When I am sitting at a light or in park my car idle rough, almost stalls. While I'm driving it seems to be ok. I know I have to get my alternator change. And I was wondering if this is related. Or is this another issue. I unplugged the maf sensor and it idle correctly but now I have a check engine light. And can't run it far with sensor unplugged.

We need the other codes as well. Plug it back in and see what happens. It does not mean the sensor is bad. Get your alternator changed and have them look at this issue as well. It may be a vacuum leak.
