Default can't reset TPS.... for the ******* life of me.

i adjusted my throttle screw to where the car idles nicely, and i can't get it to reset to zero no matter what i do. i've flashed it like 10 times since then. i've done the "reset procedure" about 20 times with no results. it's still sitting between 4.5% and 4.7% throttle. what the ****???

That would be the issue. I believe you need to be under .6 with the blade closed. You can open up the bolt holes on the tps and clock it until you get the proper voltage or bring the set screw back down and use another method of getting the air you wanted for the idle

From what I have heard and have had a similar issue...the tps voltage will not reset to 0% throttle unless it is below .70V Try moving the voltage down and then doing a relearn and it should reset to 0%.

I just elongated the mounting holes and re-clocked it until it reads 0%. Success.

The stock WOT voltage threshold is 4.9, but can be changed up to 32 volts with Hp Huners.

The stock min threshold is .15 volts.
