If the pump freezes up it will burn up the belt. If the belt is running other accessories, you will lose those also.

Thanks for the info. Pump is electric so no belt. Friend bringing volt meter to test volts. How do you know if relay is bad?

Easiest way to find out is tosswitch it with a known working relay. If the air pump comes on then you know it's a bad relay.

The secondary air injection system is purely emissions related. It will not affect the performance of the vehicle. It also only operates at a cold start up for 1 minute to heat up the catalytic converters so they will work more efficiently.
