TPS Issue

Starts fine, idles fine. No throttle response from an idle on occasions. Seems to happen when the cab is warm or always when the floor heat vent is on. The kicker is I have the stupid adjustable pedals which more than triples the cost (over $500). Would like to convert back to standard fixed pedals. Will the plugs work? Or just change the sensor only.

Sounds like your idle position switch. Do you get a SES lite? This has happened to me. Take out the pedal assy, spray the idle position switch with contact cleaner, not the TPS. Work the switch after you sprayed it with contact cleaner. I have not been able to find just the switch, but there is a replacement for just the TPS. Hope this helps.

Yes the motor icon comes on. Sometimes after a few agonizing moments sitting a a green light it will clear and the pedal comes back. Usually I have to quickly shut the truck down and restart it. I have sprayed the TPS but I will do as you suggested with the assembly out. Thanks will let you know how it comes out.

My friend had the same problem. He removed the adjustable petals and put regular ones on and never happened again.

I'm having same problem driving home last night running 70 mph I went to speed up and my truck went to idle. Not good running 70 I slowed all the way down to 40 before it started working again. Did this all the way home about 20 miles. Went out this morning and everything is working fine. It was raining not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Check engine light was coming on when it would do this. Set the cruise and would run fine. Sorry to bring back an old post.

My truck did this during the summer on humid nights. I got another pedal assembly out of my parts truck but it turned out to just be the idle switch on the pedal like has been suggested. Going one 6 months without a blip now
