Wyominer Welcome to the forum! Also welcome to the world of Jeeps! Can't help ya with your problem, but the resetting the computer can't hurt.

Indy Try resetting your computer. Leave the battery disconnected overnight to completely erase the memory. See if that helps.

James249G I would start by checking your Idle Air Controller. If its an 03, there's a chance it could just use a good cleaning. That's the CHEAPEST possible answer. As for your computer, sometimes after replacing your TPS or IAC it takes a while for your ECU to "re-learn" and re-set itself. If that's not happening, it MAY be the problem.
Good luck, bro.

throttle issue??????

hey guys,
Im a new member so be gentle. This is an awesome site, so I figured who better to ask then the jeep lovers. First off I will tell you what I have and what I've recently done to it. I have an 03 jeep wrangler se 4 cylinder 2.4L 5 speed manuel with 54,xxx miles. I have recently replaced the spark plugs and wires, changed the oil and oil filter, changed the air filter, and last replaced the throttle control sensor. Now for the issue that I hope you guys can help out with. It started out as just annoying check engine light. I ran the code and it said throttle position sensor was having issues. So after ignoring it for a few weeks, I finally went to the dealer and bought the oem tps. As soon as I installed it, everthing went to junk. Every stop sign I stop at the engine dies. When im accelerating, I'm being bucked around and jerked about. I then tried to put the old one back on, but it continued to do the voilent jerks. So I took it to a buddy who is a mechanic and he kept it for a few days. He ran a few test, replaced the idle sensor, and said it was fixed. He said that it wouldn't buck, but the check engine light would still be on. Well the first road I got on after I left the shop, it starting bucking again. So I took it back. He put the "Big computer up to it". long story short he thinks its a bad computer. When he hooked the computer up, it say its idling at 48%, but when he revs it it only changes by 1%. So I took it to a second mechanic, and he kept it for a few days. I thinks its a bad throttle body. Sorry guys for the 100 page book, but I figure the more information the better. What do you guys think, bad computer? bad throttle body? or something else?
thanks a ton!!!!!
