      My code kept popping up at idle as well, about once or twice a week. I'd searched all over for some sort of leak. Finally there was only one thing I hadn't really checked: I undid the insulated...

      The most likely cause is an intake leak. Check all the post-MAF intake air plumbing--the hoses, pipes, clamps, everything--as well as the PCV system. Check for cracks, fit, tightness, etc.

      If it's genuine Bosch, I would expect it to work as well as any genuine Bosch MAF, regardless of where it's made. Otherwise Bosch would clearly have some serious and uncharacteristic issues.

      Check fuse 43 in the fuse panel.

      No, they shouldn't all be 5 V. Like I said, two of the ones you check should be ground. Two should be 5 V. Two of them connect to the wipers of the potentiometers in the pedal; their voltage is...
