Ford P0124 OBD-II Trouble Code Definition:

P0124 Throttle Position Sensor/Accelerator Position Pedal Circuit Intermittent

P0124 Ford OBD-II Trouble CodeDescription:

OBD Trouble Code P0124
Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch “A” Circuit Intermittent
What does the code mean? OBD-ii Code P0124 definition:
The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) responds to the accelerator pedal movement. This sensor is a kind of potentiometer which transforms the throttle position into output voltage, and emits the voltage signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM). In addition, the sensor detects the opening and closing speed of the throttle valve and feeds the voltage signal to the ECM. Idle position of the throttle valve is determined by the ECM receiving the signal from the throttle position sensor. This sensor controls engine operation such as fuel cut. On the other hand, the Wide open and closed throttle position switch, which is built into the throttle position sensor unit, is not used for engine control.

– Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
Causes Causes of the OBD-II code P0124
– Throttle position sensor harness is open or shorted – Throttle position sensor circuit poor electrical connection – Faulty throttle position sensor. The Error code is generally activated on detection of the following conditions: An intermittent voltage from the TP sensor is sent to ECM.
