DTC detecting condition

Possible cause

P0101 MAF SEN/CIRCUIT-B1 (Mass or volume air flow “A” circuit range/performance) An excessively high voltage from the mass air flow sensor is sent to ECM.
  • Harness or connectors (Mass air flow sensor circuit is open or shorted.)
  • Mass air flow sensor
  • Sensor power supply 2 circuit
P0102 MAF SEN/CIRCUIT-B1 (Mass or volume air flow “A” circuit low input) An excessively low voltage from the mass air flow sensor is sent to ECM.
  • Harness or connectors (Mass air flow sensor circuit is open or shorted.)
  • Intake air leaks
  • Mass air flow sensor
  • Sensor power supply 2 circuit
P0103 MAF SEN/CIRCUIT-B1 (Mass or volume air flow “A” circuit high input) An excessively high voltage from the mass air flow sensor is sent to ECM.
  • Harness or connectors (Mass air flow sensor circuit is open or shorted.)
  • Mass air flow sensor
  • Sensor power supply 2 circuit

Diagnosis Procedure

1.INSPECTION START

Confirm the detected DTC.

Which DTC is detected? P0102 >> GO TO 2.

P0101 and P0103>>GO TO 3.

2.CHECK INTAKE SYSTEM

Check the following for connection.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 3.

NO >> Reconnect or replace error-detected parts.

3.CHECK MASS AIR FLOW (MAF) SENSOR POWER SUPPLY

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF
  2. Disconnect MAF sensor harness connector.
  3. Turn ignition switch ON.
  4. Check the voltage between MAF sensor harness connector and ground.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 4.

NO >> GO TO 7.

4.CHECK MAF SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect ECM harness connector.
  3. Check the continuity between MAF sensor harness connector and ECM harness connector.


  1. Also check harness for short to power.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 5.

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts.

5.CHECK MAF SENSOR INPUT SIGNAL CIRCUIT

  1. Check the continuity between MAF sensor harness connector and ECM harness connector.


  1. Also check harness for short to ground and short to power.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 6.

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts

6.CHECK MAF SENSOR

Check the MAF sensor. Refer to EC-188, "Component Inspection (MAF Sensor)".

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Check intermittent incident. Refer to GI-39, "Intermittent Incident".

NO >> Replace MAF sensor (with intake air temperature sensor). Refer to EM-25, "Exploded View".

7.CHECK MAF SENSOR POWER CIRCUIT
