156 jtd - disconnected MAF on Friday - 100 miles later - motor control system failure
JTD has been feeling a little sluggish of late, so at work on Friday, I decided to pull the plug on the MAF.
I then drove home, approx 50 miles, no problem. Car felt a bit better, but nothing major.
Left the MAF unplugged over the weekend, but didn't actually use the car.
Drive to work this morning, still disconnected, no problem.
Get in the car to come home, ignition on, self check all OK.
Starts fine, then the dreaded Motor Control System Failure!
Turn off, open the bonnet, reconnect the MAF.
Start up again - same error.
Ok, drive home, car feels and drives fine.
Was the error because I pulled the connection? If so, why did it take a couple of days and 100 miles before it realised?
Assuming it is moaning about the MAF connection, I assume its not going to clear itself until I go to a dealer for them to reset it?
Or maybe its just a coincidence, and there is actually something else wrong?
