How to Test a Map Sensor?

Answer

Map sensors monitor the air flow of your car and to maintain it. To test a map sensor you should unhook the sensor's wiring harness. Attach jumper cables to the sensor and turn the ignition to On. Now you can get a reading on the map sensor.

MAP sensor is abbreviated as Manifold Absolute Pressure sensors.To test the MAP sensor apply vacuum to the vacuum port through the hand vacuum pump.With 5 volts to the reference wire , the output voltage of the analog MAP should drop.An analog voltage can be read by Voltmeter or oscilloscope.
A MAP sensor measures the vacuum, which is the pressure inside the intake manifold of a running engine. As it is an important part in the healthy functioning of a vehicle, verifying it is crucial. Testing a MAP sensor will require the following: a multimeter, a vacuum pump, a wire piercing probe and a scan tool. First you should check if the sensor produces a signal. This should be done independently from the engine vacuum, using a vacuum pump. Next you should test whether the sensor is getting power with a multimeter. Then go on to checking the ground point of the circuit. Based on the results of these three simple tests you can asset whether you need to replace the MAP sensor or not.
