  • Q:

    after asking the question about the code P0122 on 1999 dodge stratus 2.5 v6 I followed your advice and it was determend that the throttle position sensor that i bought from advance was defective. I replaced it and no more code But,The reason for replacing this and the Idle vent control valve is I have a low idle,,When the car is in park it idles fine about 700 800 rpm's when i drive and come to a stop with the car still in gear the rpm's slowly drops to 500 450 if i put a load on the engine like the AC or Defroster the idle goes back up. If i put the car in park then back in drive the idle is fine or if i tap the throttle real quick it goes back up and is fine untill i drive and come to a stop..then it goes back down it kinda has me thinking its something to do with powertrain??. sometimes the rpm's gets so low my oil light flickers or comes on do you have any idea what is wrong.. thanks

      It can be due to number of reasons, unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis.

      A:

      This part BWD Throttle Position Sensor, Part No. EC3206 is an exact fit for your 1999 Dodge Stratus 2.5L V6. A P0122 code means that the the car's computer has detected that the throttle position sensor is reporting too low a voltage. On some vehicles that lower limit is 0.17 - 0.20 volts. If the signal value is less than 0.17V then the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) sets this code. Could be an open or a short to ground in the signal circuit., SYMPTOMS - may include: Rough or low idle., Stalling., Surging., No/little acceleration., other symptoms may also be present., CAUSES: A code P0122 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: Throttle Position Sensor not mounted securely., Throttle Position Sensor circuit short to ground or another wire., Faulty Throttle Position Sensor., Damaged computer (PCM-Powertrain Control Module)., POSSIBLE DIAGNOSTICS: check the throttle position sensor, wiring connector, and wiring for breaks etc. Repair or replace as necessary., Check the voltage at the throttle position sensor (refer to a service manual for your vehicle for specific information). If the voltage is too low that is indicative of a problem. Replace if necessary., If recently replaced the throttle position sensor, it may need to be adjusted. On some vehicles the installation instructions call for the throttle position sensor to be properly aligned or adjusted., If there are no symptoms at all, the problem may be intermittent and clearing the code may resolve the issue temporarily. If this is the case then you should definitely check the wiring to be sure it is not rubbing on anything, grounding etc., as this may cause the code to come back.
