So I've had this happen to me twice now, the first time I thought it was just a coincidence. I wired up my Hella 500 HIDs, and in doing so, I disconnected my battery. Everything with the install went very well, but when I hooked the battery back up, my truck ran like the timing was retarded or a vacuum line wasn't hooked up (coughing, sputtering, couldn't increase RPMs without it wanting to almost die). So I went thru all the basics (checked hoses, checked fuses) and it all looked good. Then I decided to clean my MAF sensor, and that seemed to help. I could now drive the truck, but it seemed to have loss of power (I wan't able to accelerate as fast). Eventually, the truck got back to normal and I just assumed the truck re-mapped it's fuel/air or something...? Anyway... I just installed some audio components to the rig this past weekend, and when I hooked the battery back up (wouldn't ya know it) the truck ran like crap again! SOOO, I checked my fuses and hoses/lines again, and ended up cleaning my MAF sensor again to get the truck drivable! Is this just coincidental??? Or is my truck going into some mode of relearning air/fuel or something???
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, as I am at a loss of what to check/do next. Thanks!
