If you didn’t already erase the code, try that and see if the code comes back. If it does, the remaining causes of code P0411 include air lines that are faulty, the air injection system has excessive carbon buildup and/or there is an open or short in the wiring harness for the air injection system. A real time scanner can be employed to pinpoint the issue.
