Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I would expect unplugging the MAP sensor to cause a change in idle but it may or may not be an issue. Unplugging the MAP sensor wouldn't be a valid test for anything in any event.

No description of the actual problem you're trying to diagnose had posted with the question. What kind of problem are you having?
