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.

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.
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.
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.

2005 hyundai santa Fe sped out of control what do i do if the teck at the hyundai dont know the code numders that are comming up

Hyundai should have all kinds of tech support, so he could find the code descriptions with a little searching. Get on their case!
If the electronics are too complicated for even Hyundai techs, that puts a real question mark on all hyundais. When your only choice is the dealers, you are scr****.

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.

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.

Went to autozone because check engine light is on so they did the trouble shooting and the code was p0174 but he put it was a kia and not a suzuki and it the probable cause what...

P0174 is a "generic" code, meaning it's the same meaning for all OBD II cars (every model year '96 and later).

It is system too lean (BANK 2)

System Too Lean (Bank 2)
What does that mean?

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 2 is generally the side of the engine that doesn't have cylinder #1.

Note: This DTC is very similar to P0171, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.
FB.init("dd7d9e9681341cde77587bc6a2029f6f"); on Facebook Symptoms

You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a lack of power, detonation (spark knock), and/or a hesitation/surge on acceleration.

A code P0174 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filtersmag-glass_10x10.gif can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor.
Possible Solutions

Possible solutions include:

  • In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
  • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressuremag-glass_10x10.gif

M.A.F. sensor went bad os so i thought. disconnected it, car ran fine no problems. about a month later it starts acting up. since then there's a new fuel pump, filter, plugs, cap an rotor. as well as a new...

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.

My hyundai accent 2000 has 25,000 miles and the the check engine light has been on for over 3 months. I know the diagnostic code is P1128. I have had the car to 2 mechanics and they can not say...

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

2000 Passat DTC P0411

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.
