Mopar TPS

Where can I get a Mopar throttle positioning sensor for a 2001 TJ 4.0? Does anyone know the part #? Thanks.

The MOPAR part number is Part # 04874371AC and will set you back over $100! Go to Advance Auto or Auto Zone and grab one for around $30-40!

I put an auto zone in mine and it didn't work for some reason. Put an OEM one in and it worked great. I just didn't feel like putting on a bunch more to see they didn't work either. Just my 2 cents.

Why exactly do you need one? 90% of TPS issues can be solved with a quick once over and some throttle body or carb cleaner and a toothbrush. Just take yours out and clean it real well. I'm assuming you have one that is not functioning and you're not rebuilding a throttle body.

That are you cleaning? The electrical contact portion is sealed

I've been through a few TPS recently - my 97 didn't like any of the aftermarket TPS. They worked initially but needed to be replaced again soon after. I tried 'Crown' and another make.
Ended up replacing with a genuine Mopar TPS and solved all my problems. Also, had to reset the computer after installing.

Most aftermarket electrical parts are cheap and from China. I will only use OEM electrical parts. Most dealers will work with you on price if you become a regular customer.

$74 for the OE Mopar TPS from
Mopar parts | Dodge parts | Chryler parts | Jeep parts | WeRMopar.com. For sensors & other critical parts, I'll only go with first quality Mopar parts.

I wouldn't touch one of those cheap sensors sold by stores like Autozone or Advance Auto. I'd buy something like floormats or Valvoline motor oil from Autozone but nothing critical like a sensor, water pump, alternator, starter, etc.
