This will vary in an approximate range of from. I was about 90 minutes into a 3. With the ignition off, test for resistance between the low-voltage reference circuit and ground. YourMechanic offers certified mobile mechanics who will come to your home or office to diagnose and repair your vehicle. Those who demonstrate they cannot follow the rules will be warned and posts removed. The throttle position sensor has the two sensors.
Always post the code number- often times descriptions are incorrect- Are you capable of scanning higher codes- manufacturer specific ie p2135 p2138? If you wanted to save a few bucks, you can replace it yourself, they are super easy to swap out. Ensure that either device is updated with the latest available software version before performing the reprogramming event. Your gas mileage will also be terrible, so you should try and fix it as soon as you can. When the engine trouble happens I turn the car off for a minute or two and it goes away.

This action is performed in real-time, and response is virtually instantaneous. If your spark plugs look good, problems with your ignition system can also preventing a spark. Grasp and hold the throttle body in the previously hand held upward position. Please read the on the subject for details. Linking to outside content is generally not allowed, unless it's germane to the current discussion. I have seen a couple of cars coming with this code and I found the wires coming out of the air bag in the steering wheel to be rubing where they go through the steering wheel into the colume, may want to check there first.
These can range from a faulty spark plug lead, shorted kill switch or flywheel key damage. This will allow people to filter out posts that have already been resolved so they can move on to other posts that still need assistance. We're here to help so being rude won't get you very far. Only give advice on something you believe to be true. If the voltage readings of the throttle position sensor and the accelerator position sensor varies too much, then a code P2135 will set. If it doesn't see this comparitive change, P0120 may set.
I just want to check the connector and the wires, not rebuild the engine. The opening angle of the throttle valve is detected by the throttle position sensor which is mounted on the throttle body. What about aftermarket throttle body's. Maintain the throttle body in an upward position. I stated a simple fact, that if you don't then you should probably get professional help!

At the end of my trip, while paying a toll, my car stalled.
During reprogramming, the battery voltage must be maintained within the proper range of 12-15 volts. If that isn't available, provide all you know and explain why. This allows the voltage output of each sensor to be viewed. I'm going to check the connector and the individual wires more closely tomorrow. I pulled over, shut off the engine, popped the hood, and found nothing obvious. I know sometimes documentation is written as though the technician is just entering grade school, but, this one seems to be extra sensitive as well.
