    can a crapped out map or tps sensor make a car cease running? i suspect mine is bad because there is a burnt wire comming off the Map on my 91 crx so i was just looking for one more reason why it could be dead
    thanks

    Mine ran without the tps, definetly did not run as good, but it ran. If it is disabled the computer has a preprogrammed set of instructions to use when it does not work. If the wire is burnt, run a new wire from the sensor to the computer. The map sensor I am not sure, the combination of the two not working could maybe do it.

    You can use a ohm meter to figure out if the wire is bad, just tap into the wire harness where the map sensor is, and find that wire next to the computer. If there is continuity, your good. If there is none, then get some extra wire and run a new one over.

    neither of the sensors are misson-critical. the car will run. it will run liek dog shit, but ti will fire up and run.
