The sensors u had replaced will not affect the ABS brake system, while this light is on your Antilock Brake System is disabled, if u need this very important safety feature u are out of luck, have the system codes tested for the ABS and the check enhgine light, go to a VW dealer, don't waste your time on any technician who says to ignore an ABS light warning!!

Is there a check engine light on? Check for codes. If it's the mass air flow it will put out a code. Otherwise it is probably a clogged catalytic converter thats clogged. It will do the same thing. Turn your car on and check the pressure coming out of the back.

I have a 1986 gts corrolla that will not run unless air flow meter is held open


Now if your old fuel pump was loosing pressure it tends to lean out Overheating your catalytic converter and melting it so exhaust gasses can't flow To test this is easy just remove the two bolts holding it on the engine pipe Start the engine if runs fine replace cat converter

2002 Toyota Rav4....check engine light""is


Here are two of the most common causes of the check engine light.

Most common, MAF ( mass air flow ), sensor. A faulty MAF prevents the computer from determining the correct fuel/air mix ratio.

Oxygen sensor. ( front and rear, front meaning before the catalytic converter, rear meaning after the catalitic converter. The front measures the fuel/air mix being sent through the catalitic converter, the back measures the emmisions and lets the computer know if any fuel/air mix ratios need to be adjusted. Both of these can trigger the check engine light.

I hope this helps you.

there are no codes that say replace O2 sensors,or remove converter,Thats just somebody's guessing,When it says O2 sensor that tells the mechanic to look for trouble in that area,wiring or faulty readings,And there are four O2 sensors.

Mass Air Flow sensor! Just remove your air filter cover. Go to Auto Zone and purchase some solvent. Spray past the air filter and it should correct the problem. If not, replace the Mass air-flow sensor. This is commonly mistaken for an oxygen sensor. Mine did this and I followed these steps and it fixed the light. BTW, the light stayed on for 5 years before I fixed it. Never hurt anything. It's normally something to do with emissions. Dummy lights. :)
