this may have something to do with the installation. volant cold air intake manuals can be quite incomprehensible at times. if ur sure you installed everything properly call someone at volant and tell them about the problem.

take your truck to the dealer they can reset your computer and that will take care of your problem.
Nope, it will not.
The problem is that the MAF sensor is not reading the air intake right. This is a problem with many aftermarket air intakes, including Volant.
First thing you need to do is get a good scanner and a good information system, like AlldataDIY.
Do the diagnostics for the trouble code and you will see the BARO sensor also plays a part in making this trouble code active and is also part of the intake system.
Any time you modify the intake or exhaust systems on these newer cars/trucks, you are asking for headaches.
The mass air flow (MAF) sensor is an air flow meter that measures the amount of air entering the engine. The engine control module (ECM) uses the MAF sensor voltage signal to provide the correct fuel delivery for a reduction in emissions. The ECM uses the MAF sensor signal to control fuel delivery until a calibrated amount of engine air flow is attained. The MAF sensor produces an output voltage based on the inlet air flow through the air induction system. This output voltage will display on the scan tool as a voltage parameter and as a grams per second (g/s) parameter. The ECM compares the actual MAF sensor voltage signal to a predicted MAF value. This comparison will determine if the signal is stuck, or is too low or too high for a given operating condition.
Verify the integrity of the air induction system by inspecting for the following conditions:
Restrictions in the MAF air induction system and the turbocharger system
Restrictions in the exhaust system-Refer to Restricted Exhaust.
Leaks in the charge air cooler with a J 46091
Leaks at the MAF/IAT sensor O-ring seal
Leaks at the MAP pressure sensor seal
Cracked or damaged MAF sensor housing
Restricted intake air duct or a dirty air filter element
Debris blocking the air sensing filaments of the MAF sensor
A MAF sensor that is installed backwards
An exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve that is stuck open.
A skewed MAF sensor will also cause the predicted MAF value to disagree with the actual MAF sensor value. Use the scan tool to compare the MAF Sensor parameter to a known good vehicle under various operating conditions.

It's letting to air much in. It's not made for the diesel. You need to send it back and get the green one. It's made for the diesel engine. I have the same truck, I've had know problem. I got mine from 4x4 center co.

Just got a Duramax so have been looking. I was told that lean mixture was a problem IF YOU DIDN'T DISCONNECT THE BATTERIES during installation. When you reconnect and start the computer is said to reset the mass air to take care of this problem.

I've always found that the guys at Banks Power are pretty knowledgeable about diesel air intake. I would start there. Best of luck!
#12 of 16 aem issue also?
Jun 23, 2009 (8:44 am)
on our sierra we added the aem intake and we have the same issue like you. the engine check light came on and has stayed on for the last few hundred miles. we didn't know about this before buying it, the different reviews for the brute force never mentioned it. our friend is going to try his scangauge to read what the code is but sounds like it will probably be the maf sensor like yours. how did you get it resolved?

There is a push in primer i believe on the top of where fuel filter screws in, I had to crack the fuel filter open slightly, have somebody else crank the engine while u are furiously pumping till u get good fuel flow, Stop cranking motor retighten fuel filter and ur done. I had the same problem a few yrs ago, and that took care of it.

My first try in Banks Power, I was disappointed to the guy who handled my order. The reason why I shifted to other Air Intakes.
#16 of 16 Deisel air intake
Dec 16, 2011 (6:23 pm)
I have just finished altering a Hino bus into a RV.
The engineers relocated the air intake from half way up the bus to a level which is near the bottom of the bus near the rear, about 200mm from the rear and 200mm from the base of the body. It is a 1984 model.
Does this present a problem which should be remedied. Will the extra dust/rain etc be likely to present a problem please.
I intend to put a turbo on as well.
