a. Connect the digital circuit tester to the terminals of the throttle body sensor assembly coupler as shown.


  • Positive tester probe → gray/red terminal "1"
  • Negative tester probe → gray/black terminal "2"

b. Measure the throttle position sensor input voltage.

Out of specification → Replace or repair the wire harness.


c. Connect the digital circuit tester to the terminals of the throttle body sensor assembly coupler as shown.
