Their is a few ways to test the throttle position sensor. One way is to hook up a scaner and go to the data menu. Their will be a place in the menu that will say tps % and tps v. You want to watch the one with the v. The v stands for volts from the t.p.s. Basicly the t.p.s. is a variable resistor. The further you depress the the throttle the more or less volts you get from the t.p.s. The voltage should gradualy go up as you slowly depress the pedal. If the voltage jumps around then the t.p.s. is bad. Another way is to get a volt meter and remove the connector to sensor, touch the contacts on the sensor with the sensor still hooked up and have a friend depress the pedal slowly.
You can find the tps on the opposite side of the cable on the throttle.
Please contact me if you have any more questions or comments.

You can test the sensor with an ohm meter . Unplug the conecter from the sensor . There are three connecter pins . The top being one and the bottom three.
With the meter leads accross terminals 1 and 2 and the pedal at idle position the meter should read 20 ohms .
At wide open position it should read 6000 ohms .
Then put leads accross terminals 2 and 3 .
At idle position meter shouls read 0
at wide open should read 4600 ohm,

Well the TPS would probably not keep it from starting, just not accelerating.
You would check the sensor with a meter for resistance.

Check the connections, you probably have an issue there. maybe a bent or broken pin. Also, why did you replace it in the first place - did you already have a problem?

Testimonial: "Well my wife took it in and had the check engine light tested because when on the freeway the car would jerk constantly then the test read that the throttle body sensor was faulty so I switched it out then all of a sudden the idol would fluctuate on its own"
