Deja vu here. I really don't know how the phase one didn't fix this but I suppose there could be more than one event that could cause that code.

Hope they get you rolling asap

UPDATE

The dealership found that my air box was damaged on the intake side of the MAF sensor and they suspect this is what's causing the high air input signal. They're making repairs as I'm typing this. Hopefully this is the fix.

The damage was on the underside of the airbox so I wouldn't have noticed it without disassembly. Thankfully, the CARVANA warranty covered the repair no questions asked. Just frustrated that I have to be without my car while the fix is being done.

How does the underside of the airbox get damaged? That is weird. That makes sense to me though as a cause of the POBD code.. Not that I know jack.....

Also the underside is the dirty side, unless it messed up the seating surface of the filter, no idea what the techs are thinking. Smells really fishy, especially when carvana is picking up the tab.

Best of luck not having to make a return trip after they make "repairs".
