Check engine light from Intake

Alright the search isnt working for me.. the same shit just keeps coming up. So if someone could find me a post on whats going on it would be helpful. The CAI is on but there is one censor thats not plugged in. And now the check engine light is on and my car is hard to start and is idling weird. Would just cleaning it help or is there a way to put wires in the censor to make it think its there??

sometimes even after a reset of the computer...it takes time for the computer to learn your upgrade and come up with a new fuel map...and in the meantime your car might run lean or misfire a cylinder leading to a check engine light, which won't go away until it clears itself after so many starts w/o problems or until you use a scanner to clear it. It's good to have an obd-ll scanner to be sure your car's ecu is taking the new upgrade ok.

I get my kicks on EC.
