Yep. The way the PCM is tuned from the factory, codes have 3 possible values.
MIL on 1st error
MIL on 2nd error
No error reported
There'* also an option for SES light on or off. Not all codes will throw an SES light, and some codes will throw an SES light but only after the fault has been detected twice.
I would do what Bob suggested and disconnect the MAF to see if it runs without stalling. If that fixes it, then you've found your problem. It may be worth noting that I've dealt with my fair share of bad 3800 MAFs.
