    yesterday i put a new air intake in and later on my check engine light came on. I checked and it was p0102 maf sensor low voltage i started checking and i didn't see or hear any vaccum leaks. So i started checking the wires and the yellow wire had chaffed against the box that came with the intake. my question is it's really close to the electrical connector so is there a way to remove the wires from the connector, so i can cut out the chaffed part? or do i need to buy a new connector and re wire it? Im going to just try putting electrical tape over the exposed wire for now.

    thanks in advance for any input.

    You can probably buy a new pigtail at a GM dealer. Or find a shop with a pin tool and connector set.

    The easiest way for a long term permanent repair is to replace it as a pigtail as the Napper previously mentioned. Most pigtails are available in the aftermarket now as well as in the AC Delco line so their prices have come down some.

    also remember some maf sensors do not like K&N filters because of the oil...if you need to clean it use only the proper maf cleaner
