TPS, How do you tell if is bad or not?
I have just completed a complete engine build and a trans replacement with a rebuild. Right away I got trans error codes 12&14. 12 being ecessive small tps output, and 14 improperly adjusted tps. I have erased the codes and now only get 14. Also the car is in limp mode.
But this is my problem. I followed the instructions from from one of the links I found on this site how to adjust. Useing the instructions testing terminal 1&4 on the tps I should have 5k ohms at the closed position, but I have 4.04k ohms. The next step was to move to terminal 2&4 and it should be .9 k ohms closed, mine was .53, and it should read 5k ohms at the wide open position, but mine is 4.36. I can get it to .9k ohms by turning the tps almost all the way clockwise but can't get it to the 5k ohms.
This does'nt change anything, and it makes the safc show about 2% when it should read 0.
Does this mean the tps went bad?
