NO! BOTH cables need to be removed from battery! Or you'll damage the pcm! But skip this at this point.
Cancel that thought and Service Writer's that was a different sensor we were working on. :Oops:
Can you find out what the code number is. I'm guessing it is po106. It may require a quality scanner to diagnose, The dealer doesn't seem to be helping you much. IF there is an independent that is current on technology, may want to take that route.
There may be a vacuum leak causing the problem as the manifold air pressure will be dropped. A vacuum hose disconnected, the seal for the map sensor, a restriction in the vacuum source to the map. Check the connector at the map as well for tightness, corrosion, damage.
A little carb or throttle cleaner spray or propane torch unlit but opened valve can help uncover a vacuum leak. But going around the intake or vacuums to the map or map may uncover it as the idle will changed when it sucks in the combustable.
The sensor chould give.8-2 volts to be in spec. There is refernce to a possible throttle body issue that can trigger this codes. The Throttle plate may be activated electronically and you don't want it to shut while you have anything in the throttle bore. Might be worth taking the air snorkel off an taking a look at the throttle body for damage.
