    P1120 2009 FORD FUSION Description

    The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) responds to the accelerator pedal movement. The TPS is a rotary potentiometer sensor that provides a signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) that is linearly proportional to the throttle plate/shaft position. As the TPS is rotated by the throttle shaft, the following operating conditions are determined by the PCM:

    • Closed throttle (includes idle or deceleration)

    • Part throttle (includes cruise or moderate acceleration)

    • Wide open throttle (includes maximum acceleration or de-choke on crank)

    • Throttle angle rate
