Check engine light came on after cold air intake was put on

I put a spectre cold air intake that was made for my car the other day and I reset my ecu and already went 100miles. As soon as that happened the check engine light came ok and now I'm worried. What happened?! I need to get this problem fixed ASAP.

Pull the code, it's probably just a lean code.

Re: Check engine light came on after cold air intake was put on

You never know until you pull the codes, but my guess is one or both banks are running lean. This happens a lot with intakes. Happened to me once with my Injen SRI, but I reset the ECU and it has never come back.

Re: Check engine light came on after cold air intake was put on

The first time I tried to reset the ecu I unplugged the battery for 15min then I tried to start it with the battery unplugged, and then waited 10 more minutes. It ran a bit better then the light came on after 100miles :/ I'll try doin that one in a lil bit

Re: Check engine light came on after cold air intake was put on

Take it easy when you reset the ECU or it will throw the code.

Re: Check engine light came on after cold air intake was put on

I was taking it somewhat easy...until I raced my ex gf's element last night....probably why it threw that code :/ damn I'll reset it lol hopefully it will go away. After the first 100miles then I don't have to take it easy?

Check your maf, you can reset your ecu all you want but the code will keep appearing if you dont fix the problem.

Not necessarily. The time mine came on I was in CA on a trip, reset it there and it came back on, but once I got back home I reset it again and it has never come back since.

But yes check your MAF and connections on the tube pieces etc just to make sure.

Cleaning the MAF could help too.

Is your MAF backwards?

Re: Check engine light came on after cold air intake was put on

Okay guys I have figured it out. I took my Tib to a Advance auto parts store and they ran a diagnostic on it. It was showing a p1166 and p1167 codes, and both pertain to the MAF. So I popped the hood to discover that I incidentally put the MAF on backwards when I put the intake on, and that was not the only problem. The supplied "claps" I use that lightly only because it didnt do **** towards holding the piping together. SO I bought some new pipe clamps that get a whole hell of a lot tighter than the other one, reset the ecu again, and test fired it. Runs like new. Now just need to get a new fuel pump cause the old one is being gay -_-" anyone know where I can get a new one for cheapish?

Re: Check engine light came on after cold air intake was put on

dont do anything mentioned above if you have an 07-08.....thats just how it is theres nothing wrong with your car other than the fact they decided to put a touchy ECU in them

run it and a month before you have safety and emissions but your CAI filter on the end of your stock little 8 inch rubber pipe and the CEL will go away....then after put it back on.

Re: Check engine light came on after cold air intake was put on

ya get a hydro shield.....i just took mine off cuz snow in utah but your engine needs to get use to the new air flow cel "might" go away after a few hundred miles but dont count on it....the CEL isnt a horrible thing but its a concern because if a different code pops up you wouldnt know so if you have a code reader i would try erasing the code/ checking it weekly or monthly to be on the safe side
