SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 2004 ford f150 5.4l check

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.

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.

Start and dies, codes p061f, p2106,p2104,p2111

code p2106 refers to throttle actuator control (TAC) system--limited power mode===causes ---wiring---TAC motor---APP sensor---ECM

code o2104 refers to TAQC systems ---forced idle mode===causes wiring---TAC motor--APP sensor--ECM

code p2111 refers to TAC system --actuator stuck open ==causes ---throttle body--throttle valve tight/ sticking

code p2111 also refers to TAC system --circuit malfunction==causes wiring---short to positive--short to ground---TP sensor---ECM

code p2111 also has a 3rd section---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.

After washing engine on 2006 mustang gt codes p2104 p2111

P2104 is your throttle actuator. Probably wet the sensor. Try drying out with a hair dryer. P2111 is also a throttle code. Overnight the water has condensed and is affecting throttle position sensor.

The following diagnostic codes P2104, P2111, and P2112 the engine failure mode appears car wont move turn it off and on again and its fine with just the check engine light Happens several timesaday now

all the codes point to throttle body. clean throttle body, especially around throttle plate. check for loose wires, if problems persist. replace throttle body. p2104 is tac system forced idle, p2111 is tac system stuck open, p2112 is tac system stuck closed. clean throttle body good, and see if this fixes it. then go from there. have a good day !!

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.

How to change a throttle position sensor on a 94 ford f150 5.0 4x4

How to Replace a Throttle Position Sensor
(DIY & Save up to $135.75 ) - Time: 2.1 hours

1. Throttle Position Sensor - $ 55.44

1. Scan Tool
2. Screwdriver
3. Multimeter

1. Locate the OBD data link connector (DLC). Refer to your owner’s manual for the specific location.
  • Tip: The OBD-I data link connector is usually located in the engine compartment near the battery or the fuse box. The OBD-II connector (post 1995 cars) is usually located beneath the instument panel next to the steering column.
2. Turn your key to the“ON” position. Do not start the engine.

3. Plug your scan tool into the OBD data link connector. Turn on the scan tool and select the appropriate steps to read the diagnostic trouble code (DTC).


Scanner plugged into OBD-II data link connector.
  • Tip: The OBD-II diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a 5 character alphanumeric code. The first digit is a letter that indicates the component group, the second digit is OBD mandated or manufacturer specfic, the third digit is a subgroup, and the fourth and fifth digits define the component and basic problem.
  • 4. Locate the throttle position sensor.

  • Throttle position sensor

  • 5. Disconnect the electrical connector from the throttle position sensor.

  • Electrical connector removed
6. Test the resistance of the throttle position sensor (TPS) with a digital multi-meter. If the resistance is out of specifications, the TPS must be replaced.
  • 7. Remove the throttle position sensor.

    Removing sensor mounting screws

    8. Install the new throttle position sensor. Tighten the mounting screws and attach the electrical connector.
  • 9. Erase the diagnostic trouble code (DTC) with the scan tool using the“delete” or“erase” command. Road test your vehicle to see if the check engine light returns.

    Check engine light

  • Tip: If the check engine light returns, repeat the diagnostic process for additional DTCs or take your vehicle to a certified repair shop.
