There are six wires leading to the MAF sensor on my 2000 Ford Taurus.Two of them are thicker, the Red and the Black. Are these considered as the leads or lead wires? The sensor is located immediatly in front of the throttle body.

    Why are you messing with this? Messing with these wires can lead into some serious problems If you are not sure what you are doing. You can blow the ECM if you cross the wrong wires or put voltage to the wrong wire. Let me know I can help. Randy

MAF/AIT Sensor


I am tempted to think that you are considering relocating the IAT. Not sure for a 2008 model but if you have brown and white/pink, then they would be pins 1 & 6 for the IAT. To confirm, pin2 would be IGN B+12, pin3 is ground, 4 & 5 would be the MAF.

Hope you can wing it from this. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a ford taurus 02' diagnostic code p0102..wat s wrong

P0102 OBD-II Trouble Code - Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit Low Input

What does that mean?
Basically this means that there is a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit. A more technical description would be that the MAF circuit had lower than expected voltage (air flow). Other MAF sensor circuit DTC trouble codes are P0100, P0101, P0103, and P0104.

You will likely not notice any serious drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a general decrease in power or sluggishness.

A code P0102 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 may be dirty or otherwise contaminated (Note: if you use a reusable oiled air filter, be careful not to apply too much oil or that can contaminate the MAF).
* The MAF sensor may be faulty
* The vehicle computer may be faulty (very rare)

Possible Solutions
The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back. Then start with the cheapest, easiest repair procedures:
* Verify that the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
* Inspect for any air leaks near the MAF sensor.
* Take the MAF out and clean it using a spray cleaner such as brake cleaner or electrical contact cleaner. Be gentle with the sensor.
* Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information)
* Replace the MAF sensor.

Hope help with this (remember rated this post).

1996 Ford Taurus Chugging MAF

Did you buy a Ford MAF sensor? There are some brands that are not reliable or accurate. Buy a Ford MAF sensor, if your mechanic has decided that the MAF is faulty. You may have a leaking fuel injector, bad coolant temp sensor,bad oxygen sensor,dirty air filter, clogged exhaust system.
