Throttle Position (TP) Sensor.
The TP sensor is a rotary potentiometer sensor that provides a signal to the PCM that is linearly proportional to throttle plate/shaft position. The TP sensor has four operating conditions: closed throttle (idle or deceleration), part throttle (cruise or moderate acceleration), Wide Open Throttle (WOT) and throttle angle rate. The TP sensor signal affects air/fuel ratio, injector timing, idle speed, EGR flow and ignition timing. On some applications, TP sensor input is used in determining transmission Electronic Pressure Control (EPC), shift and Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) scheduling. The TP sensor is mounted on throttle body.
