The warning light and poor running along with the 1-2-1 code would
indeed point towards an AMM problem. Check the following, one at a
1) remove the electrical connector to the AMM. Check to see tha tthe
wires are in good shape (partiucularly withoit the first 2 or 3 cm of
the connector) and also tha tthe connection itself is clean.
Connecting and disconnecting it a few times might help clean any oxide
2) remove and inspect the air tube that connects the AMM to the
throttle plate. It must be sound and free from holes. Put a strong
light inside and stretch the hose to check it for holes.
3) the inside of the AMM should be clean and free from crud. I have
cleaned them with electrical contact cleaner, but be sure that it
states, "Leaves no residue" and that it is NOT a lubricating spray!!!
The AMM is very delicate and must be handled with care. Do not use
4) there are electrical tests that can be done, but they can easily
show the AMM to be good when it is not. I know from experience! Spent
nearly two weeks trying to find a similar problem! Do a Google groups
search for the following subjects:
save me from running around....
still having problems with my 240
Still trying to get it running right
AMM - more Q's
5) after that, if the problem continues, the AMM is probably faulty.
Check the breaker's for a used spare. New ones cost around $800USD
here. Rebuilt ones can be had, but be sure to get a good warranty.
