needed to be replaced, but
this code is for the top,

is inside the vehicle? These

p0122 is for the throttle position sensor on throttle body, check for broken wires to the sensor and try cleaning the throttle body.

That's what we did, and still nothing, the lights are and cel. But I'm seeing different things when I look up the code, so should I just order a new throttle body or change a sensor?



replace the throttle body.


yep replace the throttle body. its easy enough to do yourself jsut make sure you buy the gaskets for it as well.
