Check Engine Light

P1105 code definition

The P1105 code is a manufacturer specific powertrain code that means the engine control module (ECM) has detected a fault or malfunction with the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP)/Barometric (BARO) pressure switch solenoid valve.

Codes related to the P1105 include:

What the P1105 code means

A code P1105 will be stored when the voltage signal from the MAP/BARO pressure switch that received by the engine control module (ECM) is too high or too low.

The ECM uses the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor to read manifold pressure and calculate air density and air mass flow rate. This information then determines how much fuel metering is needed for combustion. The MAP/BARO switch solenoid valve is used to switch the airflow passage based on voltage signals sent by the ECM.

Some Nissan vehicles will have the MAP sensor is built into the ECM.

  • Visually inspect the electrical wiring for corrosion or signs of damage
  • Check electrical connectors, harness, and relays for signs of damage
  • Check vacuum line for tears or leaks
  • Check for damaged or defective MAP sensor
  • Use a vacuum testing device to check BARO sensor
  • Check MAP pressure switch for power and signal

Common mistakes when diagnosing the P1105 code

One common mistake when diagnosing a P1105 code is replacing the sensors without checking for any leaks or electrical connection issues first.

How serious is the P1105 code?

Because a vehicle’s safe driving operation most likely will be impacted due to faults that store a P1105 code, this code is considered a potentially serious code.

  • Repair or replace damaged, corroded, open, or shorted electrical wiring and related connectors
  • Repair or replace leaking vacuum lines
  • Replace damaged or defective MAP sensor
  • Replace damaged or defective BARO sensor
  • Replace damaged or defective ECM
  • Clear all codes, test-drive the vehicle, and rescan to see if any codes reappear
