Q: Issues with MAF sensor and P010B code

asked by on

Hello. My car has MAF sensor issues and the P010B code. I had the MAF cleaned but the issue persists.

The vehicle's Engine Control Module (ECM) may need reprogramming, as to a technical bulletin ITB09-028 dated June 3, 2009. The reprogramming by the dealer will be needed to try and see if the code goes away, if not, further diagnosis will be needed. Your sensor may need to be replaced on Bank 2. Sometimes cleaning them cannot fix all the oil that gets on the sensor from the aftermarket oil filters, which causes shorted sensor wires.
