Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Any one know how to test it? I've looked it up online but i'm not sure if i'm doing it wrong or it is a bad sensor. I have my automotive multimeter.

The best way to check it is to use an automotive scanner. Something like an Actron will let you work the throttle while the key is one but the engine is off and you can see if there are any bad spots. If will show percent open as you open and close the throttle.
