2000 Dodge Neon Repair Question
Mileage: 165,000 miles.
Why would tps signal wire have 4.8 volts coming from the ECM? Is there a limp mode that does this or is it a short coming out of the ECM?
computer sends a 5 volt signal down the line to the sensor. there is a ground wire and a sensor return wire back to the pcm.
I understand, when the sensor is unhooked the sensor return wire reads 4.8 volts from the computer. 5 volt supply wire and ground wire are normal.
that is normal also.
So, testing the tps plug with the key on and the tps unhooked I have 5 volts, 4.8 volts, and ground. That's normal? Why would the computer send 4.8 volts out the signal wire. Shouldn't that wire be an input to the comp not an output?
the return signal when hooked up will lower the voltage back to the pcm.
I noticed that earlier. Thanks, as long as I know that it's acting normal.
