Where is the Engine Throttle Position Sensor located in my 2007 Cadillac DTS


It is located in the throttle body assembly . Your vehicle has electronic throttle control .
Throttle Body Assembly
The throttle body assembly contains the following components:
?€¢
The throttle blade


?€¢
The throttle actuator motor


?€¢
The throttle position (TP) sensor 1 and 2

The throttle body functions are similar to a conventional throttle body with the following exceptions:
?€¢
An electric motor opens and closes the throttle valve.


?€¢
The throttle blade is spring loaded in both directions and the default position is slightly open.


?€¢
There are 2 individual TP sensors within the throttle body assembly.


Oh yea it has two TPS - throttle position sensors ! An you have to replace the whole assembly !

Where is the throttle body fuse on 2008 toyota rav4


There is no "fuse" for the throttle body. The throttle body gets all of its power and ground from the Powertrain Control Module. If your throttle body (or accelerator) is not functioning properly, you need to scan your PCM to find out why.

Chevy trailblazer 2007 P0506 & P1400 what are the solutions for these codes


Cleaning your throttle body should take care of both problems. Clean your throttle body with throttle body cleaner. First disconnect the battery, clean the TB with TB cleaner, must be nice and shiny. When finished, hook the battery back up and drive around for 20 minutes or so with all accessories off, so the computer will relearn a properly functioning throttle body.

Your computer learned some bad habits, so when you changed the battery, the computer thought the throttle body was clean and functioning properly. So when you changed it, this caused all your problems. Very common, keep your throttle body clean, should be done at least once a year. Total cost if you do it yourself is around $5, for the can of TB cleaner.

I have a 2004 chevy trailblazer and whenever i turn on my a/c or heater it seems my engine losses power and wants to die.


I'm taking a wild guess that you recently unhooked or replaced your battery?

Your problem is a dirty throttle body, and if you do it yourself, can cost you about $5 for the can of throttle body cleaner. Unhook your battery again, and clean the throttle body and butterfly very well, must be shiny. Careful as the butterfly is very sharp. While removing the entire throttle body and cleaning it is best, leaving it bolted on will solve your problem too. When finished, hook your battery back up and drive around for 20 minutes or so with all accessories OFF. During this period, your computer will relearn a properly functioning throttle body.

Your computer learned some bad habits before the battery was unhooked the first time. When it was hooked back up, it thought the throttle body was clean and functioning properly. Cleaning it takes care of this problem. I do mine about once a year.

I need to know were the IAC valve is


For a new Body style 2004 ( not a Heritage or Lightning ) there is not an IAC.

The IAC functions are now part of the throttle by wire operation in the 2004-08 MY F-150s.
The Throttle Plate Position Controller is part opened by the PCM ( actually a chip embedded in the PCM specific to this function ) when the engine is at idle and the throttle is off ( i.e. not be pressed down ).

If you are talking about a 2004 Heritage or Lightning ( the same body style as the 99-03 MY ), the IAC is on the back of the throttle body, under the plastic throttle body cover.

Not too sure which 2004 version you are talking about, just wanted to cover both 2004 options for the location on the IAC.

I have a 2002 trailblazer and a friend replaced a coil pack and dissconected the battery to reset the trouble light but now it kills the engine when i put it on defrost or a/c.


Classic dirty throttle body syndrome. Disconnect the battery again. Clean your throttle body with throttle body cleaner, needs to be nice and shiny. When finished, hook the battery back up and drive around for 20 or so, so the computer can re-learn a properly functioning throttle body.

Your computer learned some bad habits with the dirty TB, so when the battery was disconnected, it thought the TB was clean and functioning properly, hence your problem.

Total cost to fix your problem is about $5 for the can of TB cleaner.

Recently i replaced battery in my 2002 envoy, now if a/c is on it idles rough and will stall, can you help me with solving this problem


Clean your throttle body. Disconnect the battery, and take the plastic resonator and large hoses off that attach to the throttle body. Clean with throttle body cleaner, must be nice and shiny. When finished, drive around for 20 min or so, so the computer can re-learn the properly functioning throttle body. Your computer learned some bad habits with the dirty throttle body, so when you disconnect the battery and reconnect it, it thinks the throttle body is clean and functioning properly which is not the case. If you do it yourself, can cost you a can of throttle body cleaner $7.
