    How Do I Replace T.P.S. on 08 15f???

    Hey can anyone give detailed instructions on how to replace the Throttle Position Sensor on an 08 15f?

    Does the battery have to be disconnected? Does the throttle have to be 100% closed, 100% open, or in the idle position??? Any ecu reset or reprogram needed?

    My dealer is selling me the part for $52.00...

    Lately whenever I suddenly let off the throttle at speed it almost stalls and then jumps right back up to idle all by itself. I am told this is a bad TPS...???

    Any info / pictures / diagrams would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm thinking you should have the ecu scanned for codes before you replace the tps. It certianly sounds like a tps thats having a problem, but it could be something else too. Remember, most dealers will not do a refund on electrical parts so if this happens to be something else you could end up spending more money and have a tps you don't need.
    The tps isn't hard to replace , just takes a good sense of feel , feeling for the "click" to know where to set it at.

    In a couple cases i have seen a map sensor do the same thing, .. just food for thought

    Yeah the only problem is I cant bring it to the dealer without spending at least $250.00

    Last time I had it in it was that much and all they did was pour in two bottles of ring-free and say have a nice day.

    Does anyone know where I can get it scanned for codes without it costing and arm and a leg??? Im in Sarasota FL...

    I'm hoping it's just the TPS. Ski has 160 hrs with no prior issues.

    You might ask Skip if he knows. Most reputable dealers don't just charge you 250.00 for walking in the door. Might consider looking for another dealer in the area that is willing to help. Im not sure but Skip might be just down the road from you
