    Installed intake, parking assist, ABS, suspension warnings

    So I had my KPE intake installed, and after going about 50 ft I get a bunch of warnings. Parking assist off, ABS, a message that said "Service suspension system" and the yellow brake light in the rpm gauge is now staying lit. After unplugging the batter and MAF the car didnt have any warnings or messages. Now today the ((p)) light comes on when car is running, and the car will automatically turn off any traction control changes I make. The car also occasionally shows the other messages I listed above.

    Only modifications done to the car is headers, exhaust, KPE intake.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    I am guessing that you did not install the intake yourself? The installation calls for one of the panels to be connected to a factory ground. Perhaps that ground is not secure and is what is causing these problems.

    Correct I did not do it myself, and my knowledge of things like this is not very extensive, I will mention this to the installer. I would assume that they did this but maybe not. As far as I know the wiring hasn't changed just moved the stock MAF to the new intake.

    Thanks for the advice I will let you know how it turns out.

    In the instructions for that kit you have to undo the ground and install the filter assembly using the original ground hole obviously reinstalling that same connection, these guys might have a good point for you to look into.

    It will do that when you dont plug in the Mass air meter. So plug it in.
