Customer Question
Engine light is on...

Engine light is on, auto zone scan said I need P1120 TP sensor. How do i install it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

I thought that's what the auto zone did. They gave me a print-out.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercury?

Sable LS 2003

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sable yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't tried anything yet. If it's an easy install, I'll take a shot at it.
