My 2013 Chrysler 200 has 2 codes
My 2013 Chrysler 200 has 2 codes...p0123 & p2173. Dealer says it needs a throttle body and wants almost $1000 to fix it! Is there something I can do or replace that won't crush my wallet so bad? I have cleaned it but it didn't help!
first ...get another opinion a throttle body? i dont think so......... http://repairpal.com/obd-ii-code-p0123 > OBD II Fault Code OBD II P0123 Fault Code Definitionthrottle body Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch "A" Circuit High Input What Does Mean? The Throttle Position Sensor/Switch is located on the Throttle Body of the Intake Manifold and the Pedal Position Sensor/Switch is part of the Accelerator Pedal assembly. These sensors provide precise input from the driver's foot in terms of how MUCH power is needed from the engine and, how URGENTLY power is needed. As the Throttle Position Sensor is rotated from its base resting position to full acceleration, typically, it sends an increasing voltage signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This increasing or decreasing voltage signal is used by the PCM to manage the Air Fuel Ratio and Spark Timing of the engine as well as other Emissions System Components. Code P0123 triggers when the Throttle/Pedal Sensor/Switch "A" Circuit has high output Code P2173 Caused by Vacuum Leak http://www.underhoodservice.com/133346/
