Ok, who is they?

What was the code?

And no, I do not believe it will cause the car not to start

Is this a Chrysler or a Mercedes? If it's a Chrysler, no, unless it is shorted and causing the Engine Computer to shut down to protect itself. It combines or isolates the intake manifold passages to vary the tuning for different engine speeds and loads.
