1 Answer

Map Sensor (Manifold Absolute Press.)

I have a bad Map Sensor on my 03 zx2. Is this something I can change by myself? If so does anyone know where it is located?

    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




    5-VOLT SUPPLY CIRCUIT SHORT TO VOLTAGE




    5-VOLT SUPPLY CIRCUIT SHORT TO SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT




    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?

    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

    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.

    Map sensor bad and can't find one


    A manifold absolute pressure sensor (MAP) is one of the sensors used in an internal combustion engine's electronic control system. Engines that use a MAP sensor are typically fuel injected. The manifold absolute pressure sensor provides instantaneous manifold pressure information to the engine's electronic control unit (ECU). This is necessary to calculate air density and determine the engine's air mass flow rate, which in turn is used to calculate the appropriate fuel flow. (See stoichiometry.)
    An engine control system that uses manifold absolute pressure to calculate air mass uses the speed-density method. Engine speed (RPM) and air temperature are also necessary to complete the speed-density calculation. Not all fuel-injected engines use a MAP sensor to infer mass air flow; some use a MAF (mass air flow) sensor. Several makes use the MAP sensor in OBD II applications to test the EGR valve for functionality. Most notably General Motors uses this approach.
