02 Gt Maf

I just bought a new 02 GT MAF, and I had a question. The MAF came with wiring; I am assuming I cannot use this wiring on my 95 so, I want the wiring harness off the most wanted parts list correct?

Thanks

u need to rewire the harness to use the integrated air temp sensor. the 02 gt maf eliminates the need for the separate sensor.

interesting, is the a write up that you know of, because searching 02 GT mAF doesn't work so well.

Now is that re-wiring the stock 2002 wiring, or the wiring harness on the most wanted parts section?

Dave,

Embalmer did a write up on this. You'll wire the new MAF harness into your existing one.

yea, you dont need the one off the most wanted parts page. i think thats for a lightning maf. the write up from embalmer was on mtcforums.com before it got shutdown. not sure if that site still exists.

I found enbalmers write up......It shows he has a 96-97 which has 6 wires to the maf....My 95 only has 4 wires to it, so I think I do need the harness.

Anyone know for sure who's done it?

Thanks

the other two wires are from the air temp sensor. so there should be 4 maf wires and 2 wires from the air temp sensor all together.

the way to search for 02 GT MAF: *02* AND *GT* AND MAF is what you put in the search engine



and if you want, you can select "search titles only" and you'll get some nice results

the 96-97s have a 6 pin connector, but only uses 4 wires, just like the 94-95 maf.

Thanks but uh, that doesn't help at all..........

In Enbalmers article, he is using a harness and a MAF from 2003.

Since 02-04 MAF's are the same, I assume o2-04 wiring harnesses are the same also.

Since I have an 02 MAF, then I can use his 03 tech article.

So....

I have 4 wires to my MAF
The 02 has 6 wires to the MAF

So, here's my finding if I am correct?

Take my 4 wires from my 95, and splice them to the same 4 wires on the 02 GT Harness, then take the remaining 2 wires on the harness and cut the IAC plastic piece off and then splice them into the IAC wires.....Hence all wires used, case closed.




DO I HAVE THIS RIGHT OR NOT?


IF so...Thanks

If not, Set me straight please?

Hopefully this one will help when others need to search.

Thanks Again Guys.

I don't think it really matters, at least it didn't seem so. I just hooked them up and tested it and had no CEL, and it runs, so I'm assuming I either got it right, or it doesn't matter.

You need to follow the directions on my article. I thought the wires leading from ABCD would match up to the new MAF harness, but they are actually reversed. When you get in there check the colors and match them according to my article. This is NOT a fifteen minute job - cutting and splicing are required - make sure you plan it well because if you cut the wires too short, you're SOL. If there are any more questions, let me know.

i was exagerating with the 15 minutes. i couldnt imagine it taking to long to connect 6 wires though.

E and F do not matter, as it is a thermistor. It changes temperature into resisitence, which has no polarity.

If your a freak like me it'll take longer than 15 minutes as you'll plan out each cut, strip, solder and shink wrap each wire.

Boy I need to go back to school....What The hell does that mean.

But I get the it doesn't matter part.

Any thing about electricity may as well be written in german because I have no understanding of wiring or electricity.

It doesn't matter though I guess.........yet.

resistence has no polarity, it has the exact same value in each direction of current flow.

It took me and my friend probably 45-60 minutes to do the whole thing, and we did exactly what Matt describes here very carefully. Do it right so you don't have to worry about it

I plan on it.

Thanks for trying to explain it again GB, but I don't understand the polarity thing, so I just give up on it.

It's not all that complicated Dave, just match up the wires, ABCD in the middle four, and E and F on the outside.

Your battery has a polarity. There is a negative and a positive.
Resistance would be what limits the flux of electrons in the wires. Like putting your finger over the end of a hose or putting a kink in the hose.
