I thought we were done with the tps codes. What are the exact code numbers you have not code descriptions?

The Injectors are pulsating according to the light flashing and firing in the correct sequential order. Cpttrevor

Then its getting fuel so doesnt make sense why it will run when you prime it.

Like I have stated why? Can the throttle system like the motor APS the ETS motor and the ETS control unit be bad and not giving the signal to the throttle to allow the car to start? Cpttrevor

I know it goes into limp mode when a failure is detected so it limits throttle opening greatly. If its like a gm car if it detects that failure next key cycle it wont start. The kia repair info I have isnt ver very detailed. Let me see if there is a another moderator on here that knows these kias well.

On the scan tool does the tps sensor show.3-1.0 volts without touching the gas pedal?The while holding it to the floor it should read 4.2-4.8 volts?
