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
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.
