Replaced MAF sensors with cheap sensors and check engine light still on

I replaced my MAF sensors with 2 new ones from carparts.com and check engine light came back on again same code P0102. Could it still be a bad MAF sensor and just replace it with a bosch?

Your car has two MAF sensors? Weird...

Yes, stick with Bosch.

P0102 indicates that you either have a wiring break or short to ground. An new MAF will not fix this, you need to find the wiring issue and fix it.

Maybe you mean o2 sensor (Aka lambada)?
There is only one MAF sensor located next to the air filter.
The o2 sensors are located on the exhaust, before and after the catalytic converter.
4 in total, 2 for each side.
What faults codes do you get?
Anyway, I think that the word “cheap” is the cause of your problem.
You need to use OEM or at least OE part, with the exact part number as the one removed.
