|P1125 1998 FORD F150 code tech notes

The TP sensor circuit is monitored by the PCM for sudden TP rotation angle (or voltage) input change through the comprehensive component monitor (CCM). If during the last 80 warm-up cycles in key ON engine running the PCM detects a TP rotation angle (or voltage) changes beyond the minimum or maximum calibrated limit, a continuous diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is stored.

|What is the cost to diagnose the P1125 1998 FORD F150 code

Labor: 1.0

The cost to diagnose the P1125 1998 FORD F150 code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair's diagnosis time and labor rates vary by location, vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repair shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

|When is the P1125 1998 FORD F150 code detected?

Engine Control Module (ECM) detected the Thottle Position (TP) sensor voltage extended above or below calibrated limits

|What are P1125 1998 FORD F150 code possible symptoms?

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

|What is P1125 1998 FORD F150 code meaning?

The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) responds to the accelerator pedal movement. The TPS is a rotary potentiometer sensor that provides a signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) that is linearly proportional to the throttle plate/shaft position. As the TPS is rotated by the throttle shaft, the following operating conditions are determined by the PCM:
• Closed throttle (includes idle or deceleration)
• Part throttle (includes cruise or moderate acceleration)
• Wide open throttle (includes maximum acceleration or de-choke on crank)
• Throttle angle rate
