Generic code results from http://www.obd-codes.com/p0105 :

P0105 - MAP Circuit Malfunction

Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Circuit Malfunction

The MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor is part of the fuel management system. It reacts to changes in engine manifold pressure. The PCM (Powertrain Control Module) monitors the MAP sensor continually to properly run the engine. Changes in engine load require changes in the amount of fuel injected, and timing of the ignition system, etc. An engine under load has more manifold pressure(or less vacuum) than an engine that is coasting. As the load changes, the MAP sensor voltage signal to the PCM changes accordingly. To check the MAP sensor operation, though, the PCM watches other sensors to verify that the MAP sensor is working properly.

For example, the PCM compares the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) signal to the MAP signal to verify the MAP signal isn't "sticking". If the PCM doesn't see a MAP sensor change immediately follow a change in the throttle pedal sensor, it knows there is a problem with the MAP sensor and sets P0105. Or, if the PCM notices that the TPS indicates the engine is under load, but the MAP signal indicates that the engine is "coasting" it, again, knows there is a problem with the MAP sensor or TPS and sets P0105.

Symptoms of a P0105 check engine light code may include:

  • Poor running engine
  • Engine runs rich
  • Engine won't idle
  • Engine backfires through tailpipe
  • Engine misfire under load or at idle
  • MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) illumination
  • In some extreme cases there may be no symptoms other than MIL illumination

A P0105 DTC could be caused by:

  • MAP sensor vacuum hose disconnected or plugged
  • Bad MAP sensor
  • Bad TPS
  • Damaged or problematic MAP sensor connector
  • Damaged or problematic TPS connector
  • Damaged wiring
  • Short to reference voltage on signal circuit of MAP sensor
  • Loss of ground to MAP sensor or TPS
  • Open on signal circuit of MAP sensor
  • Bad PCM

Using a scanner or code reader, turn the ignition on and engine OFF; what does the MAP sensor voltage read? It should be about 4 Volts for sea level. If you are at a higher altitude, it should decrease about half a volt or so for each 1,000 ft. of altitude (this will vary from model to model) Or if you have a separate MAF (Mass air flow) sensor on your vehicle, they are usually equipped with a Barometric pressure reading. If so, the Baro reading should match the MAP reading (they both measure ambient air pressure). If they're roughly equal, then, check for Freeze Frame data of the MAP sensor (if available).

NOTE: Freeze Frame data is the PCM recording a fault when it happens. It captures the readings of the various PIDS (parameter identifiers)available to troubleshoot what happened. It's like a recording of the problem as it happened. At idle a typical MAP sensor Voltage reading should be about a volt, and at WOT (wide open throttle) it should approach 4.5 to 5 Volts. As for the TPS, at idle, the voltage reading is about 1 Volt or less. As the throttle is opened the reading will increase to 4.5 Volts at WOT. Do the two readings make sense? For example, if the TPS reading on Freeze Frame data shows 2.5 Volts (indicating partial throttle) does the MAP sensor indicate a reading that isn't at either extreme? Using the Freeze Frame data (if available) compare the MAP reading to the TPS when the problem occurred. This can help you identify what happened

If you have no access to Freeze Frame data then check if the MAP sensor voltage changes when you apply vacuum to it. You can do this by mouth or a vacuum pump. The voltage should increase as you apply vacuum. If the reading doesn't change as you apply vacuum, make sure there are no obstructions in the hose to the sensor. If the hose is clear, the MAP sensor is usually bad, but it doesn't rule out the following from causing the problem: Does the MAP sensor appear to be stuck at less than .5 Volts? Then:

NOTE: This code shouldn't set if the MAP is stuck at extremely low voltage, however, I'm adding it in because there's no way to know for certain for which vehicles a low voltage condition may set a P0105.

  1. Inspect the wiring harness and MAP sensor connector. Repair any damage
  2. Unplug the MAP sensor connector. Also, at the PCM connector, remove the MAP sensor signal wire and check for continuity to the MAP sensor connector. If there is infinite resistance, then repair open in MAP signal circuit. If the signal wire has continuity to the MAP sensor connector, then check for 5 volt reference voltage to the connector and a good ground. If both are present, then re-install all removed wiring and replace the MAP sensor.

Does the MAP sensor appear to be stuck at full 4.5 voltage? Then:

  1. Inspect the wiring harness for damage. Repair as needed
  2. Remove the MAP sensor signal wire from the PCM connector. With a voltmeter measure the voltage with KEY ON ENGINE OFF. Is there 4.5 Volts? If so, unplug the MAP sensor and recheck. If it is still present, then repair short between the signal wire and 5 volt reference wire.
  3. If unplugging the MAP sensor causes the voltage to disappear, check that the ground is intact. If it is, then replace the MAP sensor due to internal short.

How to turn off light emmis maint in Cherokee 1990


4.0L engine? USA car?
The check engine light. (no photos by you of lamp)
there are 4 ways.
on all cars made. CEL reset.... if present.
1: pull battery (on newer cars, radio bricks out)
2: push reset button on the scan tool. (a special tool you cant buy)
3: correct the error, then it self corrects light (called driving them off,)
4: remove the memory fuse. to the ECU , and this resets all codes.
fuse F15 red wire feed to ecu PIN 3 is it. 1991 year model up.

most 1990s are the French EFI system called RENIX.
im answering both ways due to not knowing true build dates.

system 2: July 1 ,build dates (new fed, laws this day)
NO, the above is wrong on this day, this engine is pre-OBD1
there is no CEL lamp until 1991, but if car was made near July1 or or after,1990, who knows what is there.???

I guess you mean the old and now very silly 1990s
leaded gasoline timer, the so called get cars emissions checked.
baCK in the day with 1/2 gas had lead.
the check is a Cat converter test.
remove it. remove the timer and trash it is the correct steps.
it is useless now,
it's just a time clock, the goes off. (miles i think)
i removed mine back in 1988.

CTS 2009 Reset, recurring of fuel gauge and engine light issue ?


I would first try to do a hard reset which means disconnecting your battery for 24 hours, that solves more problems than you would imagine.
Good luck.

What are these codes in toyota rav 4 PO171 PO105 PO760 PO 770 PO130 PO171


OBD=11
code p0171 refers to system to lean---causes ---intake/ exhaust leak---air system---MAF/VAF sensor---fuel pressure/ pump---injectors HO2s
code po105 refers to manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor/bar ometric sensor and circuit malfunction causes---wiring---MAP sensor ECM
code p0760 refers to shift solenoid--circuit malfunction causes--shift solenoid---ECM?TCM
code po770 again refers to shift solenoid.
code p0171 again refers to shift solenoid ---performance or stuck off.
code po130 refers to heated oxygen sensor HOS2 1 bank 1-circuit and have the rest checked .malfunction -- causes---heating inoperative---poor connection---wiring--- HO2S. So replace the shift solenoid and oxygen sensor

Check engine light code p1150


Code 1150 for a Lexus means the O2 sensor for bank two sensor one is not working. It could be a problem with the sensor or the wiring harness. Bank two is on the side of the engine with cylinder two, and sensor one is in front of the catalytic converter.

If the light is on, that means a trouble code is stored in the computer. Get the code and you'll have a starting point for diagnosis. The fact that it comes back on after resetting means you haven't fixed the underlying problme.

I have a 2000 oldsmobile alero, the check engine light is on. advanced auto said its a po105 problem, what does this mean


P0105 - MAP Sensor Circuit Insufficient Activity.If it is the 3.4 or 3.1L engine The Map sensor is located towards the back of the engine by the coil packs.Would verify that it is plugged in and also that the vaccum line going to it is not cracked,If all this checks ok then map sensor may need replaced.

I have fault codes po105,p1105,p0100,p0234,what is the most likely cause?


The missing codes may be Saab-specific but two were found:
- P0105= MAP/BARO Circuit Malfunction - P1105 not listed - P0100 " " - P0234= Engine Overboost Condition
If in the US or Canada, check with a chain auto parts store, they may have all of the codes.
Hope that helps-

these faults have no relation to watery gas... it sounds like it has a loose connection at the battery or a high resistance in one of the terminals
