What does a throttle position sensor replacement involve?

Depending on the manufacturer, a number of different processes will need to be done in order to access the throttle potentiometer, however the mechanic will need to do some of the following basic steps

  • Once confirmed that the throttle potentiometer is faulty, they will continue on to replacing it.
  • Once replaced, the mechanic will start the engine and recheck the error codes

Can I do a throttle position sensor replacement myself?
