I am the owner of a 2000 Jaguar S-Type 4.0 and had a Fail Safe Mode Warning and check engine light that came on, had O'Reilly's scan it and the code showed P1576, Accelerator Pedal Sensor issue. Before changing the pedal sensor you may want to try this first, if you have this issue. This is a cheaper and easier way to go before changing out the pedal sensor although the sensor is not expensive unless you decide to have a mechanic change it for you. After some research, we decided to take a can of electronic cleaner (bought $3 can of CRC, Electronic Cleaner) and cleaned out the connections of the throttle positioning sensor (located under the hood) and the accelerator pedal sensor (located at the accelerator pedal inside the car). Before starting the car I pumped the pedal a couple of times. Don't know if that was necessary but I did that anyway. After doing this the Fail Safe Mode warning never came back on, then I had the check engine light reset. So far, this seems to have done the trick. If I run into another problem with this I will then consider changing the pedal sensor then and update this status.

Change the pedal sensor...thrttle is fine and will function properly as soon as its changed..make sure once you change it you turn the key to position two for 5 seconds then turn it back to position one ,then wait ten more seconds and turn the key to postion two for 5 seconds again to allow the ecu to calibrate.And make sure you unplug the neg terminal to do the install...once reconnected follow the above procedure...the crank the car.

As I can solve the problem with this code p1589 en un jaguar s type 2001

Could be a wire, a bad connector, bad voltage supply, or a bad data capture. Could need a calibration done or a new engine computer. If you have changed all the easy parts, take it to an authorized mechanic or learn to live with a check engine light. 25315267-wng3opgl1pug32fsc4t4fc4i-3-0.jpg

Throttle pedal position sensor "A" circuit low input

Sounds like the Throttle Plate is sticking

You were fooled into changing the TPS because of the code

Not the way you diagnose vehicle issues

You find out why a sensor--- good or bad set the code

Get some CRC Throttle Body Cleaner & follow the instructions

Don't need much sprayed around the throttle plate

Then have someone step on gas pedal to confirm success

May need the key on

Your low input is the throttle not returning to home position

Almost like the sensor was telling you what was wrong

Fun stuff isn't it & not easy to understand

2001 Jaguar fault code P1589 Throtle Body angel. Is there a way I can fix without a costley visit to the JAG shop

the throttle body angle is the throttle butterfly opening angle, the signal is sent to the ecm from a potentiometer on the throttle body and is compared to the throttle pedal sensor if both signals are not in unison then you get that fault code you dont say what model you have! if its got a cable operated throttle pedal the pedal sensor is also on the throttle body. so you should clean the butterfly and housing using a solvent and check the wiring and connectors but at that year 99 to 2001 they had problems with throttle bodies lots had to be replaced. so recon throttle body may be best option

2000 s-type obd 2 code p1576

That code represents a malfunction in the idle control or with sensing info to adjust vehicle's speed. This is usually caused by a faulty potentiometer which is located at your gas pedal. Instead of having a throttle cable going from the pedal to engine your vehicle has an electronic system which interprets pressure applied to the pedal as voltage and sends that info to the computer and your vehicle accelerates. If that is bad or you have a fault in the wiring or a loose connection between those two points it will trigger that fault code as well. That part like most jag **** is a dealer only item. I'm a jag owner too if it's not obvious. Hope that gets you headed in the right direction now and good luck

Code P1577 APP sensor output throttle position sensor error

Code 1577 - Pedal position sensor disagreement between sensors

Having read most of the other posts regarding EFM issues it would appear that there are a few main suspects: Brake Switch : Dirty Throttle Body : Throttle Body Connections : Accelerator Pedal Sensor.

Given that the car operates without issue on cruise control and using steering wheel speed adjustment, I am guessing the problem is with the Pedal Sensor.

After tightening the Throttle Position Sensor I had about 4weeks of no warnings. Then on a very rainy day I drove from Dundee to Edinburgh and at the end of the trip the EFM warning re-surfaced. I took the car to get the OBDII codes read and the technician flagged up 1 code: P1577 Pedal Position Sensor Disagreement btwn Sensors.

He cleared the codes and suggested that I might think about cleaning the connections. However since he cleared the codes I have had no more warnings and am reluctant to do anything at present.

I think that all the snow (much of which I dragged into the footwell with my big workies boots) has created a little to much damp in that area and some of the water has evaporated then condensed on the PPS.

Hope helps.

On a 04 camry with 2.4 ltr engine, can I replace just the throttle position sensor or do i have to replace the entire throttle body? The engine code said faulty throttle body.

I think the terms "Throttle Positon Sensor", TPS and "Throttle Body" can be misleading at least in regards to the 04 Camry.

My 04 Camry gave a diagnostic reading of P2121 for my problem "Throttle PEDAL position switch D circuit". However, we changed out the complete Throttle Body/TPS (Toyota Part #22030-0H020) that did NOT fix problem.

The 04 Camry TPS Electronic Module "Throttle Positon Sensor" is factory assembled and riveted to the side of the throttle body. The only way to service/inspect it would be to cut off or drill out the rivets. Not sure you could open the darn thing if you got it off, but that seems to be the only way Toyota sells them!!

Hopefully a new Throttle PEDAL Position Sensor (Toyota Part # 78010-33010 PEDAL ASSY, ACC)
will fix it. This is located under the dash near the accelerator pedal.

So, now I would recommend FIRST to replace the "Throttle PEDAL Positon Sensor" (it is much, much cheaper) and then the Throttle Body/TPS assembly!! Unless of course, you get a diagnostic code as you did for "faulty throttle body!!
