Need help with sensors!! Pleaseee
 
:banghead: Im sure people have had this problem because my local jeep dealer says it is a problem with many jeep/chrystlers right now. so here goes..i have a 2006 Wrangler SE, 2.4l 4 cyl 6 speed manual and this has happened twice..at interstate speed in 6 gear (55-65 mph) with the AC on the jeep lurched forward and was hard to shift into 5th and 6th gear..but after riding it out for a minute it clears up but the check engine light is on.. the second time it happened the light went off on its own after about 20 miles or so ..had it checked at advanced auto and it says that it is the MAP and TPS sensor correlation at load...i was told that it was the sensors going out first but then was told that its just the correlation between the two and the result may just be the 6th gear interstate speed with AC...my aunt recently got a wrangler too..same year 6 speed but the 4.0L ..you know how our jeeps have the two outlets under the stereo? one has a solid black cap the other says "power outlet"..well supposedly the one that is just black is only for cigarette lightyers..and the guy at the dealership she got hers from said if you plugged any cell phone charger or anything into the cigarette lighter it would fault with the ECU..well i used a car charger in the lighter one (not knowing this untill afterwards) and the guy at advaced auto who is a friend of mine and is extremely engine/electrial smart says that doing that may have messed up the correlation.......Sorry that was soooo long BUT, in conclusion...Does anyone know a fix for this? Anyone experienced the same thing? Please Help!!! id rather not pay the jeep dealership 95 dollars to look at it..78 for a map sensor and 28 for a tps PLUS labor..Thanks for everyones help in advance!!!!!!

About the power ports, I can say with some certainty that the cig lighter would take more juice that any cell charger, radar detector etc. So any ideas about those messing up the ECU
in my opinion is wrong. From what you describe, the TPS I would start with. You stated that it lurches, meaning as if you stepped on or off the gas pedal?

when i let off the gas pedal it lurches forward
