zaniah01 Whynotthinkwhynot you have seriously MISREAD my post. I have already purchased the throttle body assembly w/TPS from Advance Auto (As I mentioned in my previous post.), and after they deducted my 30% discount, plus my $25 rewards coupon, shipping, taxes, and core---I only spent $66 total. I was only asking someone on this blog to clear up the confusion on which WIRING HARNESS, A.K.A. TPS CONNECTOR I needed to fit the new TPS. I had received conflicting information from Ford parts, Oreilly's, and Ford dealerships---some were telling me to get part# 1u2z-14s411-AFA and some were telling me to get 1u2z-14s411-AFB. Fortunately for me I have another vehicle to drive while dealing with this situation. My only stress was coming from incompetent, so-called part specializes who don't have a clue about what their talking about. But anywhoo, thanks for your help anyway.

zaniah01 Thank you Hurtinfocus for offering to send me the connector. I truly appreciate you trying to help me. I have gone ahead and purchased the wiring harness from Ford, and hopefully it will be here this week, and I am crossing my fingers that it is the correct one due to all the conflicting info I have received from Ford.

coldbear I couldn't have said it better,Whynotthinkwhynot. In my earlier yrs., I'd go to the junk yards and pull parts for my cars only to be replacing them in days. I guess when the funds are running low one has to make ends meet to keep their junk running. FMC has to worry about warranting their parts and do not want to do the job a second time for their customers.That's why the quality standards for FMC parts have to be much higher. imo.
And no I'm not a service writer for Ford Motor Co.

whynotthinkwhynot Sometimes you spend more time and effort trying to save a little money than it's worth. You can get the TB with the TPS from Rock Auto for about $115 including shipping- maybe $120, but Atlanta should have inexpensive shipping like Memphis. The part cost is $108, and that includes a $36 core so you can spend another $10 to ship it back and get $36. I've never done a core with RockAuto before- they might send you a shipping label, so you won't even have to spend a dime to send the old part back in the box that the new one came in. Total cost to you after the core is returned should be like $80, give or take a few on shipping. For a TB with a TPS- that's cheap.

This is a different part number, so you should check that out. I've been working on cars ever since I could reach the accelerator and brake. I can tell several stories where I tried to save money by rigging things up and failed miserably. I'd end up spending more waiting around paying gas to friends and straining relationships than I would've spent originally to simply get the bolt-on part. Sometimes I ended up getting the bolt-on part after I spend weeks or months burning up money trying to save a few pennies. Heaven only knows how many days you've already taken off your life due to stress.

Part manufacturer: A-1 CarDone
Part # 671003

To look this up, go to, select 2000 Ford Focus, select 2.0L L4 DOHC engine, a list will pop up, scroll down to Fuel/Air, under Fuel/Air select Throttle Body. Don't even look under TPS, all that is there is for manual transmissions.

coldbear No that's a real Focus Head! Nice touch huntinfocus.

hurtinfocus take a picture of the TPS's connection, I'll try to grab you a pigtail from the junkyard and could mail it to you for the cost of the mailing envelope.

Throttle Position Sensor Connector

Can someone please help me. I am literally sitting her with tears in my eyes as I typed this because I am so frustrated with the confusing info I have been getting from so-called professionals. I have purchased the re-manufactured throttle body from Advance Auto, but of course now I have to buy the wire harness, a.k.a., or pigtails or throttle position connector. 1U2Z-14S411-AFB this part number keeps coming up for a Ford Mustang, and not for my 2000 Ford Focus ZTS, DOHC, Zetec 2.0.L engine, AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION (sorry I am not yelling, but just want to make it clear what type of car I have)----PLEASE! PLEASE! PRETTY PLEASE WITH ICE CREAM AND SPRINKLES ON TOP can you please give me the correct part # for the TPS connector. Please and thank you. I love this website, without you guys I would have NEVER come this far. This has been a nightmare, but also a learning experience for me

zaniah01 Yes my car is an automatic. This blog has solved the mystery for me. I contacted Ford today, and at first he told me I needed to purchase part# 9B989, but after I further questioned him about the "low-down", "money hungry", revision of the throttle body, which requires a different TPS, he told me I needed to get: The throttle body; 2M5Z-9E926-BB and a new wire connector; 1U2Z-14S411-AFB. I started to purchase the more expensive Motorcraft TPS, but from what I'm reading I guess it doesn't really help much. I guess I will have to go to a junk yard Friday because I refuse to replace a part that is still working properly----so frustrated!!!

walker_741 Is your car an automatic? Because if it is then its probably not the right one. At least ford says that they don't make them anymore. They only sell the whole throttle body assembly.

My car is still messed up I have no idea what is wrong with it. It was better but now it's back to the same.

zaniah01 Let me also add I bought a TPS from Advance Auto parts, but it's not responding to it. Should I take a chance, and get one from the junk yard? Getting codes P01122, and P0120.
