Starts fine, idles fine. Slow responsive throttle. Anything over 60-65% throttle it will throw it to idle and no throttle response. Shut truck off restart fine.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Clear all codes. Start truck up and have the egr throttle position code and and egr performance code still there. Tried unplugging all sensors running 5v reference individually and no luck. Shortly after truck runs with out touching pedal it will throw the app sensor correlation codes
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Once it goes to idle and looses pedal it will throw a code for TAC system- forced idle

Thanks for the updater. If all components are new and the harness is new and the firewall connector pins etc are good then have your PCM reflashed/reprogrammed to factory settings and the most current updates and then see if the codes return. It could be a software issue. Let me know

I just had the pcm ficm and tcm all flashed to latest greatest tunes. Pcm didn't have a vin listed on it. With the flashes it got rid of the egr codes but still getting dead pedal and codes p2138 and p2140. Can't give more then half pedal still. Senior diesel tech at local ford is stumped.

This is an odd one for sure. If the TPS is new then it only leaves the harness. Run a test harness from the TPS and splice into at the PCM connector far enough back you can reconnect the existing harness after. With the bypass harness see if the problem still exists. If so there is a harness problem throwing off the voltage signal. Let me know

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.
