Hmm if it indeed get shorted you will need to replace it, the thing is, if you have the intake the dealership wont replace it for you, so put the stock intake back on and they will probably just fix it under warranty.

But Miguel from now on any installs you should disconnect the battery

yeah, then let it idle again for like 5 minutes. If that doesnt solve the problem its most likely the sensor thats defective

But yeah miguel if your car is still crazy you are going to need to put the stock airbox back on and just go to the dealership and just pretend you don't know whats wrong with it. They will just find out and fix it under warranty
