Where does the throttle position sensor go

it goes on the throttle body opposite the throttle linkage.
Follow the throttle cable to the throttle body...
you may have to take some covers off... but it is a pretty easy fix.

The pocket scan show the code P0123 on my dakota 1998 want to know how fix that

Codes don't give a fix, they give an area to diagnose to find out what is the problem that causes the code to set. Here are the possibilities for your Dodge.
P0123 DODGE - Throttle Position Sensor/Accelerator Position Pedal Circuit High Input.
Possible causes- Throttle position sensor harness is open or shorted
- Throttle position sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty throttle position sensor
- Faulty Powertrian Control Module (PCM)

P0506 code, low idle speed, sometimes stops and needs restarting at intersection

Hi, the P0506 code (IAC System RPM Lower than expected), means that the PCM has detected an idle speed less than what it wants to see. There is a predetermined amount the throttle plate can open to maintain a good idle RPM, if this amount is exceeded, the PCM will set this DTC. I have seen this on many ETC vehicles such as your Mustang. The proper procedure is to replace the throttle body to fix it, but, on more than one occasion I have fixed them by cleaning the throtte body.

Have someone turn the ignition switch on, and depress the throttle (Engine off), remove your air intake tube, and use a rag and a mild carb cleaner and clean the buildup around where the throttle plate closes, on the outer part of the throttle opening. Clear the code, and retest.

Unless there is something else obviously wrong (Clogged air intake, plugged exhaust) this should fix your problem. If it doesn't, you will have to replace the throttle body itself.

Throttle position sensor 89 f150? can i fix this

You only need general tools. It is located beside the throttle body. It would be much easier to take off the throttle body first.

Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch "D" Circuit Low Input how do i fix this problem ihave a 2005 dodge ram 1500 5.7L hemi

typical problem, replace the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) it is located directly opposite of the throttle cables on the throttle body. 2 bolts save the bolts for the love of god SAVE THE BOLTS they are "trilobal" and come verry much in handy later. but it is an easy 10 minute fix and if my memory is correct they are torx head bolts from factory.

My 1998 vw is getting less mileage per gallon, and my check engine light is on. I scanned it and the code came up that the throttle body control module needs fixed or replaced. Oh yes and the oil light...

yes it will!! you have issues with the tps and air flow valve on the throttle body also you may have to use a code tool to reset all that once the unit is replaced to insure proper throttle response and speed controll through the ECM to the new unit

2005 Ford Expedition (4wd) with trouble codes p2104 and p2112 completely cuts off at low speeds. All signs point to throttle position sensor, but want to make sure I'm on the right track.

Shown here is the P2104 obd2 code and their general meaning. For a brief description of any particular OBD2 code and how to fix the obd2 trouble code, please browsw below. P2104 Engine TP Actuator Cntl System
This obd2 code is very common on newer vehicles which contain new design of throttle positioner sensor. Instead of putting a tps sensor at the side of your throttle body as in older engines, a throttle actuator control system is installed which eliminates the mechanical linkage (cable) between the throttle body and the throttle pedal. Under the throttle pedal, a throttle switch is installed and a throttle module or actuator is incorporated beside the throttle body. Because there is no mechanical device that wears out, it is more effecient in delivering better mileage and performance torque (besides...the actuator module performs better in getting all throttle signals to the ecm and trany).
To test this code, check the integrity of the wires going to both the throttle body actuator and the ecm including the throttle switch. Most of the time, if you have symptoms like trany going to a limp mode, the culprit originates from the trany circuit. However, if the symptom is engine related like hesitation, the problem resides in the throttle actuator itself which may sometimes includes the replacement of the whole throttle body assembly. Contact ATS if you need a wiring diagram or detailed fixes for your throttle actuator control system.
Before replacing the throttle control actuator and throttle body, try cleaning the throttle plates and all plug-in wiring connections. Also, watch out the throttle body mounting bolts which can easily break (use care) when removing them.
