Hello. Your vehicle is equipped with two boost pressure sensors. One at the front of the engine near the throttle body, and one at the rear of the engine. I would verify that the boost sensor you replaced is the correct one, for engine bank A. It may also be possible that there is an issue with the sensors’ electrical circuit, perhaps due to a wiring issue or poor contact at the connector, or even with the circuit inside the engine computer. In some cases the fault can occur inside the computer’s circuit board, which would require repair or replacement of the computer. I would start by making sure the correct sensor has been replaced, and that the circuit is functioning correctly. If you are unsure I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to diagnose what the cause of your boost sensor fault may be.
