Hi Im David, you will need to replace the throttle pedal position sensor to take care of this issue.
P0122 VOLKSWAGEN - Throttle Pedal Position Sensor/Switch 'A' Circuit Low Possible causes Faulty throttle pedal position sensor Throttle pedal position sensor harness is open or shorted Throttle pedal position sensor circuit poor electrical connection An excessively low voltage from the Throttle Pedal Position (TPP) Sensor is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM). Possible symptoms Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) P0122 VOLKSWAGEN Description The Throttle Pedal Position (TPP) responds to the accelerator pedal movement. This sensor is a kind of potentiometer which transforms the throttle position into output voltage, and emits the voltage signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM). In addition, the sensor detects the opening and closing speed of the throttle valve and feeds the voltage signal to the ECM. Idle position of the throttle valve is determined by the ECM receiving the signal from the throttle position sensor. This sensor controls engine operation such as fuel cut. On the other hand, the Wide open and closed throttle position switch, which is built into the throttle position sensor unit, is not used for engine control.
ok, so when you already have information like that, then why dont you state that I only need the the location of the throttle pedal position sensor.
saves me time.
I understand that but being a bit more specific always helps us so we dont go over the same information that you already have.
standby, i dont think that worked.
here you go
if you want a complete diagnostic for the sensor I have it, but then again you probably already have that too.. If you are any good with electrical then Im sure you wont have any problem doing the diagnostic. there are no 30 cent fixed for this.
here is a diagnostic
anything else I can help you with?
no, she should be ok. just get it taken care of ASAP
please accept the answer and leave a 5 star rating for me if you were satisfied with my assistance. just remember, by accepting the answer and leaving a rating doesnt mean we are done. im here to help you until the vehicle is fixed
