Replacing TPS will reset the light but will stay in memory until the computer is reset. For help to change throttle body sensor check out you tube :How To Install Replace Throttle Position Sensor Chevy Silverado GMC Sierra.
Check the throttle body for heavy carbon build-up. Remove the air intake(plastic big tube going to the front top of the engine by loosening the big clamp with a screw driver). Gently open the throttle blade and look for heavy black sooty looking deposits. Using throttle plate cleaner from the parts store spray it down and then use a rag to scrub it out, rinsing with the throttle plate cleaner till its all gone. This is a common issue with these trucks, and alot of other vehicles also.
Have you tried to adjust the idle itself to bring it down? The adjustment should be right on the throttle body where the gas pedal is connected to the throttle body. There should be a screw that will allow you to adjust the idle up or down. If you loosen the screw it will take your idle down
on a 2006 it is on the throttle body at the throttle plate. There are actually three TPS sensors in this configuration. One attached to the gas pedal. One attached to the throtle body And, one located inside the top of the engine block. The defective TPS sensor is removable with four screws. American Suzuki has to be a pain in the *** by selling it only as part of the entire throttle body.
The TPS or throttle position sensor is located on the throttle body. It is usually on the right side. There are two wires in a weather pack connector that clip to it. Disconnect the wire connector then remove the two screws ( torqs bite type). When you remove the TPS watch that you don't remove or lose the O ring that seals the throttle shaft. If you lose the O ring this will cause a vacumm leak.
8 bolts...4 on each side witht he frame rails. 3 screws inside fuel filler door.
from underneath...back by the driver side tailiht area you should see a wiring juntion block with i believe 3 connectors...disconnect those. you may also have to loosen or remove the rear bumper for the lower part of the bed to clear. then all u gotta do is gently and evenly lift it off9 with assistants mind you(extra bodies)
