P0107 - Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Circuit Low Input

The Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor responds to changes in the intake manifold pressure (vacuum). 5 Volts is supplied to the sensor from the PCM (powertrain control module). Inside the MAP sensor is a resistor that moves in relation to manifold pressure. The resistor varies the voltage between about 1 volt to 4.5 volts (depending on engine load) and that voltage signal is returned to the PCM to indicate manifold pressure (vacuum). This signal is essential for the PCM to determine fuel delivery. A P0107 DTC is set when the PCM sees that the MAP signal voltage is less than .25 volts which is too low.

Potential Symptoms: Anytime the MAP sensor signal is low the vehicle will likely have a very difficult time starting. Other symptoms may include:
* Hard to start
* Long cranking times
* Sputtering/missing
* Blowing black smoke
* Poor fuel economy
* Dies intermittently
* MIL(Malfunction Indicator Lamp) illumination

Causes: The causes of a low MAP sensor signal circuit (P0107) could be any of the following:
* Bad MAP sensor
* Open or short in the signal circuit
* Open or short in the 5 Volt reference circuit
* Ground circuit open or shorted
* Bad PCM

Possible Solutions: First, using a scan tool with the Key on and engine running, monitor the MAP sensor voltage. If it is reading less than .5 volts, turn engine off, unplug the MAP sensor and, using a DVOM (Digital Volt/Ohm Meter) check for 5Volts on the 5 Volt reference circuit.

1. If there is not 5 Volts on the reference circuit, then check for the reference voltage at the PCM connector. If it is present at the PCM connector but not the MAP connector, repair the open in the reference circuit between the PCM and MAP harness connector. If 5 Volt reference is NOT present at the PCM connector, check powers and grounds of PCM and repair/replace as needed. (NOTE: On Chrysler products, a shorted Crank sensor, Vehicle speed sensor or any other sensor that utilizes the 5 Volt reference from the PCM can short out the 5 Volt reference. To fix simply unplug each sensor one at a time until the 5 Volt reference reappears. The last sensor unplugged is the shorted sensor.)

2. If you have a 5 Volt reference at the MAP connector, jumper the 5 volt reference circuit to the signal circuit. Now check the MAP voltage on the scan tool. It should be 4.5 to 5 Volts. If it is, replace MAP sensor. If not, repair open/short in the signal circuit wiring and re-check.

3. If all appears okay, perform a wiggle test. Start engine and manipulate the harness, connector and tap on the MAP sensor. Note any changes in voltage or engine speed. Repair connector, harness, or sensor as needed.

4. If the wiggle test checks out, use a vacuum pump (or just use your lungs) to draw a vacuum on the MAP sensor vacuum port. As you add vacuum the voltage should decrease. With no vacuum, the MAP sensor should read approximately 4.5 volts. If there is no change in MAP sensor reading on the scan tool, replace MAP sensor.

MAP Sensor DTC's: P0105, P0106, P0107, P0108 and P0109.

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

Why does it squeal when cold?

anne, are you a mechanic or asking for hubbY
are you hands on person, willing to learn?
i be not. so why ask at all.?
why not do what 99% do , get it serviced.
you think blind guessing fixes cars?
well you tell is then, its 1 in 100 shot.
how told you that a real ASE mech,
no ,he'd have corrected it now. and you'd not be here. right.
so its RUMOR< Mr/ RUMOR told me belt is ok
i say 50% bunk.,that.
belts in fact get hard with age and make noise.
for sure cold , its harder.

this is not a guess. its a list of common failures.
1; bad belt, gee its cheap fix if i guess right.
2: not tensioned correctly or the tension or is bad.
3: the pump/alt ,p/s, or a/c compr. bearing are bad.
4: bent accessory brakes, or broke causing belt disaligment and squeeels.
5: wrong belt. (too long as many stores sell)
6: a belt from fleabay china for $3, a POS.
7: defective pulleys. bent or cracked (any )idlers.

guess what, we cant just guess , takes looking
and finding and testing....
and am not doing 101 on that.

What are DTC P0107 and P0108 for this vehicle?

Use your computer Google or whatever & type:


Just learn how OBD2 Systems work, because codes
have nothing to do with installing parts

You have to know how the vehicles systems & components
work & how to test them

You only replace parts when you find a problem & a part fails
a test or data is not correct

You need knowledge & professional scan tool to even work
on any vehicle since 1981

Note: It is possible for this code to set if the engine is left running while the hood is open for an extended period in a warm climate.

Possible Causes:

Inspect for low coolant level or for an incorrect coolant mixtureCheck the operation of the thermostat (it may be stuck open)TSB 01-064 (9/11/01) contains a repair procedure for this code

DTC Code P0107

Continuous diagnostic trouble code P0107 indicated barometric pressure out of range low was detected during normal operation.

Possible cause
- faulty internal BARO sensor (PCM)

Perform KOEO On-Demand Self Test.
Is P0107 present?
No, P0107 is intermittent fault. CLEAR DTC. If DTC reappears, REPLACE PCM.

If you keep getting it, a new PCM is the only fix.

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.

Sounds like a vacumn leak. Gasket under intake plenum may be leaking. Be sure the pcv valve has the o-ring around it in the correct place also as it will set a code.

How to determine the error p0107 and p108

p0107/108 is a MAP error .. thats manafold absolute pressure .. or in the old days we just called it vacuum .. the MAP sensor measures the vacuum in the intake manafold and that information is used by the computer to adjust the fuel mixture and ignition timing ... if the MAP sensor output is too low ot too high then it will trigger an error .. also if it doesnt agree within reason with the throttle position sensor ..that will also trigger an error .. look for a clogged air filter, a bad vacuum leak or just a bad MAP sensor ..
