Check Engine Light On...P101 Code HELP

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

My buddy has a 2003 2500 Silverado with the 6.0L, he is at about 55,000mi and his check engine light just came on. There doesnt seem to be anything wrong with it, but it sure is lighting up. So of course we ran down to get the codes and came up with either P101 or P10101. One or the other. Anyways the guy said he though maybe 02 sensor or something like that. I do not have much background on this, so the more help is better. If you know the code and have a solution please let me know!

The code is for the MAF sensor. Does he have a K&N filter? or a Hypertech tune? Mine gave me the same code so I cleaned my MAF sensor, changed everything to stock and have had no problems since.

You may need to clean the sensor with a little electronics cleaner or MAF sensor cleaner. The light will go out but the code will stay in the computer until it's cleared with a code reader.

If it is P0101, P1100, or P1101 then it is the MAF. The Hypertech tuner might be able to clear the codes. If not the place that read it can do it for you. Get a K&N recharge kit and follow the instructions - do NOT over oil it. The problem is air passes through with oil in it and it can possibly damage the sensor beyond help. I don't know what they cost to replace but GM tends to be proud of those simple electronic parts. Cleaning it should do the trick if it hasn't gone too long.
