Code P1121 for TP sensor - where is it located on engine of 2002 4.0 ford ranger


P1121 - Throttle Position (TP) Sensor Inconsistent with MAF Sensor The PCM monitors a vehicle operation rationality check by comparing sensed throttle position to mass air flow readings. If during key ON engine running self-test the comparison of the TP sensor and MAF sensor readings are not consistent with calibrated load values, the test fails and a diagnostic trouble code is stored in continuous memory.
  • Air leak between MAF sensor and throttle body
  • TP sensor not seated properly
  • Damaged TP sensor
  • Damaged MAF sensor
Drive vehicle and exercise throttle and TP sensor in all gears. A TP PID (TP V PID) less than 4.82 % (0.24 volt) with a LOAD PID greater than 55% or a TP V PID greater than 49.05% (2.44 volts) with a LOAD PID less than 30% indicates a hard fault.

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 .

What's this ? gaugesax out
P0123 - Throttle Position (TP) Circuit High Input The TP sensor circuit is monitored by the PCM for a high TP rotation angle (or voltage) input through the comprehensive component monitor (CCM). If during key ON engine OFF or key ON engine running the TP rotation angle (or voltage) changes above maximum calibrated limit, the test fails.
  • TP sensor not seated properly
  • TP circuit short to PWR
  • TP circuit short to ETCREF
  • SIG RTN circuit open to TP sensor
  • Damaged TP sensor
  • Damaged PCM
A TP PID (TP V PID) reading greater than 93% (4.65 volts) in key ON engine OFF, continuous memory or key ON engine running indicates a hard fault. P0123 - ETC Throttle Position (TP1) sensor Circuit High Input The ETC TP sensor 1 was flagged as fault status by the PCM indicating high voltage.
  • ETC TP1 sensor harness shorted to VREF
  • ETC TP1 sensor harness shorted to PWR
  • Damaged TP1 sensor
  • VREF circuit shorted to TP1 sensor
Drive vehicle, bring to a stop, turn key OFF. Start vehicle, run key ON engine running self-test at idle. Access KOER diagnostic trouble codes on scan tool.
P0193 - Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor Circuit High Input (FRP) The comprehensive component monitor (CCM) monitors the FRP sensor circuit to the PCM for high voltage. If voltage were to fall below a calibrated limit and a calibrated amount of time during testing, the test will fail.
  • FRP signal shorted to VREF or VPWR.
  • FRP signal open (gasoline only)
  • Low fuel pressure (NG only)
  • Damaged FRP sensor.
  • Damaged PCM.
  • High fuel pressure (caused by damaged fuel pressure regulator) NG.
A FRP PID value during KOER or KOEO less than 0.3 volts for gasoline or 0.5 volts for natural gas vehicles (NG) would indicate a hard fault. P0340 - Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1) The test fails when the PCM can no longer detect the signal from the CMP sensor on Bank 1.
  • CMP circuit open
  • CMP circuit short to GND
  • CMP circuit short to PWR
  • SIG RTN open (VR sensor)
  • CMP GND open (Hall effect sensor)
  • CMP misinstalled (Hall effect sensor)
  • Damaged CMP sensor shielding
  • Damaged CMP sensor
  • Damaged PCM
Harness routing, harness alterations, improper shielding, or electrical interference from other improperly functioning systems may have intermittent impact on the CMP signal.
P0705 TR Sensor TR Circuit Failure TR circuits, indicating an invalid pattern in TR_D. Condition caused by a short to ground or an open in P/N, D, R, 2 or 1 circuits. Open in the taillamp ground circuit. This DTC can be set by an incorrectly adjusted TR sensor. Increase in control pressure (harsh shifts). Defaults to D for an invalid position. MIL on. Inspect the taillamp ground circuit. Go To Pinpoint Test C .

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.
