Compatible with Standard Fuel & Flex Fuel vehicles.
Hewitt Tech Generation 2 Secondary Air Injection System Bypass Kit (Plug & Play)
The Hewitt Tech (HT) Gen 2 (Plug & Play) Bypass Kit comes in 1 Bank and 2 Bank variations. The Gen 2 is our most comprehensive bypass kit and for this reason is our recommended solution. It emulates the operation of the SAIS by replacing the Air Injection Drivers (AID). It enables you to clear the Check Engine Light, Limp Mode and error codes related to mechanical and electrical SAIS faults. Additionally, the SAIS system monitor will even show as complete/ready. The Gen 2 (Plug & Play) is compatible with most Toyota and Lexus vehicles model years ’07 – Current. This includes Flex Fuel Models and vehicles that have had the ECM flashed with new calibration file. This version of the Gen 2 Bypass kit offers a complete Plug & Play kit with connectors compatible with the vehicle’s factory components. It includes Block Off Plate(s) but will NOT need installation of the Starter Relay Wire. It is made with automotive grade materials and designed to blend in with the factory wiring harness. This allows for a very clean factory looking installation. Easy to follow step by step installation instructions are included with vehicle specific illustrations. The Gen 2 (Plug & Play) Bypass kit is simply the best solution for both professionals and DIY mechanics because of the ease of install and comprehensive coverage. It is also the ideal solution for anyone looking to remove the Air Pumps or Air Switching Valves to create more room in the engine bay for aftermarket modifications.
It is Important to understand that HT SAIS Bypass kits are engineered to work with Factory or OEM SAIS components. That said, aftermarket SAIS components can cause fault codes to be present after installation of the bypass kit. This typically means you will need HT Kit Addon(s) in order to clear SAIS codes that are still present.
The following are Secondary Air Injection System Trouble codes the Gen 2 Bypass Kit typically addresses*:
P1441 – Switching Valve No.2 Stuck Open Bank 1
P1442 – Switching Valve No.2 Stuck Close Bank 1
P1444 – Switching Valve No.2 Stuck Open Bank 2
P1445 – Switching Valve No.2 Stuck Close Bank 2
P2440 – Switching Valve Stuck Open Bank 1
P2441 – Switching Valve Stuck Closed Bank 1
P2442 – Switching Valve Stuck Open Bank 2
P2443 – Switching Valve Stuck Closed Bank 2
P2445 – Pump Stuck OFF Bank 1**
P2447 – Pump Stuck Off Bank 2
P0412 – SAIS Switching Valve ‘A’ Circuit Malfunction Bank 1
P0415 – SAIS Switching Valve ‘B’ Circuit Malfunction Bank 2
P0418 – SAIS Circuit/Relay ‘A’ Circuit Malfunction Bank 1
P0419 – SAIS Circuit/Relay ‘B’ Circuit Malfunction Bank 2
The following are Trouble codes NOT addressed by the Gen 2 Bypass. These will require kit addon(s) in order to clear.
Pressure Sensor Codes
P2431 – Air Flow / Pressure Sensor Circuit Range / Performance Bank1
P2432 – Air Flow / Pressure Sensor Circuit Low Bank 1
P2433 – Air Flow / Pressure Sensor Circuit High Bank 1
P2436 – Air Flow / Pressure Sensor Circuit Range / Performance Bank 2
P2437 – Air Flow / Pressure Sensor Circuit Low Bank 2
P2438 – Air Flow / Pressure Sensor Circuit High Bank 2
P106B – Pressure Sensor Correlation / Evap. Pressure Sensor
These codes typically indicate a damaged Pressure Sensor which is usually caused by an Air Switching Valve being stuck open for an extended period of time. Functioning Pressure Sensors are needed for both Gen 1 and Gen 2 Bypass kits. Compatible Pressure Sensor addon required in order to clear.

MORE ABOUT THE SAIS BYPASS KIT
The Gen 2 Bypass kit is the best solution to address or prevent Secondary Air Injection issues. Unlike the Gen 1 Bypass kits which only manipulates the operation of the SAIS, the Gen 2 Bypass kit fully emulates it. Why is this an advantage? First, the Gen 2 can cover both Mechanical and Electrical SAIS fault codes. This limits the potential need of kit addons in the future. Second, the Gen 2 is compatible with Toyota’s most recent ECM flashes and recalibrations. This includes ECM programming for Flex Fuel models. Lastly, since the Gen 2 is emulating the SAIS system this means monitors will show as ready and complete even if the entire system is removed from the vehicle. The Gen 2 allows you remove the Air Pump(s), plumbing, Air Injection control drivers – and by adding Pressure Sensors Options (PSO), you can also remove the air switching valves. For those looking for a complete SAIS delete kit, this is the way to go.
When designing the Gen 2, it was critical the bypass seamlessly integrate with factory components and blend in under the hood. As a result, all connections for Gen 2 kit were engineered to be Plug & Play. This is another major advantage over the Gen 1 units because you do not have to worry about splicing into the factory harness or running a Starter Relay Wire to the fuse box. Additionally, HT had the protective enclosure costume molded to imitate the factory Air Injection Drivers. This allows you to mount directly to existing brackets. This in combination with the Plug & Play harness makes for a very professional and factory looking installation.
The included Air Switching Valve Block-off Plates are an integral part of the bypass kit. The Block Off Plates are the only way to isolate the Air Switching Valves and protect the related Pressure Sensor(s) from damage caused by exhaust. Open Air Switching Valves and Pressure Sensors exposed to exhaust are the primary cause of Limp Mode and SAIS failure.
It is important to understand that installing a HT bypass will prevent your Air Pumps and Air Switching Valves from operating. However, it will not close the Air Switching Valves or keep them closed in the future. That said, choosing not to install the Block Off Plates leaves the SAIS vulnerable because exhaust may leak into open valves and damage the Pressure Sensors. As noted above, both Gen 1 & 2 HT bypass kits require kit addons to clear SIAS Pressure Sensor codes. Do yourself a favor, avoid future frustrations and costs; install the Block Off Plates.
