    Did you by chance make a mistake when installing the TPS, then correct it.

    I dont believe we did. We installed it right the first time. Why do you ask? Maybe i got a bad tps or is now not working properly. Maybe the wiring?

    Sometimes people first mount it in the wrong position and it goes to the stop instead of the direction it was made to work. If this might been done the sensor has been ruined and will not work.
