The throttle position sensor moves with the throttle and sends a voltage signal to the computer indicating throttle angle and speed of movement data. The computer uses this data to measure engine load, adjust timing, fuel delivery, EGR, and converter clutch operation, and clear flood mode.
Our Throttle Position Sensors are designed, manufactured, and tested to maintain specific installed outputs to match OE rather than adjustable consolidated designs.
Integrated circuit (IC) capable of measuring rotation of small magnet attached to throttle shaft, and is calibrated to provide accurate, linear output characteristics
Custom elastomeric seal protects sensor from environmental underhood elements such as dust, vapor, and liquids
Undergoes automated testing to calibrate and electronically lock output voltage accuracy, linearity and slope versus throttle angle
Magnet molded in high-performance polymer to ensure consistent location and low friction with bearing surfaces
