I got used to it but hopefully after I get tuned at the dyno tommorow they will all finally go away. I have an OBD II scanner to clear the codes but it just gets annoying constantly clearing codes, especially when you know its the same code being thrown every time.

Unfortunately you may have to uninstall it. That's what I had to do. It's a shame.

As much as I like the AEM L-Type intake, I might just go back to the Injen SR. I know it is intake related. How to get it to stop is beyond me...

It's SCION CHEAP MAF SENSOR related!

I had this crazy problem with those lights for awhile. I have the AEM intake and thought it was that. I finally took it to the dealer and they diagnosed a bad alternator. They put in a new one and have not had a single problem since then. I am not suggesting that you have a bad alternator--just that there are any number of reasons those lights can come on. I asked the dealer why the alternator light never came on and they could not answer.

Go to Autozone or something like that and use their code reader. Then you can go from there. I keep throwing P0171, which is MAF related leaning out bank 1. It is also related to a few other things, but I didn't start throwing code until the install, so I can narrow my issue down.

I just changed out the filter the other day and recleaned the MAF. I haven't had a chance to really drive it much so I am kinda waiting to see what happens.

I'm using an Apexi dry filter. No more oil, no more oil, no more oil!

My car started to tall also when I had the intake installed. It felt like there wasn't enough gas going to the engine. Usually at a light it would happen.

Is anyone having a problem with the car dieing because the E.F.I fuse keeps blowing out. The VSC light and the trac off light come on but the check engine light does not. Dealer doesn't have a clue as to what is going on with my XB. Any one else having this problem

All of you have had the lights coming on it seems, but what I want to know is was your car still drivable?

My lights came on and suddenly i have a crappy idle, and i can't take her above 3,000 rpm in any gear without it pinging like crazy and jerking on and off the gas... which means know acceleration and 60 mph tops

Am I the only one with this problem ?
