Whats the difference between a current code and a pending code?

Pending codes and current codes are basically the same. Pending codes are for a problem that is still indicated to be a problem,but hasn't been cleared. Current codes are codes that are indicated for the current drive cycle. Usually will both be the same code if problem still exists and hasn't been cleared without repair.

Hey guys, I have a 2008 dodge sprinter 2500 throwing a code P242F auxiliary emission controls and P0227 TPS switch c circuit low imput. I replaced the TPS, but i'm still on reduced power and still throwing...

Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch "C" Circuit Low Input
p242f is bogus try typing that 1 more time.

my wild guess, is you dont have FSM or access to
and guess 2, (im too lazy to look it up) its a flyby wire car?
if yes, then you need training on flyby wire, its COMPLEX.
guessing and throwing parts is very expensive on FBW, 10x so.

if you know understand FBW, then read the FSM ,it covers all this in great and complex details.

FBW is, you tell ECU how fast you want to go, and it does ALL that magic. (short version)

do you want guessing, or real tests.
say so please.
for $15 low bucks , you can read all night, and be ready in the morn.
discounted here,

btw2, are you going to spend $2000 on parts.
just to find an air leak?
here is the #1 rule for EFI,
the ECU/PCM NEVER !, knows what part is bad!
it only knows what monitor test failed (DTC'S)
that takes a human, to conduct more tests to find truth.
this is a fact. knowing this one fact,would make most parts
stores go broke fast... .I promise.

P242F Bank1Sensor3 sprinter fault codes 07 Sprinter 2500

Bank one is the side on a V or H engine where cylinder number one is located. On an in-line engine you only have a bank one, no bank 2. Sensor 3 will be the third sensor from the engine in the exhaust stream.

If that was the case then yes the cat has collapsed and needs replacing
