Default Air Intake Issues?

I removed my air intake when i did the work on my timing chain cover gasket and it was fine. Put it back on and no issues. Took it off the other day to clean up some stuff (was cleaning the engine bay) and after putting it back on and hooking everything back up i started up the truck and the check engine light came in. Been driving it and its been running just fine. Any ideas?? Bad sensor?? Leaking??

Chances are something didn't get plugged back in all the way. Unplug and plug back in the mass air flow and any other sensors or vacuum tubes connected

Can't be much help until you find out what the code is. I wouldn't reset the light until you pull the code and know why it showed up in the first place just in case it is a serious issue.
