If the trotle pedal sensor is bad will it cose the car to mot idle
Kia Mechanic: EricFromCT, Technician replied 11 months ago

Usually it will cause the car to ONLY idle. Most common issue is the high pressure fuel pump. You should make sure you have good fuel pressure from the fuel tank to the high pressure pump as well.

If i desconec the pedal sensor to see if thats the promblem will the car run or not
Kia Mechanic: EricFromCT, Technician replied 11 months ago

There is no set answer for that as I have never tried that. The car may run but will definitly be in a limp mode. It is worth trying.
