Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee. I have just replaced the tps (throttle position sensor) on it a couple of months ago. About a month ago I was riding down the road and the RPM's would go to zero and the jeep would cut off. My step dad replaced the cable that runs from the negative on the battery hoping that would fix the problem. Would someone please help me I have no clue what else could be wrong with it??

It could be the Crank Position Sensor. But that just a guess. BUT.... they are common to go bad, buy one from the dealer, most aftermarket parts (non dealer) are not good.

Where is the throttle positions sensor located


The Throttle Position Sensor, or TPS is connected to the throttle shaft on the throttle body.

Fig. 2: Disengage the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) wiring harness connector

According with the Grand Cherokee Repair Manual, check this removal & installation procedure...
(see Figures 5 and 6)
  1. Remove the air intake tube at the throttle body.
  2. Disengage the TPS wiring connector and remove the two mounting screws.
  3. Carefully remove the TPS from the throttle body.
To install:
  1. The throttle shaft end has a tang that can be fitted into the TPS two different ways. Only one of the installed positions is correct. When correctly positioned, the TPS can be rotated a few degrees. To determine correct positioning, place the TPS onto the throttle body with the throttle shaft tang on one side of the TPS socket. Verify that the TPS can be rotated. If the TPS cannot be rotated, place the TPS on the throttle body with the throttle shaft tang on the other side.
  2. Tighten the two TPS mounting bolts to 60 inch lbs. (7 Nm) and engage the wiring connector.
  3. Manually operate the throttle and check for any binding.
  4. Install the air intake tube.

Depending on the system, P0121 is Throttle/pedal position sensor/switch A circuit range/ performance problem.

5 volts is correct. Those sensors work off of a 5 volt reference signal.
