those are some odd codes, kind of. I doubt that they are related at all. To me the secondary air flow codes are due to the secondary air pump either malfunctioning or a deteriorated hose that is leaking. Have you been hearing any strange noises? Mostly at first start up? A whining or loud howling noise, usually at cold start, is indicative of a malfunctioning air pump. It is possible that the pump is no longer working or barely at all. Most likely one of those codes are older than the other and was stored in memory. The VANOS code sounds to me like there might be a mechanical problem with the vanos unit. I think there might have been some recall on that. I can't remember, that would be something to check with your favorite dealer on. It could be an actuator problem. If possible, if your code puller will tell you, find out the frequency of the codes and last occurrance. If one was just a one-time occurence then I would clear it and see if it happens again. Of course, if you have any type of warranty (factory or aftermarket) then i would take the car in. If checking this stuff out is something you would want to do yourself, you can send me an email or pm me and I'll help you check it out the best I can via email, unless you are anywhere near where I am.
