Thank you Eninty and PeterM1. Yes, the fault switched and it appears that the exhaust-side solenoid has gone bad. I took the exhaust-side solenoid off my car and put into my friend's car (same car and model year), and the error code did not return after driving about 10 miles. So, I ordered a new one for my friend and we await delivery. They are actually not cheap, by our standards anyway.

Sorry OP, did not mean to hijak your original post.
