  • Q:

    I replaced my throttle positioning sensor and the same engine pop up. The car accelerates and decelerates causing the transmission to shift erratically. I returned to advanced auto shop and had a service Rep check the engine code. It still showed the TSP with high voltage problem. The Rep then explained to me that the TPS needs to cycle at 6 times so it can adjust with the computer. Is this a correct statement. I think they are trying to sell me a product without adhering to the lifetime warranty. I think the TPS is a defective one and should be replaced with another one. What are your comments on this issue?

      Tony, The TPS errors/codes do not go away automatically unless they are a soft fault , so their statement could be correct . Although there are plenty of vehicles out there that have wiring issues . It would be wise to google your vehicle's technical service bulletins or TSBs to see if your vehicle is having this issue and if its just the TPS or wiring or otherwise.  I was going to replace a sensor on  my daughter's Uplander van and couldn't get access to it , and I'm glad because it ended up being a TSB issue with wiring to a sensor and the wiring short took out the sensor also.

      Hi Tony! Since you didn't mention the specific vehicle and error code, it's hard to tell for sure. Without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. Please provide your vehicle's year, make, model, engine size and error code so I can assist you further. Meanwhile, we would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

  • 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.

      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.
