    This vehicle is drive by wire and no throttle cable. This problem happens when the gas pedal sensor and the throttle plate sensor have a correlation issue. DIsconnecting the battery for 30sec may clear the issue. Most common repair is replacing throttle actuator under the hood if problem re-occurs

The TPS throttle pisition sensor .It moves everytime the gas pedel moves .
Its a ware part on the side of the throttle body although it could be a bigger problem this is a good place to start with out getting to techinacal.
Its on the end of a shaft that runs through the air horn look at the throttle cable were it attaches to the throttle body the part that moves is were it is

SOURCE: When you press the gas peddle, it won't accelerate.

Take it back. It's most likely failed.

Your most likely about to go out of the 10 year 200,000 mile warranty so stay on top of them about it. After your out there is no help for them.

I would check the Throttle Actuator Control Motor on the throttle body. That is what controls the position of the throttle plate opening.

Cruise control quit working on my 2004 F150 4x4 lariat what could be problem


Could be a number of thing's wrong .Without hooking a factory scan tool and checking for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes , viewing scan data i would only be guessing . Your vehicle speed control is computer controlled . switches are low voltage input to the PCM - engine computer , Vehicle also has electronic throttle control . Electronically controlled DC motor on the throttle plate is how the computer controls the gas going into the engine. Gas pedal has position sensors that tell the computer how much your pushing on the gas , sensors on the throttle body tell the PCM if it is opening the throttle enough . VERY COMPLEX !
YOUR best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Why doesn't 2oo8 ford f150 accelerate?


Are there any lights lit on the instrument cluster ? check engine , a yellow wrench symbol ? Are you familiar with electronic throttle control . Look under the dash ,driver side . Do you see wires a connector on the gas pedal ? Computer controlled throttle control . Electronic Throttle Control could be a problem with this or plugged catalytic converter .

Stalls intermittently, wrench icon lights up under tach.


Problem with the electronic throttle control .
It should be noted that the ETC system includes a wrench light on the instrument cluster that illuminates when a fault is detected. Faults are also accompanied by DTCS and the "Check Engine Soon" light. Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a reputable ASE certified repair shop .
Overview The Generation II (Gen II) Torque Based Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) is a hardware and software strategy that delivers a transmission output shaft torque (via throttle angle) based on driver demand (pedal position). It utilizes an electronic throttle body, the PCM and a accelerator pedal assembly to control throttle opening and engine torque. The ETC system basically replaces the standard cable operated accelerator pedal, idle air control (IAC) motor, 3-wire throttle position sensor (TPS) and mechanical throttle body .

What i can do next ? i have put new tps. and new throttle motor and codes still shows throttle stuck open and forced idle the explorer 04 still won't accelerates


The problem never had anything to do with
the TPS Sensor,the TACM throttle body motor

When you don't own & work from Factory Diagnostic
Manuals, you don't know the system your working on
or learn anything

Your problem is the ignition coils or modules

I'm all too familiar with all the throttle body codes
Non of the codes have anything to do with the
factory reference manuals either,they help but
stop short of telling you the PCM gets spikes in
what is called a Quizzer which is inside the PCM
but a separate section dedicated to processing
the throttle plate position,control of the motor
& your pushing on the gas pedal & the input from
that or the ETC which is the gas pedal electronic
throttle control

The bad ignition coils are why most repair shops
& dealers can't fix a ford.

Check your fuel vapor recovery system, your van has unusual set up, and the effect is RAW fuel gets purged, rather than vapor.
The dead giveaway test is does the issue happen on light acceleration? Does it stop if you let off the throttle? Can you accelerate harder and "get past" the issue?

Check Engine Light & Dashboard Reads Reduced Engine Power


The reduced engine power happens because there is a problem with the electronic throttle control . Some people call it drive by wire ! The gas pedal has sensors inside , position sensors , connected electrical to the PCM - engine computer , the throttle body on the engine has a DC electric motor an also has position sensors . These are also connected to the PCM electrical . The PCM reads the position sensors which indicate how much your pressing on the gas pedal . then hopefully it opens the throttle the same amout .

The throttle actuator control (TAC) system delivers improved throttle response and greater reliability and eliminates the need for mechanical cable. The TAC system performs the following functions:
• Accelerator pedal position sensing
• Throttle positioning to meet driver and engine demands
• Throttle position sensing
• Internal diagnostics
• Cruise control functions
• Manage TAC electrical power consumption
The TAC system includes the following components:
• The accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors
• The throttle body assembly
• The engine control module (ECM)

Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn OFF the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned OFF
- Ignore the accelerator pedal input
• Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
