Hi, 
  A sensor like TPS is very easy to change. It is located on the Throttle body. (the part that is at the opposite end of the air intake tube from the air box/ filter) The throttle body looks sort of like a small carburetor, if you look on the side of it you wil see a black sensor.. this is the  TPS. It is usually held on by two or three screws and it will have an electrical plug as well.

The tps sensor is located on the throttle body. Follow your air filter system to the throttle body. Should be two screws and a wire connector. You may have to have the transmission codes reset after replacing it.

Hyundai trouble codes p2127


my book shows p2127 code as accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor/switch E-- low input === causes wiring short to ground--APP sensor / switch. IT depends on the manufacturer as to the definition as the TPS can be on the air inlet before the manifold and on others it is at the base of the pedal. Because of the cost I suggest speaking with a dealer service centre to find out where it is and if you can save money by getting a unit from a wrecker that handles you make of vehicle then that is the way to go. Low mileage wrecks will have good units .

I replaced the throttle position sensor on my ,02 hyundai santa fe,now it will not shift gear and check engine light is on with throttle position sensor circuit A high voltage, how can I fix this


how did you know the TPS was bad? did you break anything (vacuum tube, wire connector) during repair? good ground? was it really clean in there when you installed new TPS? i don't know the santa fe, but did you disconnect the battery during this? you may have to reset the OBD system. if you have the OBD tester i think it has this function, or check usere manual, possibly a combination of actions involving ignition, shifter and/or lights.

2004 hyundai santa fe parked it last night, went to use it today and it doesn't accelerate, engine runs fine, no warning lights on dashboard lit, can put it in gear and move it, but absolutely no...


The 04 Santa Fe came with three different engines. 4 cylinder (2.4 lit), and two different V6's (2.7 lit & 3.5 lit). The 2.4 & 2.7 use throttle cables connected directly to the throttle plate, but the 3.5 uses ETS (Electronic Throttle System) which uses two sensors (APS & TPS) and a control module (ETSCM). APS=Accelerator Position Sensor, TPS=Throttle Position Sensor, ETSCM= Electronic Throttle System Control Module. There are different diagnostic procedures for each system.

Accelerator position sensor 2 circuit low voltage


Check wiring connections between ECU and TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). Chances are your TPS has malfunctioned. The ECU (Engine Control Unit) monitors TPS signals at regular intervals. I trust your computer (ECU) to have done it's job... Replace the TPS

best way to find out is look in your owners manual it will tell you. 5000 miles is a newer standerd now days. if it was even newer it would be even longer more like 7500 to 10,000. but your is a little older so im going to go with 5000. but check your book. it also has alot of important info .
