2013 Chevrolet Cruze CEL won’t turn off

Can’t get my engine light to go off. It reads it needs a new mass air flow sensor but I just replaced it. It stayed off a few days but is now back on. Any suggestions??

What was the code?

No code will tell you that you need a new MAF sensor.

Not sure of the exact code. Took it to auto zone twice, and that was what popped up on their computer both times

Thanks,

Ask them to provide you the code in the form of a letter and four numbers.

As Tester says, a code doesn’t mean that a specific part needs to be replaced. It means that a diagnostic procedure needs to be done to determine what part is at fault. The sensor might be correctly reporting that something else is broken.
