    TPS and ICM Question

    This car has a lot of electrical issues, but it doesn't bring up any other codes. I had a message that said "service electrical system" Also, the steering wheel controls don't work anymore. The radio changes stations all by it's self and the volume sometimes blasts itself. Also, when the A/C is on the temp will go from Max 60 to 90 and I gotta keep putting it back down to 60 and the fan will kinda do the opposite of what it's set. If I have it's on high it'll all of a sudden go to the low setting. I'm assuming that all has to do with the steering wheel controls. I do have a V/O meter, but don't really know how to use it so that's not gonna help me. lol..

    TPS and ICM Question

    OK, don't see any broken wires. There was one vacuum hose that was all corroded up and I changed it. I changed the TPS and the ICM and still have the same problem. I sprayed the hoses down with starter fluid and didn't notice it rev higher. Still have the code.. When I drove to the junk yard the idle was high. When I drove home it was perfect and It didn't do anything to it yet. So, that's all I can do. Guess I'll have to put the darn thing in the shop. Not sure yet.. My just junk it. Wanna buy it?

    TPS and ICM Question

    Yeah, I saw another one where the ICM was bad. I can change that. I'd have to get a shop to change the switch. I'm not paying a shop for that because that would probably run a couple a hundred at least. I did notice that the ICM is all cracked under the coils. I'm really seeing the junk yard in the very near future for this car. 😮

    TPS and ICM Question

    So I did the job.. That was very easy, but it still has the same darn problem, but no code for it this time. Throttle body is spotless and I can't find any vacuum leaks. I discoed the batt and reconnected it so it can re learn and nothing.. SOSDD... Gasket put on the right way.. I have a P1634 Code. Would a bad ICM make the idle go crazy? It starts at around 800 drops to 650 jumps to 1000+ and just goes nuts.. My next step is to change out the ICM.. If that doesn't work It's heading to the junk yard. I also checked and cleaned fuses..

    I could have used that grill. Mine is broken all at the top where it mounts to the hood.

    TPS and ICM Question

    Oh yeah, I loved this car. Had this for 13 years now. That diamond white paint with the Vogues really looks sharp. It just has so many things wrong with it and I'm not mechanically inclined. But hey, it's perfect for you. You know how to work on these. 👍 😀 I love it, but it's just time to move on. Needs too much for me to deal with. I'm just trying to keep it going a couple more months. 👍

    Well I'll let you know when it goes up for sale. Doesn't look as good anymore and it has a lot of electrical bugs.

    OK, Thanks! Probably getting a PU Truck. Looking at a 2015 Silverado Z71 4X4

    TPS and ICM Question

    No biggie.. appreciate the help.. I'm no mechanic and I usually screw things up when I try and fix things. I'm gonna try though. If I can't finish it I'll call the mobile mechanic out. Just didn't want to pay all that for this. Unfortunately the car isn't that beautiful anymore. Since the drunk driver hit the passenger side the poor car is falling apart. Drivers side looks great though.. It's going up for sale in a few months. These cars don't sell well around here. Figure I'd try and get around $800 or so for it. it's good for around town, but I wouldn't try any kind of long trips. Oh well, Thanks for the info. 👍 😀

    TPS and ICM Question

    OK, I thought so.. I know I'm dumb, but looking at that pic I kept saying to myself "I can't be this dumb" LOL.. Old age is kicking my butt I can tell you that.. 😂 So does the gasket need any adhesive, or no?

    TPS and ICM Question

    OK, last question and I'll leave you alone. In this pic that you posted in your crossover thread is that not the spacer still attached to the engine? This is what's throwing me off. Looks like it stays on still.

    TPS and ICM Question

    OK, but can I take off the TB without removing the spacer? If so, Is it more involved if I do it that way? The way it's looking now I'm gonna end up wasting more money and paying a darn shop to do this. Now I'm getting way too paranoid.

    TPS and ICM Question

    OK, I'll pick up both and figure it out. I only need this car another month or two and it's probably going to the junk yard. It has soooo many problems now I doubt I'll sell it.

    TPS and ICM Question

    Well the car is idling really high and it fluctuates a lot. I cleaned the TB with it still on the motor and it's pretty much clean. The butterfly? is clean and shiny on both sides. When I ran the codes it gave me the TPS code. I forgot the number. So I'm gonna change that next. So next question, how do I know what way the gasket goes?

    TPS and ICM Question

    OK, first of all I've said many times in this site that I'm dumber than a box of rocks. LOL.. It's 100% true.. So thanks for your help. Let me ask you, is the throttle body actually two pieces? Looking at your pic it looks like it is and that you just removed the front half of it. Or, I guess that's the spacer between the manifold and the TB.. If that's so, that's all I need to do, remove the TB and leave the spacer. But it looks like I would need a gasket if I do it that way not an o ring. You know, they have a wire harness running through that gap. If that wasn't there it would be a lot easier to do it with the torx wrench like you mentioned above. That harness is in there pretty tight and it's hard to get it out of the way. I should just cut the wire out and reroute it.. If the TB came off and the gasket was still stuck on good would I need to change it? Anyways, please, bear with me on this.. 😜
