Textbook Problem

While discussing throttle-by-wire systems: Technician A says that a spring on the throttle shaft provides the limp-home feature. Technician B says that most systems have redundant processors and the TP and accelerator pedal sensors send redundant input signals. Who is correct?

a. Technician A

b. Technician B

c. Both A and B

d. Neither A nor B

Expert Solution
To determine

Whether Technician A or Technician B is correct.

Explanation of Solution
