well if the filter is not blocked or clogged, and the inlet to the filter box is also clear - then the sensor may have failed or be simply 'dirty' ( dirt oils dust) - it could just need a good cleaning.
if you use a spray cleaner make sure it is for air flow sensors !
(the other throttle body etc. cleaners are too harsh and will destroy the sensor )

wow- could be a damaged wire to the sensor ??- seems odd that airflow when low there is an error- i would think at 3000plus you need more air flow and that would be worse .
maybe at higher vehicle speeds there is a ram air effect from the speed of the car that overcomes the restriction ??

Check for leaves or plastic bags that may have been sucked into the inlet or filter housing too.

I really appreciate your effort to help.. I was carefull with sensor and I doubt it could be wiring coz it never happens over 3000rpms but who knows..I'm going to mechanic next week will see if he can figure it out.
Thanks!

pff..i changed MAF, MAP and O2 sensor and still having same error..mechanic said i should go to Honda and do ECU software upgrade :unsure: ..is that even a thing?
Are you using genuine Honda OEM parts? Some aftermarket sensors don't read the same as OEM. I've had problems in the past with aftermarket sensors.

During the last two services the Honda mechanics either completed a software check or updated to the latest software as they had removed the dongle I have permanently fitted to my OBD port which sends me an alarm when ever it is removed. I was under the impression these software updates were related to the ECU, however, I may be wrong.
