    Welp, I went to start my truck today and I got a check engine light. Code p1442 secondary air injection switching valve no 2 bank 1 stuck closed. Anyone have experience with this code before or what may need to be replaced?

    It’s total normal. Next time you start your truck listen for a Whistle, last about 30 seconds and then shuts off. Should be coming from the intake.

    mine is on its way out and my buddy’s (sequoia 2007) had his go out and we did the bypass kit on it. He drove with the CEL for almost a year before fixing it. Most people on here also run the bypass kit. Link below.

    Wondering if I need it to pass emissions? Would love to do a quick bypass kit too. I technically don’t have emissions in my county but If I was to, would this effect it. Will the bypass kit take away the check engine light?

    Edit- looked at the website. I’ll read more and ask more questions later. Thanks again @jerryallday!

    Maybe I should ask, what is the benefit of running the bypass kit instead of fixing the issue? That seems like an expensive bypass kit.

    I think it comes down to time and money. My buddy passed smog in California no problem and CEL went away.

    Interesting. I may have a shop quote the fix. And then I’ll compare it to the bypass kit. Obviously since you said your buddy had no issues driving it, I think I’m going to do the same but I’m gonna fix it ASAP. Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it! I also didn’t happen to see you were in California.

    Our sequioa (also 4.7L) has the other code for stuck open. Local mechanics wanted close to $1700.

    Mom, and pop took it to Bruce. I suggested the bypass the first time it popped codes.

    Popped codes for the second time about 3 months ago. They started asking me about the bypass. :rofl:

    From readings, the bypass is a permanent ‘fix’ that bypasses the OEM dumb control. Going back with a new OEM assy of the same design will result in the same problem until it is ‘bypassed’.

    Do the bypass, if you think the bypass is expensive wait for the quote to fix your problem.
    There is also a even cheaper kit, made by a member on T4r.org username Slyfox
    Look him up and send a email, under 60$ for a bypass with no block off plates

    Okay so a little update. Decided to get a bunch of other things fixed along with whatever is associated with the check engine light. Truck is currently being worked on. If I get the same code after this I am going to pick up that delete kit. Thanks for all of your advice, I really appreciate it!

    @2006Tundra I beleive that is what others recommended. If something else happens with this code that is what I will use.

    just got done looking at your truck with the new paint job. Spent the last hour researching how much it would cost to paint mine the same Red color. Yours looks so amazing!

    Keep us updated on your situation.

    Thank you very much. I'm really happy how the truck came out. Just keep in mind that supposedly any red paint jobs are going to be more expensive because the pigments used to make red are the more expensive. It cost me 5k to paint my entire truck with some minor dents fixed. My paint guy said if my truck was any other color, it would have been about 3-4K. I was lucky that my insurance took care of the paint job.

    For sure. Red is the best color in vehicles if it’s dark deep shiny red. Not the fire engine red. Yours is exactly the color I’d like to paint mine. Salsa red?
