Check engine light in 325ix with new aFe pro dry panel

Hi fanatics, hope you can help me.

Can anyone offer any insight how to fix a check engine light with the aFe pro dry filter. I do no know why it light up, the filter is reviewed well here and its easy to install. Anyone have the same problem?

How do I make the light disappear?
Do I need to get a MAF cleaner? I never used one before. Is MAF cleaner safe?

Do I need a tool of some kind to clear the light? Can I unplug battery?

Upset, as I waited for a week to get it and was excited

Thank you
2004 325ix 4 wheel drive

You need a code reader. I see you're in Canada as well. Partsource might read your codes for free, I'm not sure. A code reader will tell you whats wrong and clear the CEL but it will just come back if you dont address the issue.
