tell me the wire colors going to the MAP sensor. Thanks

Customer:

That sensor on my car seems to have a hose going to it, I do not see wires going to it.

Tracer :

yes, it should have vacuum hose as well as electrical plug. It senses engine vacuum. vary much the same way as a MAF. It will have 4 wires

Sorry I took so long to reply! The colors of those wires are green, orange, tan, & pink.

Customer:

Which ones of those wire do I want to connect the chip to ?
