Replaced mass air flow sensor harness. At that time had two codes p0102 and p460 then I went to body control and got other codes.
Ford Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

Did this issue occur after you replaced the mass air flow harness or was this harness replaced to try and correct this fault here?

Sorry b2148 b1201 and no program
Ford Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

B1201 is a code for fuel level sender circuit fault.B2148 also doesnt come up for your model vehicle.It may be that the scan tool used is causing false codes to show up as I have seen before.It looks like the main issue is with the fuel level sensor.If the sensor was replaced this can be a fault with the wiring itself from the sensor or the instrument cluster at fault needing replaced.Below is the diagnostic procedure for this fault here that needs followed step by step to pinpoint which component is the cause needing replaced.Your down to wiring at fault or the instrument cluster needing replaced.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
