Throttle pedal position sensor "A" circuit low input


Sounds like the Throttle Plate is sticking

You were fooled into changing the TPS because of the code

Not the way you diagnose vehicle issues

You find out why a sensor--- good or bad set the code

Get some CRC Throttle Body Cleaner & follow the instructions

Don't need much sprayed around the throttle plate

Then have someone step on gas pedal to confirm success

May need the key on

Your low input is the throttle not returning to home position

Almost like the sensor was telling you what was wrong

Fun stuff isn't it & not easy to understand

Where is the throttle position sensor on a 2004 ford ranger


Give yourself some credit

{Throttle Position} where is the throttle ?

It is on the throttle body of all vehicles

You will need a T20 Torx bit to remove --as well
as a hair dryer to soften the thread locker

Keep in mind that NO CODES TELL YOU WHAT
IS WRONG OR WHAT TO REPLACE --only
component testing does

How to clean my 2001 Taurus throttle position sensor


The throttle position sensor itself is sealed up and can't be cleaned. Might it be the Mass Airflow Sensor or Throttle plates you are refering too?

How hard is it to change a throttle position sensor on a 1990 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 L V6?


This actually shouldn't be too terribly difficult. If you look where the throttle body is, where the throttle cable connects, you'll see a part directly across from it. It'll have two screws holding it in. That is the throttle position sensor. Simply remove the two screws and the wiring harness attaching to it and then attach the wiring harness to the new one, carefully lining it up correctly, so the blade fits nicely into it. Tighten the screws so they're snug, but don't over-torque them, as you could crack the housing of the sensor. Then that's it! :) You might have to remove a couple of small things for ease of getting at the sensor, but overall, this job shouldn't take you too long.

I hope this helps! :)

I need to locate the throttle position sensor in a 1998 ford taurus


The location of TPS is to the left air filter / intake duct which attaches to the throttle body.You will see a small rectangular black box ON the throttle body with a couple of wires coming out of it. That is throttle position sensor (TPS). -------This will help.thanks.Helpmech.

My Hyundai Santa Fe 2004 doesn't shift down from overdrive when driving at 70 mph. Recently replaced the crankshaft sensor and timing belt. It is an automatic and the other gears seem to shift alright....


You might try testing the tps. It may have a dead spot at the high end of the throttle opening. Make sure the resistance continues to change as you open the throttle all the way.

Throttle Position Sensor

Operation The throttle position sensor is a rotating type variable resistor that rotates with the throttle body-s throttle shaft to sense the throttle valve angle. As the throttle shaft rotates, the throttle angle of the sensor changes and the ECM/PCM detects the throttle valve opening based on the TPS output voltage.
Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the sensor connector.
  3. Remove the sensor retaining screws. Remove the sensor from its mounting.
To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
Testing 2.4L Engine
  1. Disconnect the sensor connector.
  2. Measure the resistance between terminal 1 (sensor ground) and terminal 2 (sensor power).
  3. Specification should be 3.5-6.5 kohm.
  4. Connect and analog ohmmeter between terminal 1 (sensor ground) and terminal 3 (sensor output).
  5. Operate the throttle valve slowly from the idle position to the full open position, and check that the resistance changes smoothly in proportion with the throttle valve opening angle.
  6. If the resistance is out of specification, or fails to change smoothly, replace the sensor.
2.7L Engine
  1. Disconnect the sensor connector.
  2. Measure the resistance between terminal 2 (sensor ground) and terminal 1 (sensor power).
  3. Specification should be 3.5-6.5 kohm.
  4. Connect and analog ohmmeter between terminal 2 (sensor ground) and terminal 3 (sensor output).
  5. Operate the throttle valve slowly from the idle position to the full open position, and check that the resistance changes smoothly in proportion with the throttle valve opening angle.
  6. If the resistance is out of specification, or fails to change smoothly, replace the sensor.
  1. Disconnect the sensor connector.
  2. Measure the resistance between terminal 2 (sensor ground) and terminal 1 (sensor power).
  3. Specification should be 1.6-2.4 kohm.
  4. Connect and analog ohmmeter between terminal 2 (sensor ground) and terminal 3 (sensor output).
  5. Operate the throttle valve slowly from the idle position to the full open position, and check that the resistance changes smoothly in proportion with the throttle valve opening angle.
  6. If the resistance is out of specification, or fails to change smoothly, replace the sensor.
3.5L Engine
  1. Disconnect the sensor connector.
  2. Measure the resistance between terminal 3 (sensor ground) and terminal 1 (sensor power).
  3. Specification should be 3.5-6.5 kohm.
  4. Connect and analog ohmmeter between terminal 3 (sensor ground) and terminal 2 (sensor output).
  5. Operate the throttle valve slowly from the idle position to the full open position, and check that the resistance changes smoothly in proportion with the throttle valve opening angle.
  6. If the resistance is out of specification, or fails to change smoothly, replace the sensor.
