2002 525i Codes PO 491 & 492

I have a 2002 525i and the service engine soon light is on. The code comes up as PO 491 & 492. What does this mean and how can I fix it? My registration is incomplete because I need to have it smogged and I need that light to go out. I can't get my sticker without the smog cert. and I can't drive to work without a current sticker. And I really hope it's not too expensive because I only work 1 day a week for 3 hours at minimum wage. Please tell me this is an easy fix that can be done by anyone other than taking it to a shop.

Have a look at this video, he says this is the most common problem for those error codes.
Also you have posted in the wrong sub forum, the moderators should move it for you.
