2003 mazda 6s code P2135 throttle position sensor

I had this code come up the other day. The car seems to run fine... just have the check engine light on. I washed the engine bay the other day, could this have caused the problem. Any other ideas? I do not find any parts or help on line for this part swap. Do they go bad very often..? Thanks for the help.

    My car has the exact same problem. It started out with just the check engine light on (not even constant, sometimes off and on) and now it's solid. It's also causing problems now. My car will lock me out. The panel will light up with all sorts of warnings, traction control, air bag, etc. I can't accelerate when this happens and my car slowly decelerates. I have to pull over, and when I do, my car starts to rev the rpms up and down from 1.25 to 1.5 rpms rapidly. I turn the car off, wait 10 seconds, and start it again, and it's fine. But now the problem's occurring more regularly. I have no fix at this time, other than to replace the TP sensor (my next step) but I just wanted to tell you to beware. Your situation sounds very similar to mine, and will probably go down the same path. I just wanted you to be aware of it.

    I just got the problem fixed by the dealer. It was the same exact thing as mentioned. They said if you don't end up fixing it will cause more problems to the injectors. It was expensive to get the TP sensor change but it was a must. Good luck!

    I had the same problem as rabitfoot -happened once, but was very scary given I was driving 75mph on the freeway. The car was ok after shutoff and restart. My check-eng lite had been on and my mechanica ran the diagnostic and found the issue to be the throttle pedal control sensor. he said I should be ok driving and I was for about week until this happened. So I now have it in to replace the throttle control sensor (Full kit) as well as get my 60k transmission flush, pwr steering flush and and change the spark plugs. Until this time, I had done none of that. the total bill will be over $800 (I think the throttle control fix is around $500-600 alone).

You can change the tps alone. You do not have to change the entire throttle body. It shouldn't be riveted in place, it should have screws or bolts on one side or the other. If it's riveted in place, use a dremmel and grind the rivets off. You can replace rivets with screws on the new unit.

WILL NOT START


sounds like water ingress to either a control module or the coil pack, check all control box locations eg footwells for water and then check the engine bay for loose or naked wires, dry and clean and possibly cover with a plastic bag etc and it should be fine.
