Unhappy TPS issue or not?

Hi guys

So I wash the car last night and few nights before there was rain not that heavy , it was small rain

Anyway, so I took the car for spin because it was parked all week and I noticed the throttle not responding as it should be, It jerks while accelerating, when I went to drive on the highway to test more, while driving it , it feels the car pulling back and get back up in matter of seconds.

So after I went home and checked the faulty errors

it shows these error codes

P0101
P0122
P0123
P0222
P0223
P0638
P2100
P0171
P2206
P2206

all these errors related to TPS, I am thinking 70% it is TPS faulty but it is expensive from Lotus dealer , any TPS I can find it is cheap it would be great

Update

I have checked this plugin connected to the throttle assembly, it seems to be not electric volt coming from it, So where is the power source of this wire?

What code reader are you using that reads a P2206 on a Lotus? Google tells me that such a code refers to a NOx sensor (usually only on Diesel vehicles, definitely not on a Lotus).

Do you think it is possible that some of the codes being related to the TPS is coincidental? I would first suspect a battery/learning memory reset issue with that many codes. My car has done something like this in the past after a low battery state: https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f33...0/#post5110361 . I got codes P0480, P0481, P0508, P0444, P0447, P2648, P0171, P0172, and P0507.

After resetting the codes and letting the battery charge, only the P0171 came back. This code eventually cleared after driving the car for a while too (and letting it have enough time after shutdown to run its memory save routines).

The thing is I bought the battery a month ago , no way it is battery issue

Well, it is fixed.

I took off the Air filter box and cleaned it and cleaned the MAP sensor and it worked !

Thanks for the support guys
