I need to know if the TPS in my 2006 Ford Fusion SEL, can be replaced on my own, or does it need to go to a dealer to be replaced?

    Thank you for your response. I have one more question. How do I clear the code out of the computer? And, where do I get the code?

    Thanks again.

    The reason I am thinking that it is the TPS is because I put in a new battery last night.
    Started the car and it did not idle like it normally would. I hit the gas and it would not idle like it normally does. The guy at Autozone is the one that said it might be the TPS. Now I did drive the car home, but at 6 miles and hr. Could not go any faster. Drove in first gear all the way home. It acted like it was not getting any gas. Could it be that I need to reset the computer or that it really is the TPS? Thanks again for your help.

The TPS is an easy part to replace. It has 2 screws and 1 electric connector. It is about the size of a butane lighter and attaches to the metal airhorn.

There is only a slight adjustment possible for this part. One end has an elongnated slot for the screw. Just look at where the old part was adjusted and replace it that way. The only thing you need to watch is aligning the slot on the throttle shaft with the indentation on the TPS.

While you are replacing the part, disconnect the battery on the POS cable and this will reset the "check engine" light on the dash. Then reconnect and drive your car.

You can do it yourself. Then get the code cleared out of your computer. The new one may not work until you do that.

I have a 2006 ford fusion sel and the light bulb in center floor console is burned out. How do I change it?


You have to remove the cover around the gearshift, there you'll find the bulb, it's a small 12V bulb, just pull it out of the holder and install a new one.

Replacing the Cabin Air Filter


I was a little surprised, but according to my AllData data base, this vehicle does not have a replaceable cabin filter. It is possible they're wrong. Try buying one, quite often they come with instructions. If not, don't buy it. This may sound hit and miss but even the manufacturers change things like this within model years.

Throttle does not work-wrench light on


Certain emissions parts are covered 8 yr / 80,000 miles (e.g. PCM, ECU, & TCM). I've also read of bad gas caps leading to problems. Have you changed gas caps or added a locking cap that's not Ford approved for this fuel system?

2006 Ford Fusion inside door handle stopped working


The plastic door handle is broken.
You will need to get a replacement door handle.
Go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/gtppilot/sets...57607539089979/
This should help. It is a set of photographs and instructions to do the job of replacing the handle.

Good luck.
