Barometric Pressure Sensor

The Barometric Pressure Sensor, sometimes called a High Altitude Compensator (HAC), measures the atmospheric pressure. Atmospheric pressure varies with weather and altitude. At higher elevations the air is less dense, therefore, it has less pressure. In addition, weather changes air pressure. This sensor operates the same as the MAP sensor except that it measures atmospheric pressure. It is located inside the ECM. If it is defective, the entire ECM must be replaced.
