Quality TPS!

Great product, fit perfectly. Came with gaskets and o-rings that the stock TPS didn't have (which is probably why the stock TPS failed) BWD makes some quality stuff :)

This did not help, no other code has came up, truck still surges, but check engine light is out.
Smoke test has been suggested I assume the part is not defective as the check engine light has stayed off.

    Comments about BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

    Must clear computer memory to re-calibrate to new sensor. If not, Idle will be 2000-3000 rpm and will not settle. Simply disconnect battery, negative first, then positive end. once both are disconnected, hold them together or use a wrench and bridge them together for 15 seconds. Then reconnect the battery, positive end first. This erases the memory and idle will be 600-700 RPM. You will, however, have to drive for about a week as the computer relearns all adaptive driving settings.

        It's been about 2 months now and my surges are gone. I was leary about not buying OEM but for the price I figured why not. I guess I got lucky based on other reviews.

                      Good price and value. Easy to install.
                      Not so great that it didn't come complete with the winning lotto numbers.

                              Hi Scott, good question! This part comes with limited lifetime replacement warranty. The lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

                              With respect to your inquiry on the BWD Throttle Position Sensor - Part No. EC3208 a bad throttle position sensor can cause idling issues.
