Question about 2007 Honda Civic GX NGV Sedan
Check engine light and VSA lights are on. I got the codes ran and it says its the throttle position sensor. I wired subs up and pulled some fuses but they all seem to be fine. Is there andything that could have thrown this code or does the throttle body just need replaced?
thanks i have a 2007 si and was seeing alot the same prob. although i have lots of add ons. my light came on when i had a fuel ignition controller and harness hooked up to my car. so i took off the wiring harness and the light went off i then checked the harness for shorts and found no shorts then i put it back on without the f.i.c. hooked up and it still came back on so i took off the wiring harness and ran without the f.i.c. for a few months without a problem then out of the blue when i thought it was the harness it came on without it. TWICE. so now i am leaning towards a bad power signal being it only happens when every few months and more often when my wiring harness is on. so i am going to try a better grounding sys. and possibly a supply upgrade and i will let you know how it goes.
The TPS (Throttle Position Sensor as it is sometimes called) is located
on the throttle body. It detects the position of the throttle, and hence
is probably the most direct input a rider has to the BMS-C.

You can replace the TPS without replacing the whole throttle body.
The TPS is held in by rivets instead of screws. Just use a hacksaw to carefully cut slots in the top of the rivets so you can use a screwdriver to back them out. When you put the new TPS in just use standard screws. Thanks

Go to any auto parts store and you can use the meter to see what code it comes up with, The meter has the codes on it and will tell you why the check engine light is coming on.
