TROUBLESHOOTING MAP SYSTEM

1997 Dodge Stratus

Engine Performance problem
1997 Dodge Stratus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

I am having problems with rough idle and drivability, I ran the codes and I got p0108 I think its the MAP sensor but I am not compleatly shure its not a vacuum leak, or wiring. Can you send me a wiring diagram for 97 dodge stratus 2.5l v6 so I can perform some tests. Thanks

That means that the sensor has been running at 4 volts or more for several seconds.

What would you like a diagram of?

The sensor gets a 5 volt refrence from the PCM and monitors the changes back through the signal wire. Should be very low voltage at idle and high at high speeds or with engine off and key on.

So what I would do is take off the vacucm line and stick my finger on it or use a vaccum guage. Start vehicle and feel for vaccum. Then compare with vaccum from another vaccum line. If its weak the line is bad and needs to be replaced.

It would help to know what wire is gound, signal, etc. Need a diagram for " 97 dodge stratus 2.5l" engine wiring with MAP sensor on it. Thanks

If that is so then it would help to know if its a 2.0 2.4 or a 2.5litre engine

Its a 97 dodge stratus 2.5 litre v6 24v

The 5 volt supply is the violet/white wire
the signal is dark green/red
and the ground circuit is black/light blue

the following is the test to perform when the map sensor voltage is too high as in yoru case.

1. Start engine, and backprobe connecter to find map sensor voltage. If voltage is more then 4.6 volts go to step 5 if its under 4.6 volts go to step 2.

2. Wiggle map sensor harness and see if voltage changes whilst wiggling the harness, if so repair the harness for a short or bad connector on map sensor. If wiggling does nothing go to step 3.

3. Check for a open in the map sensor signal, map sensor internal open, or a open ground in the map sensor circuit, or map sensor harness shorting to power.

4. Turn engien off and the igniiton off. Disconnect MAP sensor electrical connector and connect a jumper between sensor signal circuit and map sensor ground circuit at the map sensor connector. Try to start engine and read map sensor voltage should get no response, if you get no voltage then the map sensor signal circuit is shorted to the map sensor 5volt supply circuit.

5. If map sensor voltage is one volt or more go to next step, if less then one volt replace the map sensor.

6. Move jump wire from MAP to sensor to ground circuit to a good engien ground. Read map sensor voltage with engine running or cranking engine. If voltage is more then one volt go to next step. If less then one volt repair open map sensor ground circuit.

Turn ignition off and disconnect PCM connector. With the ohmmeter check resistance of the MAP sensor cignal circuit between Map sensor connector and PCM connector terminal no 36. If resistance is less then 5 ohms replace pcm if resistance is 5 ohms or more repair open map sensor signal circuit

in another note this is best performed with a scan tool to get the voltage as accurate as possible for testing.
