Question about 1996 Chevrolet Lumina Mini
Thank you for your suggestion(s). How do I test the throttle position sensor?
Their is a few ways to test the throttle position sensor. One way is to hook up a scaner and go to the data menu. Their will be a place in the menu that will say tps % and tps v. You want to watch the one with the v. The v stands for volts from the t.p.s. Basicly the t.p.s. is a variable resistor. The further you depress the the throttle the more or less volts you get from the t.p.s. The voltage should gradualy go up as you slowly depress the pedal. If the voltage jumps around then the t.p.s. is bad. Another way is to get a volt meter and remove the connector to sensor, touch the contacts on the sensor with the sensor still hooked up and have a friend depress the pedal slowly.
You can find the tps on the opposite side of the cable on the throttle.
Please contact me if you have any more questions or comments.
