    I replaced my TPS cause I could not get the code to go away and the new oem one seems like it's bad, cause the car cranks fine and then starts to idle a lot higher than it should. I guess my question is does anything need to be reset after this is changed other than the fault codes or calibrated in any way? The old one did not run like this I just kept getting the codes for TPS fault. I just wanted to be sure before I returned this one to my local ford dealer.

    What were the exact codes you were getting?
    There is nothing to be reset/reprogrammed/calibrated, however you do have to install it correctly or it will be damaged.

    I can't remember off hand now cause it was throwing the code for a while and I had the other repairs made on my car and time got away from me. But I seem to have got it working, I used the ForScan Tool and Reset all adaptations and it started to idle correct.

    But I just went out and checked it and it was doing the same thing again so I guess that did not fix it. I will grab my scan tool out here in a few mins and get the code cause the check engine light was back on.

    It was code p0122 sensor circuit low input and I changed back to the old TPS and reset everything again and it started running good again. Maybe the code won't come back this time otherwise the hunting begins to say the least.

    It might be a bad/dirty connector contact or a frayed wire.

      The plastic tab is broken on the connector so that will be my first thing to replace. Can you help me with a part number for that please? I want to order a new connector it does stay tight but since the tab is broken you never know if that could be the issue.

      Should be 1U2Z-14S411-AFB
      I have one of my throttle body connectors zip tied on. I can't remember if it is the TPS or the throttle body motor.

        That might be a good idea till I can afford that connector. This might be something I could go aftermarket for. I have seen them going for around $20 with good reviews.

        AFAIK, aftermarket is okay on the connector.
