You have to back probe the TPS Sensor with a volt meter

Turn key on

Adjust to 5.0 V --open throttle ---ECM Voltage Output

Should read .2 or more closed

Throttle position sensor

A TPS can be easily changed in most cases. I don't know what kind of car you have though!! Some are adjustable and need to be set properly. This can also be done with a little basic electrical knowledge and a good multimeter. The TPS is located opposite the throttle cable on the throttle body and has a three wire is directly attached to the throttle plate rod and is usually held on by two or three small screws. If the screw holes are not slotted then it is non-adjustable and can simply be changed. It may be necessary to clear the code when the repair is done.

How to fix a 05 ford 500 throttle body from staying closed

Hello, You should not be having a problem like this without a "Check Engine" light being on. I will tell you about the adjustments that are possible, but want to tell you about the Free scans at Autozone, Advance and Oreilys.

If there is a bad component in your system, you will need to readjust what I am telling you to change. So you need to know if your system has bad parts or you will need Dealer type equipment to reset it to factory specs once the bad part is replaced.

To change the idle speed(opening the throttle plate) you have a TPS on one side of the Airhorn. The TPS is attached to the butterfly plate shaft on the throttle body. There is a slight adjustment possible if the TPS has a slotted end on one side. This slot allows you to rotate the TPS slightly to change the RPM. There is also a set bumperstop screw (throttle stop) on the opposite side of the TPS. It is hard to move, but will allow slight adjustment of the TPS if there is any adjustment left in the TPS slot.

I have adjusted only a few of these because there is rarely a need. You may gain 75RPM-150 RPM tops. You may have low fuel pressure which should be checked first, if you think the throttle is not opening enough right now. There is also a part called an "Idle control motor" in some manifolds. It affects idle speed.

I have given you a mechanical means to open the throttle. I hope my solution is very helpful to you. Remember to have the free scan and you may find a bolt-on part to substitute for adjusting the throttle.

Adjustable throttle position sensor

I'm assuming you have the 3.3l v-6. When I look up the part, it seems to have slotted holes. Therefore, it is designed to be adjusted after installation. If your tps has these slotted bolt holes, adjust it to satisfy the settings in the test procedure below.
  1. Remove air cleaner. Disconnect the TPS harness from the TPS.
  2. Using suitable jumper wires, connect a digital voltmeter J-29125-A or equivalent to the correct TPS terminals A and B.
  3. With the ignition ON and the engine running, The TPS voltage should be 0.3-1.0 volts at base idle to approximately 4.5 volts at wide open throttle.
  4. If the reading on the TPS is out of specification, check the minimum idle speed before replacing the TPS.
  5. If the voltage reading is correct, remove the voltmeter and jumper wires and reconnect the TPS connector to the sensor.
  6. Reinstall the air cleaner.

Sounds more like maybe there could be a vacum leak somewhere. Also, make sure the intake flex hose has no cracks in it.

How to adjust the tps on a 1997 Montero 3.5 LS

very carefully. It is not one of the things you want to mess with unless you have a scanner and the experience to know what adjustment you are making. There are two screws that hold it to the throttle body and the TPS is slotted so that you can turn it on the axes. But in 28 years, the adjustment I have had to do only happened when I replaced one, or when someone else was adjusting it. You do need the scanner to set it at the right place.

Hope this helps.

Engine iddle speed need adjusting

You cant adjust it. Your car has a tps sensor " throttle position sensor " and a iac idle air control. these are both on the throttle body. is the check engine light on? The best way to check them is on a scanner at places like auto zone they will let you use one for free. and will help you do it. first check the codes if any then look at live data scroll down till you see tps and look at its values rev the motor up and it should change values are 0% to 100% no throttle to full throttle. at idle it should be 18 to 26 or so. if it doesnt change or its at a high number and no gas is being given then its bad. also look at the iac and see if it changes as well. you can also google the resistence values for each and ohm them out. It does sound like a bad tps. try that first , and the tps is easy to change

Reset throttle position sensor on 87 ford ranger

Ok in the Haynes Repair Manual it say that the TPS sensor is non adjustable on a ranger. Now if you have an adjustable one you have a TPS block that you use to set this sensor. The best bet is to line up the slot in the TPS with the blade on the throttle shart.
