Burned up Supercharger?

Alright so the other day my check engine light came on. I took it by the dealer and said that it needed a new supercharger intake manifold sensor if i remember right. I took it back the today and they installed it. I went out to my car after it was done and turned it on and the check engine light was still on. I walked back and told them, and they took it back to try and clear it. An hour later, they said that they dont know why its on, and after talking with the people in Michigan, and trying what they had to say, came back to tell me that i had to replace the supercharger. Has this ever happened to anyone? I'm running NO mods, and its COMPLETELY stock with 38K miles.

Comments or ideas?

if you can please find out what DTC codes were being set.

I may have a similar issue as i get p1182 and p1112 to randomly pop up, I'm at 36k miles.

You could always ask, usually they are pretty cool that way.

ESV072, how much are they charging you, or do you have an extended warranty?

Hey guys, i know it may seem lame, but, have you cleand your maf sensors yet?
p1112 is a code dealing with low voltage of your iat sensor
the iat temp sensor is tied in with your maf sensor, just a thought.

If you have an extended warranty... WOOT! FREE SUPACHAGA!

I'm just barely in the warrenty period. It was a 3 month 3K mile thing (bought it used) they'll do it in warrenty, so its all good there.

The guy said that he cleaned the throttle body (i think im getting a new one of them as well) and it still kept going with the error.

The funny part in all this is that I'm the first one in the dealer to feck up a supercharger before. As a result, I gotta drop the car fora day or so so they can figure out how to replace it lol
