If you damaged the MAF sensor I would think it would still throw the codes once you went back to the stock system.
Hey! That thread was very helpful, I will have to clean out the MAF once the weather gets a little nicer. If I clean out everything and it is still a no-go, should I try a differnet brand or CAI?Mid_West said:Try the checks mentioned here:
And yes, if you stepped on the brake pedal a few times you probably drained all the juice out of the system and reset the ECU. You can do this either by unhooking the neg battery terminal and waiting 10 - 15 minutes, or unplug the neg terminal and pump the brakes (no waiting).
Heh, good ole retail return policy :3_winkthu Anyways, yes please let me know how you fare with that.PANAXRX said:Ok, well that is my thread and I am still throwing a CEL. Im going to attempt to get a MAF sensor from Advance Auto Parts (130 bucks) and see if replacing it doesnt clear it up (if it does great if not im takin the thing back lol).
How did it turn out?Alise said:My husband installed my AEM CAI on Tuesday and it just threw the CEL. He did notice one of the clamps was loose so he just tightened it and is now on a test drive.
