VERY CAREFULLY ! .... you will see a small bead inside - this is the brains - do not harm !!
I use an electrical contact spray cleaner and spray it from both sides, if it still looks dirty then use a very soft child's paintbrush along with the cleaner. The performance of these beads can be affected by dirt as they are very sensitive, if you have ''air flow'' or associated warnings often and you keep needing to clean this unit look carefully at your air filter assembly and piping for leaks or ill-fitting parts. Hope this helped.

It means that a fault has been detected and stored by the engine management system. The fault most likely a component within the engine electrical system e.g a camshaft sensor, crank sensor, O2 sensor etc.
The only way to narrow the fault down is to have the engine management fault memory read with a scanning tool, which any decent garage will have. The emissions test result could be a secondary problem as a result of the fault causing the warning light to come on, or there could be an air leak in the intake system or a leak in the exhaust system. From here you need to have the fault memory read and go from there.
If you do not want to go to the dealer you can try stopping by your local parts store, Pepboys or Autozone as they will usually scan for these codes at no charge. Their generic scan tool will be limited in its capabilities but all we need is the code number which is a P then four digits. Once you have the code numbers let me know what they are so I can assist you with the diagnosis and repair. Try this before to make some Throttle Body cleaning job.

change the pedal sensor...thrttle is fine and will function properly as soon as its changed..make sure once you change it you turn the key to position two for 5 seconds then turn it back to position one ,then wait ten more seconds and turn the key to postion two for 5 seconds again to allow the ecu to calibrate.And make sure you unplug the neg terminal to do the install...once reconnected follow the above procedure...the crank the car.
