Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: P1226 TP Sensor

Description

Electric throttle control actuator consists of throttle control motor, throttle position sensor, etc. The throttle position sensor responds to the throttle valve movement.

The throttle position sensor has two sensors. These sensors are a kind of potentiometers which transform the throttle valve position into output voltage, and emit the voltage signal to the ECM. In addition, these sensors detect the opening and closing speed of the throttle valve and feed the voltage signals to the ECM. The ECM judges the current opening angle of the throttle valve from these signals and the ECM controls the throttle control motor to make the throttle valve opening angle properly in response to driving condition.

DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

1.PRECONDITIONING

If DTC Confirmation Procedure has been previously conducted, always turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds before conducting the next test.

TESTING CONDITION: Before performing the following procedure, confirm that battery voltage is more than 10V at idle.

>> GO TO 2.

2.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

1. Turn ignition switch ON.

2. Turn ignition switch OFF, wait at least 10 seconds.

3. Turn ignition switch ON.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for 32 times.

5. Check 1st trip DTC.

Is 1st trip DTC detected? YES >> Go to EC-375, "Diagnosis Procedure".

NO >> INSPECTION END

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK ELECTRIC THROTTLE CONTROL ACTUATOR VISUALLY

1. Turn ignition switch OFF.

2. Remove the intake air duct.

3. Check if foreign matter is caught between the throttle valve (1) and the housing.

2. Electric throttle control actuator

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 2.

NO >> Remove the foreign matter and clean the electric throttle control actuator inside.

2.REPLACE ELECTRIC THROTTLE CONTROL ACTUATOR

1. Replace electric throttle control actuator.

2. Go to EC-376, "Special Repair Requirement".

>> INSPECTION END

Special Repair Requirement

1.PERFORM THROTTLE VALVE CLOSED POSITION LEARNING

Refer to EC-29, "THROTTLE VALVE CLOSED POSITION LEARNING : Special Repair Requirement" >> GO TO 2.

2.PERFORM IDLE AIR VOLUME LEARNING

Refer to EC-30, "IDLE AIR VOLUME LEARNING : Special Repair Requirement" >> END
