Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • WORK TIME, I am here 7 days a week but not all hours of the day, do not worry I will respond.
  • FEES, I am a user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website. I or another may take the call if you request one.
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box on the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

If you can get it scanned and get me those codes. I can then help you determine what is wrong and how to fix it. Only knowing the lights are on, the best a tech could do is just guess and that most likely would not be accurate.

Yeah I know but would be from mass air flow can cause that or the engine has carb-build

The MAF is one of the possible causes for one of the lights on.
