The Check Engine Light may erroneously illuminate, signifying a fault in the intake air temperature circuit. If no fault is found in the sensor or wiring, a simple reprogramming of the powertrain control module (PCM) may fix the problem.

    Check engine light came on. Had codes read came back p0110 which means bad intake air temperature sensor.

    The check engine came on and when I took it to get the code read it came back P0110. The next day I took it in to my mechanic and the sensor and the circuit checked out fine. I am now in the process of trying to get into a dealer for the latest flash update for the PCM, so it hopefully, won't happen again.
