    Is it ok to drive with this code? Need to know ASAP

    Got in the car to go to work like any other day and Im half way down the driveway when I see the check engine light, and the cruise light is flashing? First time anythings gone wrong with the car...

    Luckily I have an accessport and the codes are:

    P2442 Secondary air injection system switching valve stuck open (bank 2)
    P1410 Secondary air injection system switching valve stuck open

    I kinda need to go to work but its ok if Im a little late, so I figured someone would be on and would know if its at least ok to drive to work now and to the shop later

    Thanks!

    That's for your air pump for the emissions. It's fine to drive with as it's only used as a means to warm up the exhaust fumes after startup. It's largely not even used during operation.
