Bench test a TPS?

I just changed my TPS on my 2000 civic and wanted to bench test it for the hell of it.

Re: Bench test a TPS?

Cool story, bro.
































Ok. Carry it to the car.
Plug it in to the correct harness connector.
Connect a voltmeter to battery ground, and probably the center wire of the TPS sensor, red/blk.
Turn the key on.
Read the meter.
Work the sensor, watch your meter.
Normal operating range when installed on a throttle body is roughly 0.49v to 4.59v.



FYI, the new TPS should read .49v on the output wire with the throttle closed.
