Disconnecting the battery normally will not turn off the CEL. You can go to where you bought the sensor and they can hook up the scan tool and turn it off for you.
Glad you got it taken care of

Well I drove for about 2 hours today- smooth as butter. Apparently the third TPS fixed the problem. I went with a different brand "Duralast" instead of "BWD". It was my last resort before shelling out the $130 the dealership wanted for the MOPAR one. lol
The light till won't go off. I unhooked the battery cables. Going to leave them off for 24 hours. I guess it doesn't really matter as long as the Jeep is running correctly, but it's still annoying seeing that light on my dash all the time.

|Big Sarge||Sounds like its improving! The parts house TPS sensors are notorious for not acting right in our jeeps. I personally have not had an issue but many many on here have. Have the parts store read and erase your codes to get the light off. Unhooking the battery won't do it normally. Worst case with the TPS you will need to get one from the dealership.|

|cfarlow89||Oh and btw my fuel pressure is at 48 PSI, so i think I'm good there. Crank position sensor seems clean- haven't replaced yet. The other CPS was replaced when I did the ignition system tune up.|

How long will it take the computer to recognize and re calibrate to the new TPS? I went back to the auto parts store and had them run the CEL code again. Turns out the misfire code for cyl 6 went away.
Apparently I fixed it without realizing it, since another code had caused the CEL to stay on. When they ran it this time it came up as P0123 (Throttle Position/Pedal Sensor). Replaced the TPS again and the problem with it cutting power seems to be getting better. It's only doing it about 1/8 as often as it was and seems to be a softer jump.
I've driven it for about 30 minutes since and cranked the engine 10 times or so, as well as disconnecting the battery a couple times and leaving off for 30 sec or so. Is there a possibility i fixed the problem, and the CEL will go of after the computer fully re calibrates?

|cfarlow89||Any chance it might just be a shorted wire?|

|cfarlow89||Ok. Well i'm going to check the fuel pressure in a little while. If that's not the problem at least I can rule out a pump issue. Will clean/replace crank position sensor. I haven;t checked the O2 sensors yet... didn't seem like that would be it, but maybe.. idk anymore......|

|Jerry Bransford||Attach a fuel pressure gauge to the Schraeder test port valve on the fuel rail & verify your fuel pump is putting out the factory specified 49 psi or at least close to it.|

OK. Is there a way to test the CPS before I replace it/them. Also, can you think of anything else it might be if not the CPS?
Thanks for the help so far...

|cfarlow89||lol OK. I've noticed that the light that comes on when you're supposed to shift up isn't coming on now. Any chance it's something electrical? I just don't understand why it would through a CEL code for a misfire on Cyl 6 if it's not something directly related to that cylinder.|
|06-16-2013 09:11 PM|
|Big Sarge||CPS could also cause the cutting off resulting in jerking. May want to try that before setting it on fire. LOL|

Jeep cutting power... Please Help!
My 99 Wrangler is reading a CEL code for a Cyl 6 misfire. When I drive it either accelerating or just going a steady speed down the highway, the engine will cut power for a split second and the Jeep will "jump" or "pull back." The CEL was on for about a month before I started having the problem.
I just did a tune up about a month ago- new distributor (and all the parts with it), wires, spark plugs, coil. So I'm pretty sure my problem isn't there. I thought it may be a bad injector, so I replaced the injector for cyl 6 and ran Seafoam through the gas tank.
I've replaced the TPS and completely dissembled and cleaned the throttle body, AIC, and ran throttle body cleaner through the throttle body intake. I also cleaned my air intake filter.
I am completely out of ideas. I've tried 2 different TPS's also, because I read that a lot of people had problems with them out of the box. Someone please help me before I light the thing on fire!!
