Stumped

I finally got my car back today from getting a new starter. Now I have ap0102, bad maf sensor. Will that trigger the transmission light by the gear number on the dash if it's being driven with the plug unplugged? I don't want it to be another problem with this car. It's the first major problem I've had, the starter. Starts right up now, as long as the maf plug is unplugged. I've searched and some had the same problem and some didn't. So I'm. It sure. Thanks in advance

Never mind, I guess I didn't search hard enough. Seems to be the cause. I'm going to go get some maf cleaner first before I invest in a new one.

Could be the connector wasn't pushed in all the way either or maybe it's unplugged. A lot of stuff gets moved around doing a starter because of the location.

Whenever it's plugged in it starts and dies instantly. As soon as I disconnect the plug it starts up and drives. I ordered a new one so hopefully it'll take care of the problem

I bet they dropped it after taking it off to do the starter.

Possibly, or me fiddling with it when I was going to attempt the starter myself. Either way no big deal as long as it's back to normal when the new one comes, it'll be here tomorrow. I'll let you all know, I'm sure you are all on the edge of your seat waiting lol jk. I just want my bimmer back to normal
