    Default DC5 TPS Issue

    Hi everyone,

    I've had a 2004 Integra DC5 (pic in profile) for about 6 years. Itís my pride and joy!

    I apologise if this question has been asked before but Iím looking for an up to date answer.

    The mechanic I go to is great, he diagnoses the problem, I find the part which he then fits.

    At the moment I have a throttle position sensor issue. Heís managed to stop it revving on its own between 1000 & 2500 rpm to permanently idling over 2000 rpm.

    I can manage the high idle with the clutch but thatís not ideal and will wear it out.

    I bought a new throttle position sensor, my guy fitted it but says it turns in the wrong direction. The one I bought turns clockwise and I need one the turns anti-clockwise.

    Has anyone come across this before? Iím at a total loss as to what to look for coz they all look the same.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I fitted an acuity hall effect sensor from tegiwa recently, works a treat and should last long term. As far as I can tell all fitment is the same for k20 set ups. So could he an incorrect part if its from a factors.

    I had the K Tuned Hall Effect on my DC5 and it was fantastic. Easy to fit, well made and super simple to setup.

    Ditto K Tuned Hall effect on my EP3 for 5 years, it is good...

    The Hall effect is the production of a voltage difference across an electrical conductor, transverse to an electric current in the conductor and to an applied magnetic field perpendicular to the current. It was discovered by Edwin Hall in 1879.

    So no moving parts to wear out...

    Just to add, I had read bad things about k tuned (as a brand overall) TPS being unreliable. Acuity had a lot more reviews and all positive, so that is why I went for that one.

    Price wise there wasn't much in it. Just thought I'd mention it.

    K Tuned are trash, I wouldnít touch them with a very long pole. Each to their own though.
