Map sensor

Asked by Aug 10, 2017 at 10:46 PM about the 2002 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SL1 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have been through 3 map sensors in the past 2
months. I was told that they keep shorting out. And
that I could wire in a resistor. Would anyone care to
help me out with how to wire it in, or is there a
better way to fix this issue? Any help is appreciated.

Yeah hi Devin are you going to the auto parts store to get your parts because if you are it's a mistake cuz I did that with a Firebird I owned and I went through three different map sensors and they finally gave me one that was like not a recondition part it was brand new and I think that did the trick but they play the game and they give you the cheapest part possible making you spend 200 and it probably cost them $50 to produce cuz it's remanufactured I'd recommend going to a Chevy dealership and getting the part if it's possible because if you get an originally made the OEM part from GM that's produced manufactured in Japan cuz I had a Saturn and I had a throttle position sensor that was going out on me and I replaced it and I went to the dealership and got a quality one from the dealership and it was manufactured in Japan might have made a difference and once I put that in I didn't have any issues so what I recommend is going to the Chevy dealership and trying to get the OEM part it saves you a lot of trouble cuz they're just offering junk when it comes to expensive Parts they usually try to rip you off at these auto parts stores at least O'Reilly does good luck.
