Question about Lincoln Town Car
Wide open throttle signal goes to PCM from the TPS, throttle position sensor. mounted on throtle body
Throttle Position Sensor The throttle position (TP) sensor (Figure 39) is a rotary potentiometer or Hall-effect sensor that provides a signal to the PCM that is linearly proportional to the throttle plate/shaft position. The sensor housing has a three-blade electrical connector that may be gold plated. The gold plating increases corrosion resistance on terminals and increases connector durability. The TP sensor is mounted on the throttle body. As the TP sensor is rotated by the throttle shaft, four operating conditions are determined by the PCM from the TP. Those conditions are closed throttle (includes idle or deceleration), part throttle (includes cruise or moderate acceleration), wide open throttle (includes maximum acceleration or de-choke on crank), and throttle angle rate.
