LOL nice one

My father works for car dealer services of a company and he's been talking to a Jeep mechanic for me. The mechanic had a few questions about this for me and I'll post what he tells me. In the meantime keep any results coming, I'm surprised from the lack of scanner owners

I have this
CAN OBDII Code Reader with Multilingual Menu

I spent like 20.00 on it. I had a ranger that had issues, and this met the minimum requirement to get the job done....

I've never plugged it into the Jeep. I can try after work today if I remember where I put it.

mrcarcrazy pretty sure my scanner won't show me a value for anything unless a CEL is tripped, then it takes a screen shot of everything. (its a cheapo scanner)

MikalCarbine Thanks for the input. From my testing my sensor has a range of 4-98% when not connected to the throttle body. Once I connect it to the TB it seems the nipple off of the throttle body plate limits the sensor's full range. Can anyone else post their results?

Dixit It may be ok or slightly off. Mine reads 11% with no foot on the throttle. Full throttle I read 75-76%. Ive also wondered why it never gets to 0 or even close to 100 at full. But from ive read around, what Im seeing is normal and there is no "adjustment" on my 2005 for the TPS, the PCM adjusts to this. It figures out where its closed and where its full open.
