SOURCE: Where is the MAF Sensor and the IAT Sensor on my 99 dodge avenger

IAT is located beside the throttle. This engine does not have a mass air flow sensor the computer uses the inputs from the IAT, MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor and the RPM reading to determine what the air flow reading would be.

have the MAF sensor circuit checked, make sure all wirings inside and out aren't damaged. This may be a cicuit issue if you have replaced the sensor with a new one. Otherwise the new sensor itself may be defective, or ECU malf. Hopefully this helps!!

SOURCE: MAF circuit malfunction, replaced the MAF and

P0100 OBD-II Trouble Code

Technical Description

Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit Malfunction

Basically this means that there's a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit.

You will likely not notice any serious driving problems, but there may be symptoms like a general decrease in power or sluggishness.
Causes

A code P0100 may mean one or more of the following:

* The MAF may be disconnected, or a wiring connection may be bad.
* The MAF sensor may be faulty.

Possible Solutions

Use an OBD II Reader (or go tou your local parts store and they will for free) and reset the code and see if it comes back.
Then start with the cheapest, easiest repair procedures:

* Check the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring/harness is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
* Unplug and reconnect the MAF wiring harness a few times to clear the contacts.
* Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information).
* Replace the MAF sensor.

Basically this means that there is a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit. Other MAF sensor circuit DTC trouble codes are P0101, P0102, P0103,PO104.You may not notice any serious drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a general decrease in power or sluggishness.
A code P0100 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 hot wire that is in the air flow maybe dirty
  • The MAF sensor may be faulty
you can clear the code and see if it returns if you have not tried that yet. then try the following.Verify that the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.Unplug and reconnect the MAF wiring harness.Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information). if this indicates the MAF sensor then replace it.

Why does my car throw the code P0100 and P0325? I have a 1995 Nissan 240sx. and it has a random misfire once in a while.


Hi,

Often a single issue can trigger multiple diagnostics codes, especially if the circuits are closely related.

Code P0100 = Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit malfunction

The computer has detected an issue with the MAF sensor.

- Verify the MAF sensor wiring is connected and wiring is in good condition
- Unplug and reconnect the MAF harness
- Check that voltage to the MAF sensor is within factory spec


Code P0325 = Knock Sensor # 1 Circuit malfunction

A knock sensor tells the engine computer when one or more of your engine's cylinders are "knocking", that is, exploding the air/fuel mixture in a way that delivers less power and can be damaging to the engine if prolonged. The computer uses this information to tune the engine so that it doesn't knock. If your knock sensor wasn't operating properly, so that it was always indicating a knock, the engine computer's response may have been to change the ignition timing on your engine. Knock sensors generally bolt into or thread into the engine block.

- Check condition of the knock sensor wiring.
- Test the 'Ohms' reading of your Knock Sensor (undo the connector and measure the pins) to ensure it is within spec (ask Nissan for this measurement). If out of spec, replace the knock sensor.

Cheers,
