An 02 neon does not have an APP sensor only a TPS at the throttlebody. Sounds like a bogus code to me.

I hate to be negative but there is not a big aftermarket for your car, try googling it, if you get nothing chevy may be the way to go.

This TPI sensor is located directly at the throttle shaft. Easy to change, providing you can get at it. Put the new one on and you are good to go.

SOURCE: My '97 Dodge Dakota won't

To correct this problem I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: How to change 2004 acura tl accelerator pedal sensor

Below are some pictures and instructions for you. I'm just hoping that you have done all the diagnostics to be sure this is your problem. Have found in a few cases that there was a relay problem with the thottle actuator circuit. There is also a throttle actuator relay and sensor. Not sure what your problem is exactly but just hate to see parts replaced that are not needed. In any case the APP sensor is very easy to replace. Hope this helps you...

Dodge caravan 2003 code p1598 and p0123


code p 1598 is a/c pressure sensor--volts to high
code p0123 refers to throttle position(TP) sensor A/ accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor A---high input===causes wiring short to positive--TP/APP sensor---ECM
it also refers to TP sensor A APP switch A--low input====causes --wiring short to ground--Tp/APP switch---ECM

1997 dodge stratus stalls while driving. Check engine & oil light on. Putting out sensor codes- P0123 & P040. Some times it restarts while coasting or we sit for a while then it may start.


code p 0123 has several references
throttle position (TP) sensor A/accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor A--high input ===causes wiring short to positive -- TP/APP sensor or switch --ECM
also refers to TP/APP --low input==causes wiring short to ground ---TP/APP switch---ECM
with code P040 , I feel that you are missing the last digit or letter
code p0400 > p 0409 all refer to EGR system problems and p 040A >F again refer to EGR system problems
take it to an accredited service center with experience on your make of car and have it properly diagnosed

Wiring diagram FOR GAS PEDAL


Have to buy the factory wiring book from
Helm.Com or have a repair shop print the
same info but just the parts you need from
data base.
The APP,ETC,gas pedal whatever name you
like is a 3 or 4 switch component & they hardly
ever fail,so I would be looking at the factory diagnostic
charts to guide you,again need the info & it's never been
out there free,someone has the copy rights & can't give
it away at a loss

First of all a scan tool is need for this not a code reader, you need to view scan data after you find what code is stored in the PCM. It could have a problem with the powertrain control module, wiring, or the Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensors. Here are a few codes that could set .
DTC P2120: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1 Circuit

DTC P2122: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1 Circuit Low Voltage

DTC P2123: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1 Circuit High Voltage

DTC P2125: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 2 Circuit

DTC P2127: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 2 Circuit Low Voltage

DTC P2128: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 2 Circuit High Voltage

DTC P2138: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation

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)

2003 Dodge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi, Red lighting bolt on lower right of dash comes on. When this happens the motor will not pick up speed from standing start till you press the gas pedal on down, then it revs...


Hi, if you don't have a manual, you can get a free download here: http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals/

The lightning bolt indicates a fault in the electronic throttle control. It is likely the rheostat/potentiometer in the accelerator position sensor is dirty or worn out. I have pasted info on the part below from autozone.com. If you replace the sensor, be sure to follow the calibration procedure at the end of the installation instructions. Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.


Operation
The Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor (APPS) assembly is located under the vehicle battery tray. A cable connects the assembly to the accelerator pedal. A plastic cover with a movable door is used to cover the assembly.


NOTE The APPS is used only with the 5.7L V-8 engine.

The Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor (APPS) is a linear potentiometer. It provides the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) with a DC voltage signal proportional to the angle, or position of the accelerator pedal. The APPS signal is translated (along with other sensors) to place the throttle plate (within the throttle body) to a pre-determined position.
A mechanical cable is used between the accelerator pedal and the APPS assembly. Although a cable is used between the pedal and APPS, a mechanical cable is not used at the throttle body. Throttle plate position is electrically determined.

Removal & Installation
The APPS is serviced (replaced) as one assembly including the sensor, plastic housing and cable. The APPS assembly is located under the vehicle battery tray. Access to APPS is gained from over top of left / front tire.

  1. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.
  2. Disconnect APPS cable at accelerator pedal.
  3. Remove wheel house liner at left / front wheel.
  4. Gain access to APPS electrical connector by opening swing-down door.
  5. Disconnect electrical connector.
  6. Remove 3 mounting bolts.
  7. Remove APPS assembly from battery tray.
  8. If cable is to be separated at APPS, unsnap cable clip from ball socket. Release cable from plastic housing by pressing on small cable release tab.

To Install:
  1. Install Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor (APPS) cable to accelerator pedal. Refer to Accelerator Pedal Removal / Installation.
  2. Connect electrical connector to APPS.
  3. If necessary, connect cable to APPS lever ball socket (snaps on).
  4. Snap APPS cable cover closed.
  5. Position APPS assembly to bottom of battery tray and install 3 bolts.
  6. Install wheelhouse liner.
  7. The 5.7L V-8 engine is equipped with a fully electronic accelerator pedal position sensor. If equipped with a 5.7L, also perform the following 3 steps:
    1. Connect negative battery cable to battery.
    2. Turn ignition switch ON, but do not crank engine.
    3. Leave ignition switch ON for a minimum of 10 seconds. This will allow PCM to learn electrical parameters.
      NOTE The DRB III Scan Tool may also be used to learn electrical parameters. Go to the Miscellaneous menu, and then select ETC Learn.

  8. If the previous step is not performed, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set.
  9. If necessary, use a proper scan tool to erase any Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) from PCM.

Eng light code po441 and po122


Code P0441 is the purge solenoid. Examine the fuel system to make sure none of the vapor hoses are cracked or leaking. If the hoses and all connections are as they should be you'll need to replace that purge solenoid.

P0122 is the APPS sensor: The Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor (APPS) is a linear potentiometer. It provides the Engine Control Module (ECM) with a DC voltage signal proportional to the angle, or position of the accelerator pedal. This used to be referred to as the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). You'll need to check the connections at the sensor and most likely replace.
