the research I've done on the internet points to problems with the secondary air pump or related systems, however I'm not sure where to start. Some have suggested taking it to a mechanic, but being a do-it-yourself kind of guy I'd rather pinpoint the problem and fix it myself. Having worked with only a N/A 94 and 02 Honda Civic in the past, this turbo'd Subaru is new to me. Thanks for your time.

DTC P1410: SECONDARY AIR INJECTION SYSTEM SWITCHING VALVE STUCK OPEN

DTC DETECTING CONDITION: ? Immediately at fault recognition
? GENERAL DESCRIPTION < Ref. To DTC P1410 SECONDARY AIR INJECTION SYSTEM SWITCHING VALVE STUCK OPEN, Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Detecting Criteria.>
CAUTION: After repair or replacement of faulty parts, conduct Clear Memory Mode < Ref. To OPERATION, Clear Memory Mode.> And Inspection
Mode < Ref. To PROCEDURE, Inspection Mode.>

DTC P1410 DIAGNOSIS PROCEDURE
Step
1 CHECK SECONDARY AIR COMBI VALVE.
Check
Yes
No
Replace the secondary air combi valve which has air
leakage. < Ref. To SECONDARY AIR
COMBI VALVE. >
A temporary poor contact occurs.
Check for poor contact of
connector.
1.
Remove the secondary air combi valve.
Blow air through inlet port of secondary air
combi valve and check the pipe connection for air leakage.
Is there air leakage from
pipe connection?
2.

DTC P2432 DIAGNOSIS PROCEDURE
Step
1 CHECK HARNESS BETWEEN ECM AND
SECONDARY AIR COMBI VALVE LH CONNECTOR.
Check
Yes
No
1.
Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
Disconnect the connector from ECM and secondary
air combi valve LH. Measure the resistance of
harness between ECM and secondary air combi valve
LH connector terminal.
2.
3.
Is the resistance
less than 1?
Repair the open circuit in harness between ECM and
secondary air combi valve LH connector terminal.
Go to step 2.

2 CHECK POWER SUPPLY TO
SECONDARY AIR PUMP.

A temporary poor contact
occurs. Check for poor contact
of connector.
Is the voltage more than 10 V?
1.
Turn the ignition switch to ON (engine

My best recommendation is to buy a Chilton's or Haynes manual and use it while going through the procedures outlined above.
