CODE 43 NISSAN TERRANO R50

Postby Stubbies » Wed Apr 19, 2017 6:48 am

Morning, I'm getting a code 43 which is throttle position sensor. Its going into limp mode but coming right after a series of pumping the throttle while off. I had the mechanic wiggle all the wiring loom to the TPS and the computer but it wouldn't do it.
We noticed the crank angle sensor plug to on the top of the engine-would the rattling interfere with the sensor plug?
its so intermittent and clears its self eventually but its becoming a real pain.

FYI, a year ago it had a recon pump and new crank sensor and ran fine for about a year, now its throwing out the 43 code again.

cheers
Quentin.

If its the t.p.s it's the t.p.s, fly by wire throttle would put that atop the accelerator pedal assembly under the dash.
i'd find it incredulous that the crank angle sensor would fail two years in a row as it is simply a magnetic pulse reader similar to that of a A.B.S system and they are subject to far greater range of temperatures' viabrations, mud , dirt grease etc on the hub then that of the engine.

the catch 22 is that it is only the input, and if that comes back ok, then its the reciever or the magnetic lift valve on the pump which is told what to do by the T.P.S...once again re other post, the comms line between the t.p.s- ecu- injector pump.

the eti systems have more then one way of reading the position of the crank shaft,

It can pick that up from the No1 injector lift sensor, and also from the timing advance on the injector pump itself,

did your mechanic test the out put of the t.p.s through out the full travel of the pedal with a multi meter? .04V to 5v?

Morning, Yes the Mechanic did check the range on the pedal and said it was ok.

Done it again yesterday , I turned it off pumped pedal a few times and re-started and it was fine.

Replace the TPS. It might have been working fine when tested it just like it works fine most of the time when you drive it.

I put a second hand one in when all the issues started, Since then I have done the pump and new crank sensor. Ran fine for just under a year and now its back to its old tricks. I did notice last night the air filter hose was showing a few cracks, How would that affect it?

remove the hose and flex it and inspect it as you flex it. will throw code 12 if it is sucking in air before the AFM though.
