· The throttle position sensor (TPS) is located on the driver's side of the throttle body
· Remove the plastic engine cover to access the throttle body, then locate the TPS. You may be required to remove the hose that connects to the IAC valve as well as the metal bracket that mounts the plastic engine cover. You will want good access to the TPS to ensure you do not strip the screws.
· Disconnect the wiring harness that plugs into the TPS by pressing the locking tab and then pulling towards the front of the truck.
· Once removed, the TPS should pull right off the throttle body.
· To install the new TPS, position the front of the TPS at an approx. 45 degree angle downwards with the harness plug facing you, insert it into position, then twist back up until the bolt holes line up. Reinstall the bolts, using a small dab of thread locker on each to ensure they will not vibrate loose.

Parts:
1. Throttle Position Sensor - $ 55.44

Tools:
1. Scan Tool
2. Screwdriver
3. Multimeter

Procedure:
1. Locate the OBD data link connector (DLC). Refer to your owner’s manual for the specific location.

  • Tip: The OBD-I data link connector is usually located in the engine compartment near the battery or the fuse box. The OBD-II connector (post 1995 cars) is usually located beneath the instument panel next to the steering column.
2. Turn your key to the“ON” position. Do not start the engine.

3. Plug your scan tool into the OBD data link connector. Turn on the scan tool and select the appropriate steps to read the diagnostic trouble code (DTC).

Scanner plugged into OBD-II data link connector.
  • Tip: The OBD-II diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a 5 character alphanumeric code. The first digit is a letter that indicates the component group, the second digit is OBD mandated or manufacturer specfic, the third digit is a subgroup, and the fourth and fifth digits define the component and basic problem.

Engine light came on. Auto parts free diagnosis says its the throttle sticking. I clean it, buy a new sensor, and do the relearn procedure.


The throttle body bore must be spotless. It tends to build carbon at the chamber where the throttle plate touches at the fully closed position. After you solve that cleaning issue, use Lucas additive or Mercury Marine (yes, that one) Quickleen twice a year. Presto, no reoccuring issues. Be thorough !

Where is 2003 ford focus camshafts position sensor


Camshaft Position Sensor
The camshaft position (CMP) sensor detects the position of the camshaft. The CMP sensor identifies when piston No. 1 is on its compression stroke. A signal is then sent to the powertrain control module (PCM) and used for synchronizing the firing of sequential fuel injectors. The Coil On Plug (COP) Ignition applications also use the CMP signal to select the proper ignition coil to fire. The input circuit to the PCM is referred to as the CMP input or circuit.
There are two types of CMP sensors: the three pin connector Hall-effect type sensor (Figure 25) and the two pin connector variable reluctance sensor

What does a throttle positioning censor for an 05 ford focus look like


I suggest you google 05 ford focus throttle positioning sensor. This sensor keeps you air intake throttle at the proper position when the engine is cold and changes position when the engine has warmed up. to locate the sensor, remove the hose that comes from the air filter housing to the engine. the hose you removed was connected to the air throttle. you can manipulate the position of this throttle by having someone push the gas pedal down slowly while you watch the throttle move. notice that the gas pedal cable is connected to the mechanism that opens and closes the air throttloe. also notice that beside this mechanism, you have an electric throttle positioning sensor. Pay close attention to the existing throttle positioning sensor before you remove it if you are planning on replacing this sensor. because if you do not install the new sensor in the same degree that the old one was in, you will throw the calibration off. word of advice. buy some throttle cleaner from your local auto parts. turn the car on with the air filter to throttle body hose off and have someone push the gas pedal down slightly to keep the engine from turning off. spray the throttle body cleaner til all the black crud comes off the inside of the throttle body. this dirty crud is what was making your throttle stick and not working properly.
