Throttle / Pedal Position Sensor / Switch "A" Circuit Short to Battery or Open

The output voltage of VTA1 is higher than 4.535 V for 2 seconds or more (1 trip detection logic).

  • Throttle position sensor (throttle body with motor assembly)
  • Open in VTA1 circuit
  • Open in ETA circuit
  • Short between VCTA and VTA1 circuits
  • ECM

Comes on

SAE: P0123

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM uses the throttle position sensor to monitor the throttle valve opening angle. If the VTA1 terminal voltage is higher than the threshold, the ECM will illuminate the MIL and store this DTC.

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN

  1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.
  3. Turn the GTS on.
  4. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).
  5. Turn the ignition switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.
  6. Turn the ignition switch to ON [A].
  7. Turn the GTS on.
  8. Start the engine.
  9. With the vehicle stationary, fully depress and release the accelerator pedal [B].
  10. Idle the engine for 2 seconds or more [C].
  11. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes [D].
  12. Read the pending DTCs.

    HINT:

    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.
  13. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Utility / All Readiness.
  14. Input the DTC: P012015.
  15. Check the DTC judgment result.

    GTS Display

    Description

    NORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System normal

    ABNORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System abnormal

    INCOMPLETE

    • DTC judgment not completed
    • Perform driving pattern after confirming DTC enabling conditions

    HINT:

    • If the judgment result is NORMAL, the system is normal.
    • If the judgment result is ABNORMAL, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If the judgment result is INCOMPLETE, perform steps [B] through [D] again.

FAIL-SAFE

When this DTC is stored, the ECM enters fail-safe mode. During fail-safe mode, the ECM cuts the current to the throttle actuator, and the throttle valve is returned to a 7.5° throttle valve opening angle by the return spring. The ECM then adjusts the engine output by controlling the fuel injection (intermittent fuel-cut) and ignition timing, in accordance with the accelerator pedal angle, to allow the vehicle to continue running at a minimal speed. If the accelerator pedal is depressed firmly and gently, the vehicle can be driven slowly.

Fail-safe mode continues until a pass condition is detected, and the ignition switch is turned off.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

HINT:

Read Freeze Frame Data using the GTS. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as Freeze Frame Data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, Freeze Frame Data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

PROCEDURE

READ VALUE USING GTS (THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR NO.1 VOLTAGE)

(a) Disconnect the throttle body with motor assembly connector.

(b) According to the display on the GTS, read the Data List.

5.

READ VALUE USING GTS (THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR NO.1 VOLTAGE)

(a) Connect terminals 4 (E2) and 1 (VTA) of the throttle body with motor assembly connector on the wire harness side.

NOTICE:

If the VTA terminal voltage or the resistance between VTA and E2 is abnormal and terminals 1 (VTA) and 4 (E2) of the throttle body with motor assembly connector are connected, excessive current may flow through the circuit. In this case, do not connect the terminals.

(b) Compare the vehicle of the Data List item Throttle Position Sensor No.1 Voltage after the circuit is shorted to the value when the throttle body with motor assembly connector was connected.

    Front Seat Belt Pretensioners

    The front seat belt pretensioners are designed to deploy in moderate or severe frontal, near frontal collisions.

    In addition, the pretensioners operate when a side collision or a rollover accident is detected. The pretensioners operate differently depending on what types of air bags are equipped. For more details about the seat belt pretensioner operation, refer to the SRS Air Bag Deployment Criteria.
