OBD II Fault Code

  • OBD II P0102
Fault Code Definition
  • Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input
What does this mean?
The Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) measures the amount of air entering the engine and the Engine Control Module (ECM) uses the information to determine the proper amount of fuel quantity and ignition timing.
Code P0102 sets when the ECM detects a low voltage output from the Mass Air flow Sensor.
Symptoms
  • Check Engine Light will illuminate
  • In many cases, no abnormal symptoms may be noticed
  • In some cases, the vehicle may get poor fuel mileage
Common Problems That Trigger the P0102 Code
  • The MAF Sensor is unplugged or the wiring is damaged
  • Loose or corroded electrical terminals in the MAF Sensor circuit
  • Faulty MAF Sensor
Common Misdiagnosis
  • MAF Sensor replaced when the cause of code P0102 is a defective connector and/or wiring harness
  • MAF Sensor replaced when the cause of code P0102 is a vacuum leak
  • MAF Sensor replaced when the cause of code P0102 is a misfiring engine

What does code PO108 mean on a 2001 Grand Cherokee


wow , you actually tried to look it up, a 1st time here.

the MAP is a baro sensor used to calculate fuel injection RATES.

if you have gross air leaks to the system the engine IDLE screams.

is it?

108 means the voltage is too high.

usually its unplugged, or bad sensor.

otential causes of a P0108 code: Bad MAP sensor Leak in vacuum supply line to MAP sensor Engine vacuum leak Short on signal wire to PCM Short on reference voltage wire from PCM Open in ground circuit to MAP Worn engine causing low vacuum



Bad MAP sensor Leak in vacuum supply line to MAP sensor Engine vacuum leak Short on signal wire to PCM Short on reference voltage wire from PCM Open in ground circuit to MAP Worn engine causing low vacuum



http://www.obd-codes.com/p0108



and last. but before ECU.

low engine compression, is 1 more, causes , many



what i do is reseat the MAP sensor

i then make sure he vacuum port is not clogged. (both sides)

i then measure the output , keyon, and idle and gunning throttle.

any Voltmeter works here,

key on is 5v or near.

idle 1.8v

gun engine as the RPMs fall like a rock the volts tries to hit 0.5vdc.



http://www.fixkick.com/look/odds-ends/jeep/MAP-sensor-output-real.jpg



very very easy to find with a voltmeter

if the meter agrees with vacuum gage, then the MAP is ok

and you have air leaks or low vacuum for (VAST reasons)

ask.

Getting trouble code 106. What is solution for correcting this problem. Thank you. 2005 crossfire.


Chrysler codes,. only.

p0106,

on newer Chysler, cars they have many codes with 106, leaving out the prefix is bad idea.

Like U0102

or C0106?

P0106 is MAP performance failure. (that dont mean replace it)

the puter has no IDEA what is wrong, only that tests failed.

here are the conditions.

When Monitored and Set Condition



  • When Monitored: Engine running for at least 30 seconds and no fault in the throttle valve actuator.


  • Set Condition: Low limit: The Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor reading is below a calculated value when the throttle valve angle is greater than 80F for approximately 5 seconds. High limit: The MAP Sensor reading is greater than a calculated value that is determined by engine speed and throttle valve angle for approximately 5 seconds.




now in gringo or bar stool.

1: the puter brain saw you go near wide open throttle and the

map sensor (vacuum sensor) do not show new zero vacuum.

even a clogged air filter could do this, causing a false high vacuum







POSSIBLE CAUSES




MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT OPEN




MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND




MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORT TO VOLTAGE




5-VOLT SUPPLY CIRCUIT OPEN




5-VOLT SUPPLY CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND

MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORT TO SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT




MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORT TO 5-VOLT SUPPLY CIRCUIT




SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT OPEN




ENGINE OIL SENSOR




MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE SENSOR




POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE






then the FSM goes to step by step tests. to find above reasons.

omitted. (too long )



the word low is ambiguous in all FSM.

it can mean, low plenum pressure,

or low vacuum (opposite)

and low voltage, its a pain in the xxx to find this fact out.

the map outputs high voltage for low vacuum (same as high absolute pressure)



the fsm tests are inane.

we check the voltage out of the map

at keyon

running

and wide open throttle for 1 second. just gun it and watch.

here is what it does.

left side is wide open throttle, idle is 20 inchs. key on is, WOT.

so, what is that

4.5v is keyon

start engine, get about 1.5v

the gun engine, then drop throttel to zero throttle fast

the causes,. huge vacuum about 24 inches, or 1v or less

this is a working MAP. if those tests pass.

the test (OBD2 monitor) fails for about not getting near 4vdc from MAP output pin, DOES THIS HELP?

OPERATION

See Figures 1, 2 and 3


0900c1528003c4d9.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 1: MAP sensor location-2.4L engine


0900c1528003c4da.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 2: MAP sensor location-3.0L engine


0900c1528003c4db.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 3: MAP sensor location-3.3L and 3.8L engines
The PCM supplies 5 volts of direct current to the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor. The MAP sensor then converts the intake manifold pressure into voltage. The PCM monitors the MAP sensor output voltage. As vacuum increases, the MAP sensor voltage decreases proportionately. Also, as vacuum decreases, the MAP sensor voltage increases proportionally.
With the ignition key ON , before the engine is started, the PCM determines atmospheric air pressure from the MAP sensor voltage. While the engine operates, the PCM figures out intake manifold pressure from the MAP sensor voltage. Based on the MAP sensor voltage and inputs from other sensors, the PCM adjusts spark advance and the air/fuel ratio. The MAP sensor is mounted to the intake manifold, near the throttle body inlet to the manifold. The sensor connects electrically to the PCM.


TESTING

See Figures 4, 5, 6 and 7


0900c1528003c4dc.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 4: Disengage the MAP sensor connector-3.0L engine shown

WARNING When testing the MAP sensor, make sure the harness wires do not become damaged by the test meter probes.

  1. Visually check the connector, making sure it is attached properly and that all of the terminals are straight, tight and free of corrosion.

  2. With the ignition switch ON and the engine not running, the output voltage should be 4-5 volts. The voltage should fall to 1.5-2.1 volts with a hot, neutral idle speed condition. If OK, go to the next step. If not OK, go to Step 5.
  3. Test the PCM terminal 36 for the same voltage described in the previous step to make sure the wire harness is OK. Repair as necessary.
  4. Test the MAP sensor ground circuit at the sensor connector terminal A (2.4L, 3.3L and 3.8L engines) or C (3.0L engine) and PCM terminal 43. If OK, go to the next step. If not OK, repair as necessary.
  5. Test the MAP sensor supply voltage between the sensor connector terminals A and B (2.4L, 3.3L and 3.8L engines) r A and C (3.0L engine) with the ignition key in the ON position. The voltage should be about 4.5-5.5 volts.
  6. There should also be 4.5-5.5 volts at terminal 61 of the PCM. If OK, replace the MAP sensor.
  7. If not, repair or replace the wire harness as required.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4
The MAP sensor is mounted on the intake manifold near the throttle body inlet to the manifold.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

Po108 service code


Hi,
OBD II Fault Code
  • OBD II P0108
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 Power Train 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 converts the Intake Manifold air pressure into a voltage that is high when the Intake Manifold air pressure is high and low when the Intake Manifold air pressure drops to a vacuum. The P0108 code indicates a high voltage input from the Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor to the Power Train Control Module.
Symptoms
  • Check Engine Light will illuminate
  • In many cases, no abnormal symptoms may be noticed
  • In some cases, the engine may be hard starting and/or get poor fuel economy
  • In some cases, noticeably poor engine performance may occur
Common Problems That Trigger the P0108 Code
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is defective
  • Intake Manifold vacuum leaks
  • Faulty or corroded Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure wiring or connections
Common Misdiagnoses
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is replaced when the real cause is an Intake Manifold vacuum leak
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is replaced when the real cause is a stuck-open EGR Valve
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is replaced when the real problem is a defective Idle Air Control Motor, which causes a very low engine idle

1999 olds 88. I have replaced the fuel pump, sending unit, filter, mass air flow senson, spark plugs and wires, fuel pressure regulator. The car idles fine but when you apply pressure to the gas pedal it...


recommend you check your MAP sensor. You will need a voltmeter.
If you don't have a vacuum gage, just use your mouth to pull a vacuum on the hose and see if the voltage drops when you do.
Let me know if you have questions.


OPERATION The Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor, used on 1996-99 vehicles, measures the changes in intake manifold pressure which result from engine load/speed changes, and converts this information to a voltage output. The MAP sensor reading is the opposite of a vacuum gauge reading: when manifold pressure is high, MAP sensor value is high and vacuum is low. A MAP sensor will produce a low output on engine coast-down with a closed throttle while a wide open throttle will produce a high output. The high output is produced because the pressure inside the manifold is the same as outside the manifold, so 100 percent of the outside air pressure is measured.
The MAP sensor is also used to measure barometric pressure under certain conditions, which allows the PCM to automatically adjust for different altitudes.
The MAP sensor changes the 5 volt signal supplied by the PCM, which reads the change and uses the information to control fuel delivery and ignition timing.


TESTING See Figures 1 and 2

  1. Visually check the connector, making sure it is properly connected and that all of its terminals are straight, tight and free of corrosion.
  2. With the ignition ON , check the voltage between terminals A and B (probe the back of the connector to connect to these wires). It should be above 4 volts. Apply 15 in. Hg of vacuum at the MAP vacuum port and check the voltage again. The voltage should be 2 volts now.


jturcotte_326.gif

Fig. Fig. 1: Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor circuit
When pumping up and releasing the vacuum, check to make sure the voltage readings are smooth. When applying vacuum to the sensor, the change in voltage should happen instantly. A slow change in voltage could point to a faulty sensor.


jturcotte_327.gif

Fig. Fig. 2: MAP sensor voltage specifications

  1. If the sensor voltage is not within specification, check for a 5 volt reference at terminal C. If the reference signal is found, the sensor is faulty.
  2. If the sensor and circuits are functional, the PCM may be faulty.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

3.8L (VIN K) Engine
See Figure 4
On these engines, the MAP sensor is mounted to the PCV valve cover.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the MAP sensor electrical connector.
  3. Carefully bend the locking tabs holding the MAP sensor to the PCV valve cover, just enough to remove the MAP sensor.
  4. Pull the MAP sensor straight out of the PCV valve cover.
jturcotte_328.gif

Fig. Fig. 4: On the 3.8L (VIN K) engine, the MAP sensor (1) is mounted in the PCV valve cover (2)

To install:

  1. Make sure that the seal is installed on the MAP sensor and that it is not damaged.
  2. Position and install the MAP sensor to the PCV valve cover. Make sure the locking tabs engage to hold the sensor to the cover.
  3. Attach the sensor electrical connector.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

I SCANNED MY MALIBU & GOT A P0108 WHAT CAN I DO TO RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM


It could just be a bad signal from the MAP sensor or a poor connection at the sensor. Or a bad MAP sensor itself. Maybe the vacuum line is off or broken.

Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor measures the changes in the intake manifold pressure which result from engine load and speed changes, and converts this measurement into a voltage output.

A closed throttle on when the engine is decelerating would produce a relatively low MAP output, while a wide open throttle would produce a high output. Manifold absolute pressure is the opposite of what you would measure on a vacuum gage. When manifold pressure is high, vacuum is low. The MAP sensor is also used to measure barometric pressure under certain conditions, which allows the PCM to automatically adjust for different altitudes.

The PCM sends a 5 volt reference signal to the MAP sensor. As the manifold pressure changes, the electrical resistance of the sensor also changes. By monitoring the sensor output voltage, the PCM can determine the manifold pressure. A higher pressure, low vacuum (high voltage) requires more fuel, while a lower pressure, higher vacuum (low voltage) requires less fuel.

A high or low voltage fault in the MAP sensor circuit should set a DTC P0107 or DTC P0108. If the MAP sensor sends an intermittent zero voltage signal to the PCM, a DTC P0106 will set.

1994 jimmy 4.3 vortec has a stumble right off of idle when accelerating and a hesitation once and awhile at random spaads ussually under load any suggestions?


Do you have an O2 sensor code that would explain a random miss?
Does it happen cold or hot? Have you checked the spark from the coil?

Diagnosis Before beginning any diagnosis and testing procedures, visually inspect the components of the ignition system and engine control systems. Check for the following:
  • Discharged battery
  • Damaged or loose connections
  • Damaged electrical insulation
  • Poor coil and spark plug connections
  • Ignition module connections
  • Blown fuses
  • Damaged vacuum hoses
  • Damaged spark plugs
Check the spark plug wires and boots for signs of poor insulation that could cause crossfiring. Make sure the battery is fully charged and that all accessories are off during diagnosis and testing. Make sure the idle speed is within specification. If an open or ground in the Ignition Control (IC) circuit occurs during engine operation, then engine will continue to run, but using a back-up timing mode (controlled by the ICM) based on preset timing values. The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) or SERVICE ENGINE SOON light will not illuminate at the first appearance of a break in the circuit. However, if the IC fault is still present once the engine is restarted, a Code 42 will set on OBD 1 systems in the PCM and the MIL will illuminate. Poor performance and fuel economy may be noticed while the engine is running under back-up timing. When attempting to search for ignition troubles, keep in mind the various sensor inputs which the PCM uses to calculate timing may affect engine performance. The PCM will alter timing based on sensor inputs as follows:
  • Low MAP output voltage = More spark advance
  • Cold engine = More spark advance
  • High MAP output voltage = Less spark advance
  • Hot engine = Less spark advance
With this in mind, DETONATION could be caused by low MAP output or high resistance in the coolant sensor circuit. POOR PERFORMANCE could be caused by a high MAP output or low resistance in the coolant sensor circuit.
