1999 Nissan Altima MAP sensor location

I am trying to replace the MAP sensor due to a P1105 code, but can't locate the sensor it is not in the repair manual.

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 2 Answers

The MAP sensor is located on the driver's side of the engine compartment next to the air filter housing and shock tower.
It is a small plastic component with one vacuum hose coming off of it and an electrical connector that has two wires. It might be advantageous to write in and let me and/or other techs know what the symptoms are prior to replacing the sensor. Sometimes just replacing the part is a waste of money. The fact that the code has indicated the problem is the MAP sensor, doesn't mean it is bad. As an example, check to see if the Vacuum hose is secure and not disconnected or split at either end.
Good luck.

Enter vehicle, close and lock all doors.
slowly insert and remove key from ignition 6 times within 10 seconds. The tail lamps will flash to indicate original code has been erased. Turn ignition to the ACC position.
Press any button on 1st transmitter.
Hazard lamps will flash to confirm programming.
TO enter additional transmitters, unlock then lock the doors using the power lock switch located on the driver door.
Press any button on additional transmitter (up to 4 tansmitters total possible). Hazard lamps will flash to confirm programming.
open the driver's door.
Turn ignition off.

You must re-program all existing transmitters as this process erases codes from car.

replacing windshield wiper bushing nissan altima 99

I can't seem to pop the bushing into the windshield wiper arm on the drivers side. Is there any easy and quick way to do this?

  • Most Helpful of 1 Answers

This bushing is a pain to install, i have done many of these and end up messing them up before i get one on, to tell you the truth it does not last.I have tried to save customers money by installing the bushing and it comes back to bite me, they get mad because the wiper linkage fell off again in the rain, the sad part was that they were advised that the fix may not hold but they agreed to it to save money, i then found out that the linkage arm could be replaced , it only costs 12.00.
there are many auto part stores that sell it even the dealer, Dorman is one company, you can google it.
The way i get these bushings on it by applying a little grease around bushing and then with two sockets and a vise, i then press bushing into arm. good day hope this is helpful.

99 Nissan Altima blower fan works only on highest setting (#4)

I have 99 Nissan Altima in which the heater/defrost fan only works on the highest setting or #4. Is it the rotary switch on the dash, the blower, or the voltage reducing ciruit etc. Whats the history on this car in this area when it fails.Where do I look first and is it fairly easy to do. I'm very handy in fixing cars , I just need to be pointed in the right direction by somebody with experience with this model. Thanks.

Resistor switch. The rotary switch on the dash is very, very uncommon. It is also not the blower, because it works.

My horn stopped working in my 1999 Nissan Altima.

My horn stopped working in my 1999 Nissan Altima. I located my fuse panel/box. The label on the inside of the fuse panel/box does not list HORN, therefore I'm not sure which fuse to check for the horn. I checked them all and could not locate any blown fuses. Should there be a fuse for my horn?

Sounds like the blower resistor module needs to be replaced. Could also be the switch.
