On Saturday at ROR I had one of three wires on the male portion of the wiring unit that connects to my mass flow air sensor burn up and shred. We tried to crimp and solder them back together but to no use. Does anyone know where I can get this portion of wiring without having to re-wire everything? I went to Toyota/Carlsbad today and they said to try junkyards. I tried calling Mini Trucks/San Diego but no answer all day. Was wondering if anyone could help me find this part. Thanks. Craig

I had close to the same problem on my truck but my mass air sensor was pulled off. I repaired the wires and it still didnt work, after a lot head scratching and troubleshooting I finally found a fuse under the dash labeled efi that was burnt up from the wires crossing. Be sure that is not blown, and there is also a efi fuse under the hood in a fues block box. It may have also burnt up the mass air sensor, i was told (be an electrician) that patching the wires like would work as long as the are isolated from each other. Solved my problems. Hope it helps.
Good luck!

hey craig money, im the dude from sat. with the black toyota that grenaded my 9". remember???? fish was able to help me get in here. thanks for the tip! about your problem, yes, check all the fuses, but its possible that you damaged your pcm if the wires really crossed. since you repaired the wires, is the check engine light on??? and check the emement wire in the MAF, make sure its not burned. if the check engine light is on you can get the codes with a paper clip, by jumping the e1 and te2 pins in the diagnostic connector and counting the flashes of the light. as far as a wrecking yard, i dont know about your area, but there is a mini truck specialist in santa ana called Fermans. they have all kinds of toyota parts.
