Unfortunatly all I have is a multimeter I guess I can make some jumper wires and see what I can find out by checking voltages that way.. X
Check your installation and make sure the TPS was inatalled right. My initial feeling is the TPS was not adjusted. Some TPS installations require adjustment after installing.
Use a digital meter. Key on, engine off, W/throttle plate closed, you are looking for a voltage output of about 0.55 V, wide open throttle, you are looking @ 4.5 to 5 V. Look for smooth voltage changes when you move the throttle from closed to WOT If you do not get 0.55V with throttle closed, slightly loosen the screws and rotate the TPS until you get the specified voltage with throttle plate closed.
Once we deal with this issue, we'll tackle code 43
