    faulty sensor was advised changed that and its still not working

    was advised if it wasnt the sensor it could be the wiring

    once this is fixed the car is gone its been nothing but a money pit and i will definitely not be getting another

    what were the codes that were read?

    what engine do you have?

    what is the mileage?

    What year is your car?

    The more information you can give us the more likely we will try and help, we cannot read your mind!

    Default

    Once a sensor has been replaced the EMS should realise the fault has been rectified
    However, it can remain logged and live for up to 10 engine starts
    It can help to take they key out, walk round the car, then restart
    I find this is usually enough time for the EMS to reset
    Another is to disconnect the MAF, start the engine, switch the engine off, reconnect the MAF, take the key out, lock the car, wait 10 minutes, and then restart
