Most of these sensors, there is no adjustment. Usually I want to check sensor wiring circuits before replacing anything, With three wire connector, that should be ref voltage--ground and signal, The ref voltage is usually around 5 volts. With key on throttle closed, the signal may be less than a volt. With throttle wide open signal would show around 4.5 volts. If a problem on wiring circuit, somewhere, replacing the sensor won't fix it. If there was a code, erase code, see if it comes back, after repair, if it comes back, it isn't fixed.

    Idle is controlled by the iac control valve...throttle body is either fully closed or it is open just a bit order to set the plate a value is needed at 1.2 volts using a meter or 9.8 % using a scan tool...I'm looking for that exact value...

    My friend, in your post you said tps. Your post title says tps, did I read that wrong?

    Closed throttle/blade should be zero percent using a scan tool. If you want to talk about iac, we can.
    Maybe I misunderstood your post?

    Your question may be above my ability to help. I found that link. Don't know if it will help?

    If I had a DFI I wouldn't have needed to ask the question...
    It's either in, volts,degrees,or a percentage...
    Depending on the manufacturer...
    If its this involved ill go purchase the 300$ service manual...

    Sometimes it takes me a bit to understand the question? Once I did, I told you I didn't have the knowledge. If you would like to repost your question, maybe you can get a more knowledgeable answer from somebody else. Some people I can help and some I can't.
    Your correct, I shouldn't have tried to answer your question. Please accept my apology.

I have a 2009 pontiac vibe 2.4. It's not accelerating.I took it to auto zone. They said throttle actuator. So I changed the throttle body on it. The problem is still there. What else can it be?

When you replace throttle body did you replace the sensors or reuse the one you had. If it's drive by wire it could be the ACCELERATOR PEDAL ASSEMBLY PEDAL POSITION SENSOR or the signal from pcm
