MAF Sensor

Does the engine have to shut off if the MAF sensor is unplugged?

Does the engine have to shut off if the MAF sensor is unplugged? Saw some videos stating thats a way to test if it is bad. Ive had issues with my car cranking too long and thought it might be the MAF sensor. when i unplug it the car still runs the same just trips the check engine light that wasn't there before.

no it doesn't have to shut off, modern cars are so comlex backup software will often make them still run fine
