Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor Signal Lower Than Expected
Table of contents
P1128 ACURA Possible Causes
- Engine mechanical condition
- Faulty Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor
- Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor circuit poor electrical connection
How do I fix code P1128 ACURA?
Check the “Possible Causes” listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector’s pins.
Cost of diagnosing the P1128 ACURA code
The cost of diagnosing the P1128 ACURA code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary by location, your vehicle’s make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

P1128 ACURA Description
The Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor senses manifold absolute pressure (vacuum) and converts it into electrical signals. The MAP sensor outputs low signal voltage at high-vacuum (idling) and high signal voltage at low-vacuum (throttle valve wide open).
The engine control module (ECM) compares a predetermined MAP value at a given throttle position and manifold absolute pressure to the output voltage value of the MAP sensor.
If the MAP sensor outputs lower voltage than expected, the ECM detects a malfunction and stores a DTC.
