FistHammer Duuuude wtf! Talk about bad luck all day!!!

This is a new one too me. Man your gonna understand this car a lot better after you chase all these issues out.

Good luck, I'm sure you'll get it, just be sure to post pics of anything you touched on the car so the smart guys can see what's unplugged or going to the wrong hole!

Doge It looks like its the same on 06's. It just has 6 wires instead of 3. Looks like they all go straight to the ecu.

The wires can't be that long...they are right by the ecu. Id just pull the loom and stuff off and inspect them all. Then retape/loom.

Doge The wiring diagram I have is for an 05 with a cable throttle and the tps doesn't run through any fuses. All the wires run to the ecu.

Follow the wires from it and check 'em all.

MartyMcfly So I took out the plug too the throttle position sensor, noticed a few bent prongs on the inside of the sensor. I straightened them out and pushed the plug back in (I dont get that snap like you normally do with your other plugs).

Anyhow, if I have the TPS plugged in, the car wont start. If I unplug the TPS plug, the car fires right up. Also, the TPS is making a loud, noticeable mechanical hum with the plug plugged in. What the heck!

Any suggestions?

Where's Captain Picard when you need him?!

Doge On the throttle body. Black little box with usually 3 wires going to it. But the electronic throttle bodies may have more wires.

I bet this issue is related to the other issue. Trace the wires at the tps back, see if any of them are fried.

Motorcitydak Call up the local auto parts stores to see if they rent the diagnostic code scanners, or find someone in the area that has one. Your check engine light is on because of the exhaust but it may now have other reasons for being on as well. You may also have a wiring problem too, which is going to be loads of fun!

the ladies in this gif remind me of me and the rest of lotus forums, the guy in the clip reminds me of turbo phil.

MartyMcfly yes, its an 06, so drive by wire.

stock TB & stock Pedal. CE Light is on due to test pipe, but dont have a scanner to check codes...ARGHH. I think the stock ECU controls idle, and the Stand alone controls throttle response.

Thanks for the link Michael.

doug_porsche hoping it an 05 and the cable just came loose.
10-11-2012 05:38 AM
Doge You have an 06 right? So its an electronic throttle?

Motorcitydak Uh oh, ill start with is your check engine light on? Which of your ecm's is in control of the throttle. If you could, post up a pic of your throttle body and throttle pedal just to make sure they are stock

Do you know what all things your stand alone ecm controls?
