  • TPS question

    My throttle position sensor is on its way out, and I'm going to order a new one but have a question before I can get it. So, aparently there is one for an auto and one for 5spd. Now for my delima I have an auto ecu and a 5spd transmission. So is it ecu specific or transmission specific? Thanks in advance.

    What motor are we talking here?

    On SR the auto tps is a 6pin plug iirc, vs a 3pin for the MT version.

      Oh my bad. It's the KA24e SOHC.

        I'm guessing that the plug is pinned differently, similar to the SR. I have never messed with auto sohc though, so not 100% sure.

          In that case, get whatever belongs to the engine/harness that's in the car now, not necessarily the ECU. It's been running fine (till now) with the one that's been in it, so just buy the same again.

              the extra plug on the auto's is for the kickdown switch and closed throttle switch.

              your tranny cpu is confused already so it doesn't care whether it gets that info or not, I always remove that plug on my 5sp swapped cars...(every 240sx i've ever bought came auto and left manual) counting 4 now

                  a manual tps has a plug on a pigtail coming off the tps

                  the auto also has a plug built into the face of the tps

                  if you have a FSM it shows and explains what i just laid out

                  if you don't have one you need one so get a download copy at the least

                    The single cams TPS looks identical whether its auto or manual. But apparently they are different numbers.
