Exclamation What would cause this?

My car died twice on my girlfriend on her way to work and its idling low again.......... so i scanned it with an OBD reader. It said that the MAF and TPS are under minimal voltage. What would cause this? Both are brand new!

The MAF is a reman from Orielly's $87
And the TPS is brand new from autozone $38

Re: What would cause this?

Is the engine code R? What codes did you get? When it stalled, was it when she was stopping or cruising along?

Re: What would cause this?

His engine code is 4. Anyway no offence speaker king but you have so much aftermarket
crap on that engine i'm suprized it ran this long. Looking at your turbo pictures i'd be looking at bad grounds for the wiring mess under the hood. The first thing you might
want to do is throw that K-N filter in the garbage. They are junk. We sent 3 of them back and K,N refunded our money. We were getting sand and silt in our air intakes.
You might check your maf for oil leaking from your over oiled filter. Rebuilt MAF's are NOTrecommended. The first thing you have to do is find out why it stopped. No fuel or no electricity. That's everything from low battery to no spark to no ground. Good luck

Re: What would cause this?

Well first off i dont like K&N.....i use Hippro. And it was me not reseting the computer after i put the new MAF on. Not all that aftermarket "crap" (two things)that makes the car run better. And i dont split wires to the chassis, i run parallel.....not in a series.
