throttle position sensors bad

Thank you very much! How do I find out where those sensors are and if I can replace them, please?

ya know i was thinking and it may even ne something acting up with your cruise control somewhere or the traction control (anti slip). take it to a local autozone and have them hook up a code scanner. theyll do it free and give you a little print out of the code its throwing. go from there. im not a ford guy but it sounds like one of those 3 things to me. also ask them to reset your computer with the scan yool. ps. the tps is on or around your throttle body (like a carb) and i dont think you can just buy one and slap it on. i think they need calibrated and adjusted first. cruise control operates off of vacuum and a signal from a speed sensor prolly on or near the tranny. the traction control stuff is greek to me.lol. i had a 99 z28 that had that crap. if you broke the tires loose even a smidge it locked the gas pedal to a point where slipping stopped. almost put me in a ditch a few times. thats all i got man. i suggest investing in a chiltons book and if possible the factory service manual. good luck

check your batteries you may have a bad one
