There is no pedal sensor... there is a throttle position sensor located on the throttle body (near the MAF). Replacing it is simple and self explanatory once you locate it.

Testimonial: "I did that and when the symptoms reoccurred the repair shop said it needed the accelerator pedal sensor, which we found at a Kia dealership. So I'm confused."

    Why would they sell it at a Kia parts place if there's not one?

    This is separate from the Throttle Position Sensor which is located on the intake

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

  • Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor

    Description & Operation

    A power supply is applied on the Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor (main) power terminal from the PCM. The ground terminal is grounded with PCM. When the accelerator pedal is moved from the idle position to the fully opened position, the resistance between the accelerator pedal position sensor (main) output terminal and ground terminal will increase according to the depression.

When the accelerator pedal is moved from the idle position to the fully opened position, the resistance between the accelerator pedal position sensor (main) output terminal and ground terminal will increase according to the depression.

Testing

  1. Connect a suitable scan tool to the diagnostic connector. Select APP1 or APP2 percentage.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  3. Measure the voltage at the PCM terminal and ground with connectors connected:

    APP1-8% load or 0.4 volts with the accelerator pedal releasedAPP1-60% load or 3.0 volts with the accelerator pedal depressedAPP2 -8% load or 0.4 volts with the accelerator pedal releasedAPP2 -60% load or 3.0 volts with the accelerator pedal depressed
  4. If any check above does not meet the specifications, check connectors and wiring between the sensor and PCM. If ok, replace PCM.
  5. If the measured values are outside the standard value range, or if the load % and/or voltage does not change smoothly, replace the sensor.

Error code p1271 on trailblazer


That trouble code is faulting the accelerator pedal sensor. The APP sensors are located in a TAC module mounted to the accelerator pedal bracket. There are three individual APP sensors within the TAC module. Three separate signal circuits, low reference circuits, and 5v reference circuits are used to determine the accelerator pedal position. The APP sensor signal voltages increase when the accelerator pedal is depressed.

Where is the APPS sensor located on the 2001 Gr Cherokee Laredo 4.0


APPS Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor is usually integrated to the pedal itself. If it has gone bad you have to replace the accelerator pedal assemble itself. 2 bolts/nuts and disconnect a wire harness.
