Throttle position sensor issue's


Asked by Nov 13, 2014 at 08:31 AM about the 2003 Dodge Caravan SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 03 dodge caravan. I've replaced
the throttle position sensor 3 times in the
last 6 month. The last time I had it replaced
was less than a week ago. This morning the  
check engine light came on and the van
started shaking. If I let off the gas and
press gas peddle to the floor it will
accelerate with no hesitation. Is there
anything else it could possibly be? The only
code that it reads is a throttle position

Doesn't always mean the sensor is faulty. Did you clean the throttle body and Idle control valve of carbon yet?
