Afternoon all,

I'm attempting to get all known outstanding issues sorted on my car before I book it in with 9e (to hopefully take some sting out!) I have had a P4018 error code logged since buying the car which points to the secondary air pump.

Thanks to a suggestion on here from a member I decided to check the relay & fuse in the back:

Worryingly there doesn't appear to be one in there (for block 10). I also noticed the fuse is a 50amp whereas i'm sure its supposed to be a 40? Can someone clear this up for me?
 
SAI (left hand corner):

No SAI:

If you defiantly have a SAI pump, then #10 is the relay position.
 
Sorry I should have mentioned its an 02 turbo
 
But does it have SAI? (they are the same pumps)

Maxi fuse is 40A (orange)
 
I believe so, I'm fairly certain I located it next to the oil cap on the drivers side of the engine bay
 
Thanks for the help GT4, new relay and 40A fuse in place, codes gone and SAI working fine
 
So why did someone nick it :dont know:
 
Beats me! There was also a 50A fuse in place so I assume at some point it was blowing fuses. Time will tell I guess!
 
Thread resurrection!!

Hi mate, did you ever get to the bottom of why somebody removed it??
Or why someone would??
And what were your 'symptoms' I appreciate you had the error code but was there anything physical?

Thanks

Tony
