HI
did your car have (ETS) electronic throttle control system
the TPSis a part of this system
but you can test it by using diagnoses scan tool to check the TPS value when press or depress the accelerator pad.
so you can tell us the NO. of DTC for example(P0122)
ASK FOR MORE INFORMATION

Have you replaced your PCV hose? If it gets sucked in it will cause a lot of problems.

Find where the throttle cable goes the the throttle body. Now on the opposite side of the throttle body is the TPS 3 wires/plug.

    Why would throttle position sensor need to be replaced multiple times?


    Sounds like the Voltage to the TPS is to high, burning them out to soon, unfortunately the only thing I can think of is a FULL COMPUTER DIAGNOSTIC !!

    Engine cuts out and does not accelerates


    you will have both a throttle position sensor and a peddle position sensor both fitted to your throttle ,the cars ECU must pick up both sensors so it is not doing so you may need to change the throttle body.as you can not just change the sensors on there own.

    Where is the TPS sensor located,2004 Nissan Titan 5.6 v-8


    The 2004 nissan titan is drive by wire, meaning there is no cable to control the gas pedal to throttle.
    This system is computer controlled with a motor at throttle body and pedal sensors.

    the TPS throttle position sensor is located inside the throttlebody . on most of these the complete throttle body must be replaced as there is no sperate tps sensor it is complete,
    i would check and make sure this is the problem . GM started making TPS replacement sensors for there throttle bodies.

    Where is the thorttleposition sensor on 2001jeep cherokee


    The 3 wire Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is mounted on the throttle body and is connected to the throttle blade.
    The TPS is a 3wire variable resistor that provides the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) with an input signal (voltage) that represents the throttle blade position of the throttle body. The sensor is connected to the throttle blade shaft. As the position of the throttle blade changes, the resistance (output voltage) of the TPS changes.
    The PCM supplies approximately 5 volts to the TPS. The TPS output voltage (input signal to the PCM) represents the throttle blade position. The PCM receives an input signal voltage from the TPS. This will vary in an approximate range of from .26 volts at minimum throttle opening (idle), to 4.49 volts at wide-open throttle. Along with inputs from other sensors, the PCM uses the TPS input to determine current engine operating conditions. In response to engine operating conditions, the PCM will adjust fuel injector pulse width and ignition timing.
    The PCM needs to identify the actions and position of the throttle blade at all times. This information is needed to assist in performing the following calculations:

In response to engine operating conditions, the PCM will adjust fuel injector pulse width and ignition timing.
    The PCM needs to identify the actions and position of the throttle blade at all times. This information is needed to assist in performing the following calculations:


    Ignition timing advance Fuel injection pulse-width Idle (learned value or minimum TPS) Off-idle (0.06 volt) Wide Open Throttle (WOT) open loop (2.608 volts above learned idle voltage) Deceleration fuel lean out Fuel cutoff during cranking at WOT (2.608 volts above learned idle voltage) A/C WOT cutoff (certain automatic transmissions only)


    Removal & Installation

    3.7L & 4.0L

    1. Disconnect TPS electrical connector.
    2. Remove TPS mounting screws.
    3. Remove TPS.

    To Install:
    The TPS is mounted to the throttle body. The throttle shaft end of throttle body slides into a socket in the TPS. The TPS must be installed so that it can be rotated a few degrees. (If sensor will not rotate, install sensor with throttle shaft on other side of socket tangs). The TPS will be under slight tension when rotated.
    1. Install TPS and retaining screws.
    2. Tighten screws to 7 Nm (60 inch lbs.) torque.
    3. Connect TPS electrical connector to TPS.
    4. Manually operate throttle (by hand) to check for any TPS binding before starting engine.

    4.7L
    1. Remove air duct and air resonator box at throttle body.
    2. Disconnect TPS electrical connector.
    3. Remove two TPS mounting bolts (screws).
    4. Remove TPS from throttle body.

    To Install:
    The throttle shaft end of throttle body slides into a socket in TPS. The TPS must be installed so that it can be rotated a few degrees. If sensor will not rotate, install sensor with throttle shaft on other side of socket tangs. The TPS will be under slight tension when rotated.
    1. Install TPS and two retaining bolts.
    2. Tighten bolts to 7 Nm (60 inch lbs.) torque.
    3. Manually operate throttle control lever by hand to check for any binding of TPS.
    4. Connect TPS electrical connector to TPS.
    5. Install air duct/air box to throttle body.

    Hope this helps

    Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) !!

    On a 04 camry with 2.4 ltr engine, can I replace just the throttle position sensor or do i have to replace the entire throttle body? The engine code said faulty throttle body.


    I think the terms "Throttle Positon Sensor", TPS and "Throttle Body" can be misleading at least in regards to the 04 Camry.

    My 04 Camry gave a diagnostic reading of P2121 for my problem "Throttle PEDAL position switch D circuit". However, we changed out the complete Throttle Body/TPS (Toyota Part #22030-0H020) that did NOT fix problem.

    The 04 Camry TPS Electronic Module "Throttle Positon Sensor" is factory assembled and riveted to the side of the throttle body. The only way to service/inspect it would be to cut off or drill out the rivets. Not sure you could open the darn thing if you got it off, but that seems to be the only way Toyota sells them!!

    Hopefully a new Throttle PEDAL Position Sensor (Toyota Part # 78010-33010 PEDAL ASSY, ACC)
    will fix it. This is located under the dash near the accelerator pedal.

    So, now I would recommend FIRST to replace the "Throttle PEDAL Positon Sensor" (it is much, much cheaper) and then the Throttle Body/TPS assembly!! Unless of course, you get a diagnostic code as you did for "faulty throttle body!!

    Have a 2004 kia sorento. have a transaxel fault and a TPS SIGNAL MALFUNTION FROM ECM TO TCM. WHAT IS THIS


    Your transaxle is the transmission. The TPS is the throttle position sensor. ECM is the is the engine's computer. The TCM is the transmission computer. So, the throttle position sensor is not reporting to either and needs to be replaced. They seem to be about $180 for the part.
