Out-of-range output signal from MAF can trigger CEL.Elweber9,
This is a common problem w/ dirty MAF;
Try cleaning the MAF sensor: located on the plastic air intake (left side of engine, going to airbox;
MAF unscrew 2 screws, disconnect harness, pop out MAF
Spray down liberally w/ MAF Sensor spray (Walmart, Autozone, etc., not hard to find)
Its a cascade failure:
Bad /dirty MAF signal triggers CEL;
CEL then tells system to disable & trigger ABS/traction light.
Then driver freaks out seeing ALL THESE WARNING LIGHTS!😧🤢🤑
(ask me how I know...)
Several threads on forum dealing w/ this issue.
This may not fix the issue, but is good starting point also check OBD code!
(readers are very inexpensive ($30.00 range for mine), most auto parts store will scan for free;
Look up code in attached PDF (& save file...)
CEL doesn't "trigger" any other type of OBD code, CEL is triggered when certain fault conditions exist.
MAF faults don't have any connection to braking system faults (Traction control, stability control, ABS, etc.).
