Question about Cars & Trucks
I get an error on scan tool that says limited activity at map sensor. can i check this sensor or clean it some how
Yes you can with sensor safe cleaner. They sell it at auto parts stores. If it doesn't work after cleaning it do not buy the sensor at a parts store. Spend the extra money and get the correct sensor at the dealership. If you dont you may buy and replace it again when the $28.00 part from the parts store doesn't fix it. Spend $22.00 more the first time and fix it once .

I know this post is old, but right on the engine theres a sticker that says use multi-ground plugs only. I read a similar problem like yours and it seemed to turn out that the spark was arcing to ground over the ceramic on the plug. So maybe it could have something to do with the single ground plugs.

I just had the same thing happen to my 99 RX300. I replaced the MAF sensor and cleaned the throttle body. We cleared the codes and check engine light came on again... with a knock sensor code. Had to replace knock sensors. Found some great info on how to do that here. http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=41266&mode=threaded Car drives great now!

MAP SENSOR LOCATED BACK TOP INTAKE ON THROTTLE BODY NEXT TO IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE.THE MAP SENSOR WILL HAVE A SMALL VACUUM LINE CONNECTED TO IT.

Tips for a great answer:

The powertrain control module (PCM)
The instrument panel cluster
The sensing diagnostic module (SDM)
The electronic brake control module (EBCM)
The serial data line class 2 (circuit 1807) allows the scan tool to access directly the PCM in order to read emissions-related information. The scan tool gains access to both data lines through the data link connector (DLC). You may then monitor or control system operations for diagnostic purposes.
