probably best to remove the negative batt cable for about 5 to 10mins and then hook it back up.

If I am correct on this one, either something is loose, not connected or the MAF needs a reset by disconnecting the neg bat term to reset itself.

that's a bummer.
Should have left the CAI on, no?
they shouldn't void the warranty because of that.
part was not carb approved, they can void the warranty if they want :)

More than just the MAF control idle speed. TPS, ISC (Idle Speed Control) just to name a few. The MAF is the most expensive out of them though...

I can see your point but no they can't, sorry I have already talked to my dealer about what they can do to the warranty if they find a mod....

Even if he goes to one that IS NOT mod friendly they still can't void a warranty over a stupid CAI.

yes they can... they can simply say that he abuses his car, because a cold air intake means he is a racer!!!!!!!

and if you read your owners manual it specifcly says, exhuast systems and intakes void your warranty

magnuson-moss only states that they cannot void your warranty UNLESS the manufacture states it....

if people would just read their [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]g owners manual....


go read it for yourself, i think it is page 8 or 12 in the warranty guide

well I really don't care about what owners manual says.... Dan Irving at my dealer which is like 3 steps down from owner say that they cannot void the warranty over something like... atleast not the whole warranty just if the TPS goes out or soemthing like that they don't have to honor it.

from my understanding... the warranty cannot be voided b/c of simple mods... swapping engines and trannys are not simple.. cai, exhaust.. etc.. are simple... if your cat goes out, and you have an aftermarket exhaust.. it must be proven, 100% that it was the exhaust that caused it for them to deny warranty coverage
