Q: I need to replace my turbocharger boost sensor.

asked by on October 06, 2017

My car has both a MAP sensor and turbo boost sensor. Both look the same. Can I tell them apart by location in the vehicle?

My car has 105000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You have two charge pressure sensors and are labeled sensor 1 located near left rear of motor and has a violet, brown and blue wires going to it. The second sensor is also on left rear of motor and has violet/wht, pink/black and brown wires to it. The code you get will determine what one to replace.
