Textbook Problem

While discussing TP sensor diagnosis: Technician A says that a four-wire TP sensor contains an idle switch. Technician B says that in some applications, the TP sensor mounting bolts may be loosened and the TP sensor housing rotated to adjust the voltage signal with the throttle in the idle position. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A

  • Technician B
  • Both A and B
  • Neither A nor B
  • To determine

    The technician with correct approach.

    Explanation

    Given information:

    While discussing TP sensor diagnosis:

    Technician A says that a four-wire TP sensor contains an idle switch.

    Technician B says that in some applications, the TP sensor mounting bolts may be loosened and the TP sensor housing rotated to adjust the voltage signal with the throttle in the idle position.

    The position sensors help in identifying the location of components of an automobile. TP sensor helps in locating the position of the throttle and it acts as a potentiometer. The throttle sensor generates signals which result in locating the position and opening of the throttle. The throttle shaft is present in the sensor which helps in rotating the wiper arm when it is rotated.

    The throttle sensor is installed on the body of a throttle. Generally, a basic configuration of the throttle plate contains three wires. Each wire has a different function...
