2002 Hyundai XG350 Question: What is the part number/description for the Accel. Position Sensor?

My daughters car started losing speed and acceleration. Check engine light came on. She had it towed home. I checked with a scanner and it displays the following codes: P1151, P1191, P1193, and P1151 again. P1151 says Accel Position Sensor, but I can't find any information on one for purchase. I can find throttle position sensors, (they all have 4 pins) but this unit attached to the end of the accelerator cable has 8 pins. (Located under hood mounted on the passengers side wheel well facing the rear of the car) Is this the correct sensor and where can I get one?

    the fly by wire system has 2 components. the throttle body which houses the 2 motors and the pedal sensor which contains the module for the control. replacing them both is around 800-900 just for the parts.

    Thank you for the response. Whew, mighty proud of their stuff aren't they? I'm going to have to look a bit deeper to narrow it down. Still looking for part numbers for the pedal sensor.

    Not sure how far back their information goes back but Hyundai as a car manufacturer put a lot of free technical information and workshop manuals on line for Hyundai owners. Check out www.hmaservice.com lots of great information.
