DTC Troubleshooting: P0223 (7)

DTC P0223:  TP Sensor B Circuit High Voltage

1.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

2.Clear the DTC with the HDS.

3.Check the TP SENSOR-B in the DATA LIST with the HDS.

Is there about 4.8 V or higher?


YES - Go to 4.


NO - Intermittent failure, system is OK at this time.
Check for poor connections or loose terminals at the throttle body and the throttle actuator control module.n


4.Check for Temporary DTCs or DTCs with the HDS.

Are DTC P0123 and P0223 simultaneously indicated?


YES - Go to 11.


NO - Go to 5.


5.Measure voltage between throttle body 6P connector terminal No. 3 and body ground.

 

Is there about 5 V?


YES - Go to 16.


NO - Go to 6.


6.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

7.Disconnect the throttle actuator control module 16P connector.

8.Disconnect the throttle body 6P connector.

9.Connect the throttle body 6P connector terminal No. 3 to body ground with a jumper wire.

 

10.Check for continuity between throttle actuator control module 16P connector terminal No. 12 and body ground.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Substitute a known-good throttle actuator control module, then go to 18 and recheck. If DTC P0223 is not indicated, replace the original throttle actuator control module, then go to 18. If DTC P0223 is indicated, then go to 16.


NO - Repair open in the wire between the throttle body and the throttle actuator control module (TPS B line), then go to 18.


11.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

12.Disconnect the throttle body 6P connector.

13.Disconnect the throttle actuator control module 16P connector.

14.Connect the throttle body 6P connector terminal No. 4 to body ground with a jumper wire.

 

15.Check for continuity between throttle actuator control module 16P connector terminal No. 9 and body ground.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Substitute a known-good throttle actuator control module, then go to 18 and recheck. If DTC P0223 is not indicated, replace the original throttle actuator control module, then go to 18. If DTC P0223 is indicated, then go to 16.


NO - Repair open in the wire between the throttle body and the throttle actuator control module (SG line), then go to 18.

16.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

17.Replace the throttle body.

18.Reconnect all connectors.

19.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

20.Reset the ECM/PCM with the HDS.

21.Do the ECM/PCM idle learn procedure.

22.Check for Temporary DTCs or DTCs with the HDS.

Are any Temporary DTCs or DTCs indicated?


YES - If DTC P0223 is indicated, check for poor connections or loose terminals at the throttle body and the throttle actuator control module, then go to 1. If any other Temporary DTCs or DTCs are indicated, go to the indicated DTC's troubleshooting.


NO - Troubleshooting is complete.n
