P1100 SCION - BARO Sensor Circuit Malfunction
P1100 SCION Possible Causes
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)
How is the P1100 SCION code repair?Start by checking 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.
What is the cost to diagnose the P1100 SCION code
Labor: 1.0The cost to diagnose the P1100 SCION code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary widely across the country, and even within the same city. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P1100 SCION MeaningThe Barometric (BARO) Pressure Sensor is built into the Engine Control Module (ECM). This is a semiconductor pressure sensor with properties which cause its electrical resistance to change when stress is applied to the sensor’s crystal (silicon) (piezoelectric effect). This sensor is used to detect the atmospheric (absolute) pressure and outputs corresponding electrical signals. Fluctuations in the air pressure cause changes in the intake air density, which can cause deviations in the air-fuel ratio. The signals from BARO sensor are used to make corrections for these fluctuations. If the ECM detects DTC P1100, the fail safe function operates and the atmospheric pressure is set at a constant 760 mmHg.
