Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: P2119 electric throttle control actuator

Description

Electric throttle control actuator consists of throttle control motor, throttle position sensor, etc.

The throttle control motor is operated by the ECM and it opens and closes the throttle valve.

The throttle position sensor detects the throttle valve position, and the opening and closing speed of the throttle valve and feeds 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.

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?


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-426, "Special Repair Requirement".

>> INSPECTION END
