Hey all, 

so i own a absolute shitbox Mazda 121 Metro 01' Model, and unfortunately when put the new air intake in, as the MAF cable needed to be extended, I hand wired the cable and worked just fine. Somehow when the car had its Clutch replaced, the maf connector disconnected its wires from the plug and so I just believed i could re-wire it and it would be fine and go on its way. I am now at the stage where the motor is backfiring, stalling mostly on start and i imagine, is running at full rich, which is probably flooding the engine. I am also in Uni and have absolutely no money but need the car asap.

So basically does anyone have any ideas of what to do since i have re-wired it several times now, and no such success has come. i first rewired the connector and plug, but the plug slowly has been deteriorating so i took the pins out and just for a test wired them to the maf (just by holding them in) to see if that would work but nothing has worked.

I also was told that if i do not disconnect the battery, that the MAF sensor and connector could have some sort excess electrical energy inside the cables but i am not sure of how viable and answer that is

Cheers all

Are you sure the wiring is correct?

 

That makes zero sense below. It's not that.

But if you did not disconnect the battery, the ECU still carries a fault, clear faults and try again.
