i believe its the red wire that goes to the TPS. Car does not have to be on but ignition does. And I believe it should read as close to 0.5 v as possible. If its over, it bad.

Well yeh I know about the .5 v and stuff I just meant how do I physically test for it. SO i basically have to strip the red wire that goes to the TPS sensor and put a multimeter and read the voltage?

Wow PERFECT PERFECT thank you for the link. Exactly what I was looking for. One last question, the OP of that thread saids to set it at .5 volt (and so did chicows18 earlier post), but i thought I saw somewhere that saids set to .45 volts is best? well does it even make a difference? Just curious. Thanks

I set it at .5, not sure if it makes a difference but seems to be what it is supposed to be at.

in my haynes book it says with the engine off and the throttle valve fully closed it should read 0.5 and with the throttle fully opened it should read 4.5
