Question about 2001 Kia Rio
The TPS is usually located on the inlet manifold at the rear of the engine.If you look at where the accelerator cable connects to the throttle housing it should be there. It's held on by 2 torx or hex head screws & has a wiring block connector with 3 wires going in to it. This connector should simply pull off when you squeeze the clasp. You didnt say which engine you have but the TPS is similar across the range. You must make sure the ignition is off when unplugging it otherwise you will generate a fault code in the Engine Managment System. Once replaced switch the ignition on for 5 seconds & then switch off. This should position the sensor ready to start the engine.

check the belt,if its out it will flag up this code,your car will run on sequential firing from the crankshaft sensor,failing that put an oscilloscope on the signal wire at the sensor and ecu its possible the ecu might not be seeing the signal,start with the basics first

if you have high resistance in secondary ign. system (plug wires, ign.coil) this will cause this code to set. make sure you are using a high quality spark plug wire set. not from autozone!!! and denso non platinum tipped spark plugs. also use a diaelectric grease on plug wires to keep moisture out.

This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.I hope this helps you

The Camshaft Position Sensor tells the PCM (computer) the position of the Camshaft Position. This Sensor sychronized along with several other Sensors including the Crankshaft Position Sensor the firing of the electronics to the spark plugs of each cylinder.
It is not difficult to replace and relatively inexpensive.
1. Disconnect the Negative side of the Battery,
2. Locate the Sensor and unplug.
3. Remove the Position Sensor retaining bolt.
4. Pull out the Sensor.
Replacement is reverse of above order.
Hint: use fresh engine oil on the end/sides of the Sensor especially around the rubber o-ring(s) to ease pushing the Sensor into proper position.

it sounds like you have bigger problems if your car does not crank(turn over) then your timing belt could have broken and the one piston could be hitting a valve causing it to be locked up.normally when any sensor is bad car engine still cranks it just doesn't start.
