p0121
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
a gear ratio code for the transmission but the transmission only acts up when its high idle

Is this code still coming up with this issue after the TPS was replaced?

the p0121 tps code has been coming on no matter what the transmission was taken out redone and reinstalled it works perfect except when the idle goes up to 2500 then it wont shift out of first gear it seems to be worse when the car is warm

O.k.,the transmission usually wont shift properly or at all with the tps code issue here.The code has to be diagnosed and repaired to resolve this fault.Since the tps was already replaced this may be a fault with the wiring running to the tps or an issue with the engine computer needing replaced.Below is the diagnostic procedure that needs to be followed for this code to then be able to locate and repair this issue.This has to be followed to pinpoint which component is at fault.The wiring diagram is also included.

the car had both these codes and when it shifted before was very sloppy but now the shifts are fine except high idle

I posted an answer above on what needs done.This needs to be followed to pinpoint the fault.I suspect as most common a broken wire leading to the TPS.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here or above ( should be a link to click on ) as this is how I receive credit for my time,this can be done at any time and you can still come back here and reply if needed.Your 5 star rating is appreciated
