The TPS is located on the opposite side of the throttle cable on the throttle body. If you don't know what the throttle cables are, get a friend to sit in the van and push the gas pedal down until you see something moving. it will be on the opposite side of the movement

I had a similar problem with my 280 Datsun. It turned out to be the fuel pressure sensor located near the fuel injectors. Some of them come with a vacuum hose attached.

A THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR (TPS) is usually located on the butterfly spindle so that it can directly monitor the position of the throttle valve butterfly.
Throttle actuator control(TAC), that code comes from that part of the system too.

Not the throttle sensor (tps) remove the Idle air control (iac), High RPM's are caused from vaccumn leaks, you have a computor, put Autozone in the search, enter info on the car and search for the part, you will now know what it looks like, IAC and TPS are located at the throttle body, remove and clean with throttle body cleaner purchased at your local auto parts store

1992 K1500, code 22, clicking noise from throttle body, will not accelerate properly, changed TPS with no change


OBD Code 22 - Throttle Position Sensor Error (Signal Low)
The Throttle Position sensor signals the Engine Control Module as to the current position of the engine throttle valve. The current throttle valve opening is based on the driver's input from the gas pedal. The ECM uses the information from this sensor to help calculate fuel delivery and spark timing.

Symptoms:
* Extended cranking, possible no-start condition
* Lack of power
* Erratic transmission operation

Common Problems:
* A failed Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) would be the most common causes for code 22
* Testing the TPS circuit would involve checking voltage and ground from the ECM-5v is the normal reading between the ECM reference circuit and the ECM ground circuit at the TPS connector. Checking the TPS signal circuit to the ECM would involve monitoring the TPS signal on a scan tool while jumping the 5v reference and the signal circuits. The TPS reading should go from high when the circuit is "jumpered" to low when the jumper is removed.


Keep us updated.

On my 1991 chevy blazer s10 I get error code 43. What is it and how do I fix it


Hi, the indication is that your computer is not receiving a good signal from the knock sensor. Recommend you check the connector on the sensor and the wire. Also make sure the sensor isn't loose in the block. If those look good, you may want to just replace the sensor. A new one is $30 at autozone. Without the knock sensor signal, the computer will default the ignition timing toward a less fuel efficient value. The sensor looks like the picture below and is mounted in the engine block. You may have 2 knock sensors--one on each side of the engine. Sorry, but I could not find a good picture of the location. I will keep looking for one, though.

Code p0122 and p0123 after changing computer


Hi.

The problem is regarding TPS (throttle position sensor located in throttle body). Both codes are TPS voltage out of range (low and high) If you get both codes at once, then :

TPS may be defective,
wiring to TPS may be shorted to ground.
There may be a problem in the +5V circuit powering the TPS.
There may be a problem with ECU connector.

Hello! If you have a volt meter and a wee bit of experience using it the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS) can be tested...It is bolted to the throttle body...It has a three wire connector...Wire colors are...Gray/Red...Gray/White...And Brown/White...Using two safety pins push one into the rear of the in-place connection into the Gray/Red wire and the other into the Gray/White...Set the volt meter to read 5 volts...Connect the + probe to the Gray/White and the - to the Gray/Red...Start the engine...At idle the meter must read less then 1 volt (.85)...Slowly throttle up...At full throttle meter must read 4 volts...The most important point is that as the throttle is slowly increased the meter rises SMOOTHLY to 4 volts...If reading jumps, skips or acts erratic the TPS is defective...Cost is around $35...Since the TPS has been changed make sure the connector is clean and wires are not frayed or broken...However the voltage readings should point the way to a solution...Send comment...Guru...saailer

The sensor does control trans.It takes a reading to where the throttle is and tells the trans what gear to be in and when to shift,down shift.So if your getting that reading and the car does not seem to be shifting right suspect that sensor..Hope this helps you and have a great day>>>
