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.

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. Diagnostic Trouble Codes for OBD II
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.
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.
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.

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.
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
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
If the M.A.F. sensor is disconnected it can't help the driveability of the vehicle in question. Do you get a service engine soon light with a code to this effect? I would change it and hook it up and see what happens.

There are a lot of other qualified repair shop's besides the Dealer .
P1128 is a lean condition, try cleaning the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. You can buy a can of MAF cleaner at most auto parts store like Auto Zone, and they will have the instructions for you to remove the MAF. Try cleaning it first and then disconnect the battery, just make sure the radio is off first before you disconnect the battery. If the DTC 1128 is still there, the MAF may be bad and needs to be replaced but before you replace the MAF. Check with the Hyundai dealer for any TSB on that code. Good luck and keep me posted. The dealer want $270.00 for the MAF sensor!!
ouch!! scouted around...NAPA has them for $105.00. Most local
salvage yard for $35.00 - $75.00
I have a 2000 Passat (1.8T), and I recently had this code (P0411). First thing I did was to clean the mass airflow sensor (MAF) and reset the code by disconnecting the battery. Unfortunately, the code came back. It also came back with P1426. It ended up being the purge valve ($60 at ECSTuning, $140 at the dealer...I went with ECSTuning). Before you drop money on the part, inspect all of the hoses to ensure they are not cracked or torn.
