not sure of code just went by what the mechanic said , havent tried anything else just put new tps on and nothing happened , could hold in my hand and truck would do the same, so i tried putting old one back on and still have no pedal but truck truck idles smoothly , craziest thing i ever saw. one mechanic suggested that it could not read the new part and would have to be reprogrammed . i spent all my savings on this truck for my mom to drive since my dad passed away a few months ago, and she has no way to the doctor or grocery store, just dont know what to do.

Thank you has been very hard for me, the 8th is a W on my vin.
Ford Mechanic: Shawn, Auto Service Technician replied 5 years ago

Hi JACUSTOMER-h0ffj471,

 

 

 

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. You are very welcome, after the TPS is replaced you must clear the code from the PCM memory, which will require a diagnostic scan tool.

this will give me back my accelerator pedal ?
Ford Mechanic: Shawn, Auto Service Technician replied 5 years ago

Hi,

 

 

 

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

Clearing the PCM isnt likely going to fix the problem, the 2005 has known issues with the throttle body failing. There is a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) from Ford in regards XXXXX XXXXX situation, if you need I can send you a copy of the TSB.

 



Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
