I tried it. No reading from it with the key on. Ugh.. Lol. I see three wires on the side. Black in front. Red. And then purple. I know it's the right thing. Got myself a CEL now cause dad pulled it.

not sure if I mentioned this in the post, but, was your truck at operating temp?
And, did you get the tester in there far enough? Its kinda a flakey connection, but, thats how the service manual said to do it. You kinda have to push the testers in pretty hard and hold them there.

Also, since he took it off, it will definitley need adjusting.

And, just unplug the battery, it should clear the code once everything is hooked up again. Mine did the same thing since I unplugged it.

Also, thanks for the rep guys Just trying to help out some fellow 5.9 guys.
And, this should be the same for a 5.2L. Not sure if I mentioned that either. But, they're practically the same engine/fuel injection system.

All he unplugged was in fact the plug, you believe it will need adjusting then?

I'll try again after school. I have an analog voltmeter... lol it's hard to read for .5 to 1.5 volts.

oh...no...nevermind. I thought you said he completley removed it from the TB.

But, I used a digital one, may be easier with an analog, though.

and after school? Ouch, we're out already. Not that I'm bragging or anything

i could only adjust mine to .8 volts, do u think if i got a new tps it would make any difference, like being able to adjust it to a full volt at closed throttle? id imagine because its a high movement part that it would wear the contact points between the seat and the sensor, i am just curious if i put a totally new one in would i get a bit more snap out of ye ol'360.

you have an 03 with a 360? Wow, thats rare. Might be worth something someday...lol

But, you want it as close to 1 volt at closed throtte as possible. Mine was only at .67 since it has 143000 miles on it...haha. So, you are closer than me.
