P0103 2007 SCION XB Possible Causes

  • Faulty mass air flow sensor
  • Intake air leaks
  • Dirty mass air flow sensor
  • Dirty mass air filter
  • Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
  • Mass air flow sensor circuit poor electrical connection

First diagnose P0103 2007 SCION XB code

    Check the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded terminals.

P0103 2007 SCION XB Tech Notes

Before replacing the mass air flow sensor, try replacing the air filter and cleaning the air flow sensor with low compress air or mass air flow sensor cleaner. Reset code and drive vehicle. If the code comes back, it may be necessary to replaced the mass air flow sensor.

Cost of diagnosing the P0103 2007 SCION XB code

    Labor: 1.0

    The cost of diagnosing the P0103 2007 SCION XB code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary by location, your vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

When is the P0103 2007 SCION XB code detected?

An excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM).

P0103 2007 SCION XB Possible Symptoms

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
  • Engine stall
  • Engine running rough
  • Excessive fuel consumption
  • Excessive smoke

P0103 2007 Scion Xb Description

The Mass Air Flow (MAF) meter is a sensor that measures the amount of air flowing through the valve.

The ECM uses this information to determine the fuel injection time and to provied appropriate air-fuel

ratio.

Inside the MAF meter, there is a heated platinum wire which is exposed to the flow of intake air.

By applying a specific electrical current to the wire, the ECM heats it to a given temperature. The flow of

incoming air cools both the wire and an internal thermistor, affecting their resistance. To maintain a

constant current value, the ECM varies the voltage applied to these components in the MAF meter. The

voltage level is proportional to the airflow through the sensor, and the ECM uses it to calculate the intake

air volume.

The circuit is constructed so that the platinum hot wire and the temperature sensor provide a bridge

circuit, and the power transistor is controlled so that the potentials of A and B remain equal to maintain the

predetermined temperature.
