All three of the codes have to do with your Throttle Actuator Control System: P2104- Throttle Actuator Control System - Forced Idle  P2111- PCM indicates the throttle plate is at a greater angle then commanded P2112- Throttle Actuator Control System - Stuck Closed 
Possible Causes: Possible causes: 
Binding in the Throttle Body, Stuck open,

The first code P2104 says a few thing 
Open or short in Multiple accelerator padel position 
Damaged APP sensor 
Damaged power train Control module
but it is set with other DTC code and should troubleshoot other codes first. 

P2111 PCM indicates the throttle plate is at a greater angle then commanded, Possible causes: 
Binding in the Throttle Body, Stuck open, 
TAC Motor circuit are cross wired 
TAC Motor harness circuits are shorted together 
Damaged PCM unit. 

P2112 - Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System - Stuck Closed. Possible causes is same as above.

Tell your dealer technician to follow pinpoint test DV1 in the workshop manual. (but also to reference test QE1) DV1 deals with him/her checking the throttle position voltages, if these voltages are not within spec, proceeding with checking for obstructions in the throttle body, then if this passes, he/she checks the wiring to the TAC assembly. 
There are many steps in this test and since the truck  isnt here i can't tell you where the test will go (throttle body assembly, PCM, etc.) most likely it will be the throttle position sensor which is a part of the throttle body assembly or a simple connector coming unplugged or wiring being cut, but once again since i don't have the truck in front of me i can't be 100% sure. 
Good luck. hope this helps, Worst the throttle body may have gone bad and need to be replaced.

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 !!

unfortunately no ! Your best bet take it to the dealer . The P0420 always ends up being the catalytic converter ! P2104 isn't throttle air control . P2112 - Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System - Stuck Closed. Description: This powertrain control module (PCM) fault status indicates the throttle plate is at a lower angle than commanded. Possible Causes:
  • Binding throttle body, stuck closed.
  • Damaged PCM.
Diagnostic Aids: Application Key On Engine Off Key On Engine Running Continuous Memory All GO to DV1
P2104 - Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System - Forced Idle Description: The TAC system is in the failure mode effects management (FMEM) mode of forced idle. Possible Causes:
  • Open or short in multiple accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor circuits.
  • Damaged APP sensor.
  • Damaged powertrain control module (PCM).
Diagnostic Aids: This DTC is an informational DTC and can be set in combination with a number of other DTCs which are causing the FMEM. Diagnose other DTCs first. Application Key On Engine Off Key On Engine Running Continuous Memory All GO to QE1
P0506 - Idle Air Control (IAC) System RPM Lower Than Expected For Vehicles With Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Description: This DTC is set when the powertrain control module (PCM) detects an engine idle speed that is less than the desired RPM. Possible Causes:
  • Air intake restriction.
  • Exhaust restriction.
  • Engine mechanical fault.
  • Damaged electronic throttle body (ETB).
  • Damaged PCM.
Diagnostic Aids: This DTC is informational only and it may be accompanied by other DTCs. Diagnose other DTCs first. If other DTCs are not present inspect the intake air system for air restrictions and damage. If no concerns are present, clear the DTC and retest. For All Others Description: This DTC is set when the powertrain control module (PCM) detects an engine idle speed that is less than the desired RPM. Possible Causes:
  • IAC circuit open.
  • Air inlet is plugged.
  • B+ or VPWR to IAC solenoid open.
  • Damaged or incorrect IAC valve.
  • IAC valve stuck closed.
  • VPWR to IAC solenoid open.
  • IAC circuit shorted to PWR.
Diagnostic Aids: Disconnect the IAC valve and look for little or no change in engine RPM as an indication of a stuck or damaged valve. Application Key On Engine Off Key On Engine Running Continuous Memory Vehicles With Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Refer to the Description, Possible Causes and Diagnostic Aids for the DTC. All others GO to KE1

P2104 P2112 P2111 My 2005 Expedition continues to cut off and the engine light comes on. After a few miles the light goes off. Then the problem starts all over again.


The p2104 code was set because the PCM had to set the idle speed, the p2112 was set to indicate that your throttle body was stuck closed. You can try to remove the throttle body and clean it, check to ensure that it opens smoothly, check the TPS connector to ensure that it is plugged in correctly, reset the light and if the problem returns, you will probably have to install a new throttle body assembly. Hope this helps, let me know

My check engine light has come on for my 2006 Ford Fusion and 3 codes came up...P0010, P2104, and P2112. Any ideas what these mean?


Fuel and Air Metering and Auxiliary Emission Controls P2104 Throttle Actuator Control System - Forced Idle
P2112 Throttle Actuator Control System - Stuck Closed
If it's not the pedal, it has to be throttle body, senor or harness related.
