Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: P0102, P0103 MAF sensor

Description

Nissan Maxima. P0102, P0103 MAF SENSOR

The mass air flow sensor (1) is placed in the stream of intake air. It measures the intake flow rate by measuring a part of the entire intake flow. The mass air flow sensor controls the temperature of the hot wire to a certain amount. The heat generated by the hot wire is reduced as the intake air flows around it. The greater air flow, the greater the heat loss.

Therefore, the electric current supplied to hot wire is changed to maintain the temperature of the hot wire as air flow increases. The ECM detects the air flow by means of this current change.

Diagnosis Procedure

Regarding Wiring Diagram information

1.INSPECTION START

Confirm the detected DTC.

2.CHECK INTAKE SYSTEM

Check the following for connection.

  • Air duct
  • Vacuum hoses
  • Intake air passage between air duct to intake manifold

3.CHECK GROUND CONNECTION

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Check ground connection E9.

4.CHECK MAF SENSOR POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT

Nissan Maxima. CHECK MAF SENSOR POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT

  1. Disconnect mass air flow (MAF) sensor harness connector.
  2. Turn ignition switch ON.
  3. Check the voltage between MAF sensor harness connector and ground.

5.DETECT MALFUNCTIONING PART

Check the following.

  • Harness connectors E11, F2
  • Junction block connectors E44, E45
  • Harness for open or short between mass air flow sensor and ECM
  • Harness for open or short between mass air flow sensor and IPDM E/R

6.CHECK MAF SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT FOR OPEN AND SHORT

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect ECM harness connector.
  3. Check the continuity between MAF sensor harness connector and ECM harness connector.
  4. Also check harness for short to ground and short to power.
