I'll try and explain my situation from where it began. I bought my AEM EMS a while ago from a mt.net member and it came with a Honda MAP sensor. After installing it and wiring it up I found the ecu reading a retarded number for the MAP psi, like 23k something so I assumed my sensor was faulty or that I could not wire it correctly since I didn't know what model or year it came from. If you aren't familiar with the AEMPro software is has a MAP sensor wizard, which you just select the sensor manufacturer or part number from and it loads the settings for it.
Well there is only one sensor that Honda uses and with it selected, still no luck, so I decided I'd just buy a GM 3 bar, which I purchased from this link http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=180176270928
. It's part# 12223861. I wired it up using the pinout he sent with it, and wired it to my ECU harness, which requires me to use 2K for my 5v (power), 4F for my MAP input (signal), and I tried using both 2C for a sensor ground and then my own ground to the engine bay. My sensor is reading a much smaller number now, with it selected in the sensor wizard within AEM. I changed my MAP input to MAP Voltage and besides that I left the values as the wizard had set them. It reads -8.5 psi with no vacuum line attached, just the ignition on. I had bryantaylor come by and do what he does best (suck and blow baby
) and it jumped 3 psi so my sensor is definitely getting a reading based off pressure. Jk by the way bryan, hehe. I tried uploading TurboTim's map from EMS and although he uses the same exact sensor I'm still getting the same -8.5 psi. I used a voltmeter and checked the wires at the pigtail and they're reading correctly.
I read something about changing offfset to compensate for altitude and such that could affect the pressure read by the sensor. So I fooled around a bit and got it pretty damn close to 0 psi, but then I couldn't get it to read when I tried sucking on the nipple on the MAP. I duno if it's just my weak lungs or if the sensor is buggy now that I changed both the sensor offset and scalar. The offset is actually maxed out now at 32.77 and the scalar is at 5.5. I'll upload a few pics of what I'm seeing just to help. First is with the default map with just the wizard's settings, second is with the offset and scalar adjusted.
Basically, I wanna know why my sensor is reading like this. Is my sensor not wired correctly? My EMS not working correctly? Thanks a bunch in advance, help me get my car boosted!
PS: wanted to say huge thanks to TurboTim and bryantaylor for all the help they've already given me.
