Ford Taurus - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Sounds like the Throttle Plate is sticking

You were fooled into changing the TPS because of the code

Not the way you diagnose vehicle issues

You find out why a sensor--- good or bad set the code

Get some CRC Throttle Body Cleaner & follow the instructions

Don't need much sprayed around the throttle plate

Then have someone step on gas pedal to confirm success

May need the key on

Your low input is the throttle not returning to home position

Almost like the sensor was telling you what was wrong

Fun stuff isn't it & not easy to understand

Any number of connections or components may be wet . Make sure the air filter is dry . Unplug connections and spray a spurt of WD-40 on them and plug them back while listening for the click of a good connection .

First off you open your trunk and take the body bolts off of the top of the bumper cover Than you go to the back of the back tires and take out the two or three screws Than you go underneath the car in the back and take off the rest of the plastic clips and it will come off

ok so when you press a separate button for the others do you feel a click and the button stays in till you press it again and it comes out but when your driver button is pushed in it just come out and doesn't stay in the switch is broken inside and the lock isn't engaging inside holding the button in /or is it that the switch stays illuminated showing its on but no heat from the seat element if that's the case you have to get under the seat cover to the element and possible clean the plug and connector corrosion can get in there from moisture or that element has failed ok

if yours is an automatic it might be the MAF sensor, if you unplug the MAF sensor and it drives again i would check the MAF sensor to see if its still working as it could be coated with muck from a damaged air filter or if you have change the air filter it could of let muck onto the sensor, when changing a dirty air filter its best to clean the MAF sensor with MAF sensor cleaner at the same time.
