P1241 = Torque Monitor.
Compares the actual torque signal computed from a mass air flow sensor signal with the driver demand torque signal computed from an accelerator pedal position sensor signal.
TROUBLESHOOTING HINTS (The most likely causes for this code to be set are:)
Throttle actuator control motor failed.
Intake system vacuum leak.
There is some trash around mass airflow sensor.
Check the wire connections etc arounf the MAF and throttle actuator.
When a problem is detected, the would trigger the MIL and go into limp mode. After restarting, the ECM would check through again and if it finds nothing wrong, the MIL would not illuminate and engine would work normally.
Since the problem did not recur, it is intermittent and you need not worry about it until it reappears.
