Need to know how to calibrate


What is it exactly you're trying to calibrate? typically in any form of calibration, you need a unit and method of measure, initial specifications so you know where you're calibration needs to be set before, during, and after your work. and a method of adjusting the item to be calibrated. usually a haynes manual, or other form of service manual will provide you with more detailed instructions on the specific type of car/truck/ etc you're working on. Hope this helps

How do I adjust the throttle position sensor on my 93 cadillac seville sls 4.9l engine?


4.5 And 4.9L Engines
  1. Remove the air cleaner.
  2. Remove the TP sensor connector.
  3. Unscrew the 2 TP sensor attaching screws and retainers, and remove the TP sensor.

To install:
  1. With the throttle valve in the normal closed idle position, install the TP sensor on the throttle body assembly.
  2. Install 2 TP sensor attaching screws with retainers. Do not tighten the screw until the TP sensor is adjusted.
  3. Install the TP Sensor connector. Adjust the TP Sensor and perform the idle learn procedure.
  4. To Perform the TP sensor adjustment.
    1. Disable the generator by grounding the green harness connector plug adjacent to the generator.
    2. Start the engine, enter diagnostics, and select PCM override PS103 'ISC Actuator'
    3. Press the 'COOLER' button on the CCP to retract the ISC Actuator. This action will disengage the A/C compressor and command the EGR 'OFF'. The Climate control center display will change from '50 to 00'. The ISC Actuator will slowly retract (about 20 seconds) to a fully retracted position. Verify that the throttle lever is resting on the minimum idle speed screw. With the ISC Actuator plunger fully retracted, disconnect the ISC harness.
    4. Select the PCM data PD01, 'TP Sensor', while still in PCM override PS03. Note the throttle position (in degrees) displayed on PCM parameter PD01.
    5. (-0.5° TO + 0.5°)

      No TP sensor adjustment required. Reattach the ISC Actuator harness and disconnect the grounding wire at the generator.
    6. TP Sensor (-10.0° TO -0.6°) or TP Sensor (+ 0.6° TO + 90.0°) TP Sensor adjustment required.

  5. With the engine 'OFF' and the ignition 'ON', reenter diagnostics and select PCM override PS03 'ISC Actuator'. Press the 'COOLER' button to retract the ISC Actuator the minimum air setting.
    1. Loosen the TP sensor screws just enough to permit the sensor to be rotated. Open the throttle slightly and allow the throttle lever to snap shut against the minimum air screw. Adjust the TP sensor so the parameter display is 0°. Tighten the TP sensor mounting screws with the sensor in the adjusted position. Recheck the parameter to be sure the TP sensor parameter is (-0.5° to + 0.5).
    2. Install the air cleaner.

Cause for po121


code p0121 refers to throttle position (TP)switch A/ pedal position (AAP) switch A-range/performance problem===causes --accelerator cable adjustment--TP/APP switch
PO121 also refers to TP sensor A/ accelerator pedal position AAP switch A -range / performance problem===causes --accelerator cable adjustment. TP/AAP sensor --wiring
Cheapest first is to check the cable adjustment then the cheapest part after that .

How to adjust Dusk Sensing Headlights on a Subaru outback.


Hello, to my knowledge there is no way to do this adjustment manually. You must hook up the Subaru scan tool and adjust the sensitivity that way. If the dealer has already calibrated it once they may have just not desensitized it enough or the sensor is faulty and is not accepting the recalibration protocol and is biased to full sensitivity. In this case the sun-load sensor must be replaced. I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...

I have a 54 lcd land cruser and the rear hight adjuster is stuck in high and wont go down any susgestions


I would suggest that you replace the rear height sensor, this is a very common failure.

But...the problem is, after you replace thje sensor, the new sensor needs to be calibrated; and that can only be done by a toyota dealer.

Without the calibration, the rear will continue to be as high as possible.

I would recommend letting a dealership handle this repair. Without the proper scan tool calibration, you are pretty much stuck.

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.
