Start by checking for a blown EXH fuse in the underhood fuse box. If the fuse is blown, check for a chaffed wire harness rub through near the bracket holding purge solenoid. That’s a common rub through spot. If you discover chaffing, repair the short-to-ground condition and replace the fuse.

Next, if the vehicle has a manual transmission, check for a short-to-ground wire chaffing condition near the clutch pedal position switch. The bulletin suggests the harness may chaffe on the clutch bracket. If it’s chaffed, repair and then check and replace the emissions fuse in the underhood fuse box.

Then check for wiring harness chaffing at the oil filter adapter housing. This would be a short-to-ground condition. If you find chaffing, repair it.

Check oxygen sensor wiring

Check MAF sensor wiring harness

check the MAF sensor wiring harness for chaffing, open, short-to-ground. Also check the MAF connector for terminal corrosion or pins pushed out of place
