SOURCE: is it possible to adjust a throttle position sensor on a 2000 montero sport?

when your vehical throws a code and you replace the defective part, you must clear the code or the ecm will still recognize it as an active code.

SOURCE: Bad throttle position sensor

TPS is right on the throttle body The shaft that operates the inlet butterfly passes through it. There are two torx screws holding it on. There is no adjustment so it is a bolt on item. (think it's about $50)

P0222 and p0121 troubleshooting


FIRST AND FORMOST do not listen to any advice the totally unqualified parts guys hand out at Autozone or any other free code reader parts store, they want to sell you parts and that is all.

P0222 VOLKSWAGEN - Throttle Pedal Position Sensor/Switch 'B' Circuit Low
Possible causes- Throttle position sensor harness is open or shorted
- Throttle position sensor poor electrical connection
- Faulty Throttle position sensor
When is the code detected?An excessively low voltage from the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM).

P0121 VOLKSWAGEN - Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch 'A' Circuit Range/Performance
Possible causes- Faulty throttle position sensor
- Throttle position sensor harness is open or shorted
- Throttle position sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) When is the code detected?Malfunction is detected when an excessively low or high voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM.

Have the VW dealer complete the diagnosis on this.

Make sure you installed the correct TP sensor. If so you may have a bad one. I have gotten bad "new" parts before. If all your problems started with the installed part start there.

Check engine light just came on


I had the same issue...I went to Auto Zone and got a diagnostic...Came back that mt Throttle Position Sensor was faulty...However after taking it to the dealer, and paying 135.00 for their diagnostic...You can't simply buy the sensor. You have to buy a new Throttle Body at 902.00 + Tax. I hope it's not your problem, but go get a FREE diagnostic first.

MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON LAST NIGHT AND I CANT FIGURE OUT WHY, I WENT TO CHECK THE SPARK PLUGS AND I CANT FIND THEM


ok dizzydean, u need to have the engine codes read. Most parts stores will do this for free, and will explain what could be wrong. They will plug a scan tool into a plug under your dash to read codes stored in the cars computer.
