I have to play devil's advocate here. I was very satisfy with ebay MAF what gave me 15% fuel savings, while some members reported that MAF from AutohausAz come factory defective.
Still, that would be a statistical anomaly. I've only seen one post about an autohausaz being bad and there were other issues with the car -- and maybe the poster, too.
And I've seen only two posters (including you) that haven't had a problem with a replica MAF.

I even put the car in reverse and pressed the gas, but nothing happen. What the hell could be the reason for this? Can anyone out there please help me out here?
What exactly was the process and the product(s) you used to clean the MAF? If it is dirty, properly cleaning it won't hurt anything and may help, but if you have codes it doesn't often seem to do much good,either. If done improperly it can damage the MAF, too.
I like Eric's suggestion, you'll get a CEL but it should settle down.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
