Question about 1996 Chrysler Town & Country
Wont pass smog, due to check engine light. Scanner gives me code P0106? Barometric pressure out of range. How do I pin point the problem? does the map sensor need to be replaced?
Hi Heather, I'm glad to help! Heather, provided you have a good vacuum going to the Map Sensor and wiring and connectors are good. That would be the first thing I would replace. But, if after checking wiring and connectors and a good vacuum you replace the map sensor and still have the code I would have it check out for a possible (PCM) Powertrain Control Module. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Heather!

Jun 17, 2009- ok I just looked at it. it is simple.
the lens pivots and presses a switch in on one end to make the light come on. take a butter knife or very small screw driver and reach in between the lens and the black center console. there you will CAREFULLY press a flat tab to the side that is made onto the lens ( I hope you dont break this tab).
on the very opposite position on the clear lens towards the door is where the lens has a tab that has a small hole in it. there is a plastic pin made onto the console trim that fits into this hole so the lens will pivot. this will give you an idea of which direction to pull the lens when you press in the tab,. it does look like it would break easily. I havent had to take mine off yet thankfully.
please visit again and rank this answer if this helps!... good luck

I had the same problem on my 07 and it turned out to be caused by the bulbs getting too hot and melting the surrounding plastic which opened the circuit powering them. I was able to fix the problem by removing the bulbs and cleaning the sockets allowing the bulbs to seat correctly. The lenses snap off to give you access to the bulbs. If you are not familiar with how interiors of cars come apart, I would not suggest doing it as you may crack the lens.

vacuum leaks on intake manifold,
the air tube between the air filter.
intake manifold vacuum hose.
clean throttle plate with Berryman carburator cleaner
SEE sample picture HERE
Also remove carbon built up behind the EGR valve and the EGR passage tube.
Vacuum leak WILL offset the intended 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio.
More un-metered air (leaks) will lean out the fuel mixture.
Use small amount of Berryman carb clearer at potential air leak area will help you identify trouble spot.
At idle,just spray and listen for the RPM surge.
The in-rush of carb clearer will increase the RPM on the motor.
Record the problem spot(s) and address it later.
EGR carbon built up require 2+ hours to clean from start to finish.
You will need a new EGR base gasket before your start.
Locate and remove the EGR valve after the vehicle is cool down.
Carefully record the connector and vacuum line (for older vehicle) location by drawing an easily to follow diagram.
Remove the EGR valve.
Inspect the location of the carbon built-up inside the valve and the EGR passage tube.
SOAK these areas with WD-40 spary.
You will need a small screwdriver,cloth hanger and lot of newspaper and time to get this cleaning done right.
RE-SOAK the carbon and let it sit for over-night will also help.
One the last round,pass a shop vacuum of the EGR valve and the passage pipe.
Install the new EGR gasket and connectors.
Allow the vehicle to warm up outdoor to burn up any remaining WD-40.
Take it for a test drive.
Please rate my answer if it's useful to you.

Bad vacuum switch

there are no codes that say replace O2 sensors,or remove converter,Thats just somebody's guessing,When it says O2 sensor that tells the mechanic to look for trouble in that area,wiring or faulty readings,And there are four O2 sensors.

Fault Code Definition
The Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor measures the rise and fall of the air pressure inside the Intake Manifold. This provides critical data needed for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to control the Air Fuel Ratio, the Ignition Spark Timing, and many components of the Emissions Control Systems. The Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Sensor P0106 code is set when there is a problematic or erratic performance in the voltage signal to the PCM.
