yes, let me go get it. 1FAHP23166G172960

Don :

also a wrong air filter can cause this code. make sure you use a motorcraft air filter, you can buy them right at wal-mat. and the only way the light will go out is if you have the computer cleared after the problem has been fixed

I do not know if you recieved this part of my message. the codes are for the computer seeing a fault in sensor readings. here is a message for the problem. check all the air hose from the air cleaner to engine and make sure the air cleaner cover is on right.
