If it does, then you'll need to troubleshoot further to find the discrepancy. The throttle position sensor responds to the throttle valve movement.

Hope this points you in the right direction. But many I'm the first! The throttle position sensor responds to the throttle valve movement. It did this all the way to the wedding.

These sensors provide precise input from the driver's foot in terms of how much power is needed—and how urgently—from the engine.
I noticed what felt like a bit of a delay upon acceleration in the pedal. I cleared it and pulled up to the next light. Drove ob 20 to 30 mi into town and back.

So back in 2010 i had what felt like a dead spot in my pedal. If other codes that relates to misfiring condition, lean running or air entering the engine is present, then you must first fix those error codes before P0221. But then kicks up like normal. Turn off and start again and all ok. The ses light is off since I cleared it. .
When you see P0221 engine fault code on your engine code reader this description will help you. Water can leak into the connector from clogged sunroof drains, A-pillar leaks, or windshield or cowling leaks. Arrived home tues afternoon and have been using it everyday since.
