Correspondingly, does a throttle body need to be programmed?
In fact, on some engines a new throttle body needs to be programmed with a factory, or equivalent, scan tool. The technician cannot even clean the carbon out of the throttle body in some cases without setting a "check engine" light.
Additionally, how do I reset my electronic throttle body? Turn the ignition switch on and wait 3 seconds. Immediately after the 3 seconds, the accelerator pedal must be pressed and released 5 times within 5 seconds. Wait 7 seconds and fully press the accelerator pedal and hold for approximately 20 seconds until the check engine light stops blinking and stays on.
Likewise, what happens when throttle body sensor goes bad?
What happens when my throttle position sensor goes bad. When a TPS goes bad, then the car's throttle body won't function properly. When the throttle gets stuck in an open position than your vehicle will receive too much air and cause it to have a high or fluctuating idle.
