    Hello,
    You may have a bad MAF sensor, but I think there's more going on here, especially since the security light was on and now you get "no crank" condition. These problems can be very hard to diagnose for an experienced technician with all the appropriate diagnostic tool, so you're in for quite an uphill battle. How much money are you willing to throw at this problem with the hopes that you might get lucky? If you'd rather take this approach, then keep replacing parts, but I suggest you take it to a good diagnostician. Try a Gold Shield Smog Station.

    Hey, do not clean the MAF with carb cleaner, use the cleaner specially designed for this purpose. carb cleaner will likely destroy the sensor.
    Good Luck!
