Throttle Position Senso

I have tried searching and not found an appropriate thread. If there is one I apologize for duplications.

I have a 99 F250 and last week I drove the 35 miles to work. As I was pulling into the parking lot the Service light popped on and I had no throttle response. I read the code and had low input in Throttle sensor C. At lunch I went out and looked at the assembly to see what I needed to replace and the truck started and revved fine. Looking online I found that Ford doesn't just sell the sensor and I need the whole pedal assembly. I found an aftermarket sensor and ordered it but upon removing the old one I noticed the old one has a slot whereas the new one has a different looking attachment. I put the old one back in this morning and now I am getting low input on sensor A.

Should I just bite the bullet and pay the high Ford price to by the entire assembly?

No, for those years, you can get just the sensor.

If auto, remove the coulumn shell and inspect the wires from the OD/shifter lever. My buddy had a freyed yellow wire, that did the same thing as yours.
