I have the car listed above, 3.5L V6. My throttle position sensor went bad so I changed it out. I had to change the whole throttle body out because the TPS is connected to it. Is it true that you have to reprogram it? Because after I put the new one on it still is acting the same way as the old one did.
Do you
have the same problem?

Chances are the old one was okay and it is the throttle pedal position switch that is the problem. can you tell me if there are any codes?

Here is a guide to help you get started:

The codes I got were P2173, P0123, P0222, P2111. So you need a scan tool you cannot do it yourself manually?

You do not need to have it programmed in it should relearn itself after a driving a few miles. You might need to keep your foot on the gas a little while it is calibrating.

Before I changed out the throttle body/TPS I cleaned it out with throttle body cleaner it did not work. Then I got fuel injector cleaner and sprayed it on all the vacuum lines and around the intake manifold and there was no leaks.

I had this problem and the throttle actuator fixed it. I found a used one for $100.00 and all set, no relearn, runs perfect.
