03 A4 1.8T DTC P1297

I have a P1297 (17705) code that I can't get figured out. It went to the dealer and $150 later they say it needs a MAF. I put the MAF on, new fuel pump, plugs, coilpacks, dipstick and tube, fixed all vacuum leaks i found. Still has a P1297! Also I get all the misfire codes after the P1297 pops up. It runs like **** at idle, but seems fine driving it.

Figuring out what to fix next on 2005 caddy dhs


Please go to the link provided and just input the code for definition and possible causes. Keep in mind a fault code doesn't mean a particular part is defective, it only indicates that a problem in that circuit or the signal given is not correct for the values seen by other sensors.

My 2003 Saturn L300 engine code P1780 wont run when it get hot?


#PIP3922: Repeat DTC P0606 And P1780 Setting - keywords 00 01 02 03 04 05 DTC JB L81 MAF MIL P0606 P1780 reducedpwrmde reman saturn - (Sep 26, 2006)

Subject: Repeat DTC P0606 and P1780 Setting

Models: 2000-2005 Saturn L series with L81 V6 The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
Condition/Concern:
A technician may find codes P0606 and P1780 setting. They may state that they are not able to duplicate the concern. Tech may state that when the customer is driving they report a sudden loss of power, then no throttle response, and the warning indicators come on. Tech may also state that the ECM and MAF were replaced with no change.
Recommendation/Instructions:
These codes will set if the wrong MAF was installed on the vehicle previously. This being an intermittent code the MAF may work without any concerns initially. The retailer may not be aware of 2 different part number MAF's for 2000-05 L series with L81. Compounding this is the reman sticker may fall off and GM does not cross reference the Bosch part number to theirs. Any time these codes are setting have technician verify the correct MAF is installed using the reference below
The part numbers are:
2000-03 90528435 Last 3 of Bosch # 184 (important because the reman sticker may be missing)
2004-05 24437651 Last 3 of Bosch # 087 (important because the reman sticker may be missing)
Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a ""do-it-yourselfer"". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.

I put fuel pump ,crank sensor, fuel filter, tune up and I still do the same start and shut off


Does it have a SECURITY system in it ?
Is the SECURITY Light on or Flashing Sparatickly ?
Any Trouble codes ?
POSSIBLE - * MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow Sensor) has gone BAD causing car to start then shut back off . * Security has kicked in ( Due to changing stereo system or battery went dead or didn't have one on it for a little while .
FIXES - *Replace Mass Air Flow Sensor (in between the throttle and the air filter box) . * Take to Dealer and have computer Flashed/Reset if SECURITY is at Fault . I recommend the MAF sensor

Town and country slow to start


The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

A common problem with Ford products built in the 1980s is the ignition module mounted on the distributor.
You will need to figure out if it is a fuel problem or ignition problem to proceed.

P1433 on 03 jetta vr6 24 valve bdf engine code new maf??


It probably the oil in the Filter that mosr cold air intake system use such as K & N. These type of filters use oil in the filter & is coating the sensitve parts inside the MAF. I had the same problem with my 2001 F150 & went back to paper filters, cleaned the MAF, and never had the problem again.

Question about a P0191 DTC on a 2004 Ford Explorer XLT


What repairs can fix the P0191 code?

  • Replacing fuel filter(s) or fuel pump
  • Replacing the fuel pressure regulator
  • Repairing any broken, frayed, or shorted wires that lead to the fuel pressure sensor
  • Repairing corroded connector to the fuel pressure sensor
  • Replacing fuel pressure sensor
  • Repairing any vacuum leaks in the engine

    Many times this error will also occur if there already exists fuel/air problems, like your previous code 2106 means there are one or more components in your car's intake/exhaus/air/injection systems that is having serious problems

1999 Chevy G-30 utility van code p-0174 , cleaned then replaced MAFcleared code, back on 50 miles later, found vacum leak hose off vac. ball, code cleard 50 miles light back on,


what size engine do you have in the g-30 van. is it the plastic plenum. if it is there are rubber o-ring seals that go bad all the time and will cause the p0171,p0174,p0172,p0175 these are all lean codes also check for fuel pressure to make sure it is up to specs.
have you changed your fuel filter lately this can effect fuel trims.

Lexus is300 wont revv past 3000rpms has code p0103


P0103 OBD-II - Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit High Input
This DTC means that there is a problem with the Mass Air Flow High (MAF) sensor or circuit. A more technical description would be that the MAF circuit had higher than expected voltage (air flow). Other MAF sensor circuit DTC trouble codes are P0100, P0101, P0102, and P0104.

A code P0103 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
- The MAF may be disconnected, or a wiring connection may be bad
- The MAF sensor may be damaged
- The vehicle computer may be faulty (very rare)

Feel free to contact us in this DTC P0103 code link, if you need additional details.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.
