I don't know why you would replace all the coils,I do know,
but I don't do diagnostics that way.

The TACM (throttle actuator control motor) is part of the
throttle body, and can not be replaced

The PO2104,PO2107,PO2110,PO2111, are TACM related codes
I won't write a book on it,you got what they are, from your
friends scan tool

If all the coils are good,then they are not spiking the PCM,
coming back on the TPS Sensor and putting it into ETC Failsafe
(that senerio the dealers are not up on )

I would buy some CRC Throttle Body Cleaner, and spray the
throttle plate, won't fix your issues, but does on a ford explorer

Hopefully you can slowly move the throttle plate and free it up
The throttle body is about $470,up from $325 a year ago,from
a dealer.
It only has 4 ,10mm bolts,so you can solve this at home

Forget the Cam Code for now

I would back probe the TPS Sensor, with a couple needles,
and use your volt meter to check
It has two sides--0v to 5v & 5v to 0v

one 5v ref from pcm,one ground, you can stay on,and red lead
to either of the other wires to test TSP voltage drop,eg .5v to 4.9v
when moving throttle plate

I will check back with you or give you my #

Hello, I will try to get this shadetree enough so we both can understand it. I found articles for this defect going past 2 years, so I imagine nothing new has been invented to fix it.

The Code 2104 is only showing that a secondary part was trying to adjust the idle because the primary part was not doing the job. They call it an Accelerator Paddle Positon sensor, an APP for short. I can't say if it is the same as a TPS.

The Primary part that needs fixing is the Throttle plate (body). Thats your Code 2111 and it means the throttle plates are sticking in the bore, your TAC motor is crosswired, or the Harness connector for the TAC is shorted together. The TAC is the electric valve combination built into the Intake and it looks like a miniature starter, round and elongnated. It deals with venting airflow.

The TAC, wiring harness connectors, and throttle plates are all something a shadetree can clean or inspect. Make sure the TPS you installed was properly in the slot at the Butterfly shaft. Check the small screws or rivets in each Butterfly flap as a loose Butterfly valve can jam in the bore.

Basically everything is saying the throttle is not closing to where it belongs according to the other sensors and that it is not synchronized with other moving parts. It is always open too much. I am thinking the engine is getting too much air.

Now after checking those items, if nothing is shorted,loose or binding they say you need to have the PCM tested or reprogrammed. I am thinking it might be worthwhile to buy a PCM Relay and stick it in. You can do it first or last, but as a last ditch effort to avoid a Dealer I would try it.

I would like to know what finally fixed your truck as I see some Solutions but no verifications.

The code is P0125 insufficient coolant temperature for closed loop control excessive simple fix replace the termostat the engine coolant temperature(for ECM) is rarely the problem play it safe a go ahead and replace it but above all else do the thermostat if the ECT is correct it means the thermostat is open

SOURCE: Have a 2005 ford explorer showing a code p2111 accidently washed motor using a degreaser turns on with problems. changed the throttle position sensor, throttle body motor, and the ignition coil. when

This Code means there is a difference between the throttle body flap angle and the settings for it. Try disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes and see if it will refresh for the new parts.

There is a small adjustment for the TPS in the slotted end hole for the mount. Also check if you have successfully installed the TPS to the throttle shaft.

I do not know if the lack of power was before or after the change in parts. There is an Ignition Relay or the ECC Relay or Diode which could cut off power. Those should be in a Powerbox, usually as a trio.

Would like a final comment on the cure- others may have this same problem and I would be able to help them from what you tell me.

Linc LS v8 05 will not excellerate only idle,scan code #p2104, p2111, what's going on.

code p 2104 refers to throttle actuator control(TAC) system--forced idle mode===causes ---wiring--TAC motor--ALL sensor--ECM
codes p 2111 refers to throttle actuator control (TAC) system--actuator stuck open====causes --throttle body--throttle valve tight tight/ sticking
also refers to TAC system --circuit malfunction=== causes wiring short to positive ---short to ground ---TP sensor ---ECM
also refers to brake vacuum---implausible signal====causes ---wiring--- vacuum sensor--- mechanical fault

2010 Ford Fusion Se..What is code P2111...can i get the part myself instead of going to dealership

Well code 2111 means the computer thinks the throttle control is stuck open. Chances are the problem is the throttle control sensor, but the sensor and the circuit would need to be checked.
Replacing something may not fix it.

I have 3 codes from my scaner p2111 p2112 p2238

P2111 - Throttle Actuator Control System Stuck Open.
P2112 - Throttle Actuator Control System Stuck Closed.
P2238 - O2 Sensor Positive Current Control Circuit Low Bank 1 Sensor 1

For the P2111 & P2112 you will need to replace the throttle body this can be pricey since the TAC is built into it. Try cleaning it good and see what happens. This can also trigger the P2238 code if its dumping fuel.
For the P2238 check the connections on the o2 sensor or replace the upstream o2 sensor that should correct it.

Check engine light is on and the car lost power. By checking with a portable meter, it showed "P2111 TAC system stuck open", what does it mean and how to fix the problem?

It means you probably have a bad TPS (throttle position sensor) or TAC, in the throttle body. Costs about $60. Is easy to change. While in there, make sure the throttle body is clean, because heavy coating of oil water, grit, etc. builds up and will inhibit function.
