Yea, you know what's inside of the TPS ? It's like a ribbon type deal, like you see in computers. Wire leads pressed within the ribbon. What can happen and I'm almost 100% sure it did, it was spun further one way than it was accustom to and broke.
How they go out under normal conditions:
The ribbon/wires inside get old and brittle / -snap. As soon as this happens, you get a CEL, Right away! Also as soon as this happens, the trans shifts erratically because it has no direction. Your trans tables go ~ MAF_TPS_ Shift point. The bad in that, the trans doesn't default to a safe mode, so when this happens on the expressway, it may find first at 70 lol.
Anyway man, unless you jammed it in there, I think everything is hooked up correctly, because the TPS fits only one way and spins (one way) just a little to line up the bolts. Don't worry about adjusting - it IS NOT adjustable, you can make them adjustable, but get it working first.
Post back what you find, thanks.
