So the TPS is shot on my 2001 2.o Zetech and I can not get a replacement as FORD has changed the design. The replacment throttlebody/TPS is going to be over 220 with the adapter for the diferent style plug on the TPS.
I am wondering if I could get a throttle body and TPS from the boneyard out of a 2oo3 Zetech motor with the atx

So does anyone know if a 03 swap would work?
Anyone have an old style TPS for sale?

Thanks for any help

go to advance 20 bucks and mine is still working great
Auto zone said it is not available any longer. Ford said the same thing and I have looked on line with no luck.
No one seems to carry the old style TPS that will fit the old/original style TB with the auto trans... I wish it was as easy as going to advance :)

Thanks for the reply though I appreecisate it.

Thanks for the input...What part number are you looking at?
I have found them for the manual trans on line but nowhere for the automatic.
Advance even has a remanf t body listed online for the automatic with the new style tps....its only 60 bucks but NOT available yet. I even had the parts guy call Cardone to make sure and he was told they do not know when it will be available.
I THINK that the 2002-2003 t body part number 2m5u9e926-aa or bb will work but not 100% sure yet.
If I cant get a 03 model to work I will just get the new part #2m5z 9e926 bb at a discount cost of $175 bucks (LIst is 315) bucks. They have a wire adapter to connect the new style TPS plug for $33 bucks (Part # for wire pigtail is 1u2z 14s411 afb) but I will just go cut off the plug and wires from a junked car that has the same TPS plug for 5 bucks

I dont see why the 03 t body wont bolt right up though...

ok I called and Orielly said the DY 871 WILL WORK with an auto trans however every other place has told me that part number is for manual only....jeez what a pita this is... Its easier getting parts for my race car than a TPS for my Foki

rock auto has it here but at the bottom is states manual trans...the part number on the current TPS on my car is x52a 9b989 ab

ok a couple people said that the TPS for the manual would work for the automatic I went and grabed a duralast tps274 from autozone as it is the one listed for the manual transmission.
Car started and idled great but the shifting was all messed up as it would slip and hunt for a gear when crusing. So out it went.

The part that I need is a X52A 9B989 AB. If you have one of those I would be all over it Zetechatch!

alsoFor what its worth the model number on the throttle body is xs4u-je

@ If anyone needs a tps for there manual trans zetech let me know :)

So I contact motorcraft via live chat and they tell me from my vin I need the dy969 tps. It looks like I will be forced to buy a used tps or get a new t body this really sucks.

Jermaine: You will need to select the part#DY-969.

Jermaine: Are there any other FordParts.com part catalog questions I can assist you with today?

you: that is not the style that is on the car.

you: that is the newer style..the one I have now is x52a 9b989 ab

Jermaine: Going off your VIN this is the correct part number for your vehicle.

you: wiuich is the dy871 style but I need to know if it will work with the auto trans

you: what is the dy871 listed for?

Jermaine: DY-871 is for a manual transmission.

you: ok then there is no tps in the olde style for an automatic

Jermaine: DY-969 is for a automatic.

you: yes but that is the new style...I would need to buy a whole new throttle body in order for it to work

you: look at the pictures of the dy871 and the dy969 they are different style tps

Jermaine: Please hold.

you: ok

Jermaine: There is no difference in the illustration. Going of the VIN you have provided me I am showing that DY-969 is the correct part number for VIN# 1FAFP363X1W183792.

you: well I dont mean to ba a jerk but that is wrong..Ford changed the desighn and has a kit for the throttle body and new style tps Part # 2m5z 9e926 bb

Jermaine: PLease hold.

you: so basically I have to buy a whole new t body and tps and wire pigtail 1u2z 14s411 afb in order to get my car to run correct

you: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=383031

you: that is a picture of the dy969

you: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=383002

you: That is the 971 in the style I have now

you: 871 oops

Jermaine: Are you looking on Fordparts.com for the part?

you: yes I have looked everywhere no one has a tps in the old style for a auto

you: rock auto had good pictures thats why I sent the link to you

you: you can see they are 2 different desighns

you: there is no way the dy969 will fit on my t body wich has part number xs4u je

Jermaine: I apologize for the inconvenience; please contact your preferred ford dealer for further assistance for your part inquiry. I'm not showing any updated parts information for this vehicle.

Jermaine: Are there any other FordParts.com part catalog questions I can assist you with today?

you: i will look for a used part as I will not pay over 300 bucks for a new t body....I appreciate your time

Hi, I'm in the exact same boat as you right now -- trying to avoid purchasing an entire TB and wiring harness just to fix the TPS. Were you ever able to find a used XS2A 9B989 AB TPS, or equivalent?

I just went through the same thing with my 2001 zetec ATX. I tried the tps from autozone for the manual zetec. Started fine but caused drivability issies and sparatic engine codes. I finally broke down and bought the ford TB, TPS, Harness and even an IAC. Now it runs better than ever. Good luck.

Does anyone out there have another solution for a tps/T.B for an automatic Ztec. I bought an 01 that someone swapped out the spi for a 2.0 Ztec. Everything came out of a 01 ZX3.After taking it to 4 shops, including Ford, no one could figure out my shift problems of a late and hard shift into 2nd, a slip and in neverland. I finally found out that someone put a Throttle body/tps from a manual tranny car. I had to cut the mounting tabs off the tps in order to bring the voltage from .039 to a half a volt. It almost shifts properly now except in and out of O.D. sometimes. Bought used correct T.B. but had to return because of bad tps. Ford wants $350 for a new one. Is there any after market ones that would bolt right on? I looked at a used 03 T.B but the tps and throttle hookup was all different. Any ideas. I stuck about $700 into this car already. Thanks. Focusmart.

the throttle bodies from 2000-2002.5 are interchangeable and 2002.5-2004 are interchangeable. the design of the throttle body was changed halfway through the 2002 production year. you could snag an aftermarket 65mm throttle body from THIS website for around $100 that will fit your car and has automatic throttle linkage hook up.

I purcased a 2000 Focus SE 4 door sedan with the 2.0 Zetec DOHC engine in it. just yesterday the MIL cam on and my scanner gave me the code P1120. So I replaced the TPS with one from Oriely's, and it shifted hard between 1st and 2nd an erattic rpm at cruise, as was mentioned earlier in the post.

Heres what I found from reaserching it and a little help from my buddies over at Ramchargercentral.com (Special thanks to Dodgeboys for this info)

Vehicle Application:

2000 Focus 2.0

Customer Concern:

Check engine light and code P1120. The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) was replaced.


Tests/Procedures:

1. At the TPS with Key On Engine Off (KOEO), use a voltmeter to check voltage on all 3 wires with sensor connected. The Yellow should read 5 volts, the White/Violet should read about 0.4 volts and the Brown a good ground. If any are out of range, check for a faulty connection at C190, a Black 16 cavity connector on a bracket, rear of the right strut tower. If in doubt, use jumpers to bypass the connector on these 3 wires and recheck.

2. If voltages OK, check the TPS signal voltage at the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) pin 89 (White) for the same as recorded at the sensor. If different, trace harness to locate and repair concern.

3. If the voltage is the same, replace the throttle body per Ford Special Service Message (SSM) 16157.

Tech Tips:

PLEASE NOTE: This applies on the ZETEC 2.0L engine ONLY (8th digit of Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) = 3). The following is the text of a Special Service Message (SSM) from Ford: 16157 2000-2002 FOCUS, AUTO 2.0L ZETEC - MIL / DTC P1122 SOME 2000-2002 FOCUS EQUIPPED WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE AND 2.0L ZETEC ENGINE MAY EXHIBIT A MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LAMP (MIL) ILLUMINATED WITH DTC P1122, THROTTLE POSITION (TP) CIRCUIT LOW INPUT. INTERNAL COMPONENTS OF THE TPS HAVE BEEN IMPROVED TO PREVENT THIS CONDITION. TO SERVICE, REPLACE THE ENTIRE THROTTLE BODY WITH PART #2M5Z-9E926-AA. FOR VEHICLES BUILT BEFORE JANUARY 3, 2002, TP CONNECTOR PIGTAIL HARNESS, PART # 1U2Z-14S411-AFA, MUST BE INSTALLED. EFFECTIVE DATE: 08/20/2002


So I am curious if anyone came up with a cheaper alternative to this as i was just quaoted $315 for the Throttle Body and $50 for the pigtail.[?|][?|][?|]

I put the new throttle body part # into google and found a place in L.A. that sells them for $162.05. I'm going to try one of these. I was waiting until after Christmas to do this, now just waiting until payday. The place is called Find it Parts. They look like it's an over the road, big trucks parts place, but they carry that part #. Good luck for the both of us.

I hate to resurrect a 2+ year old thread. However, I have a question that I wish someone could please answer that is directly related to the subject of this thread. I don't mean to jack a thread either, but considering it so old I don't see the harm. Plus, I posted my own thread about this some time ago and didn't not receive any solid responses.

I have 2000 Focus SE 2.0 L Zetec w/auto trans, which has the OE style throttle body and TPS. If I went with a 65 mm aftermarket throttle body, such as the FC one, what TPS do I need to mate with it? And yes, I understand I will also need the pigtail connector PN# 1U2Z-14S411-AFB. However, is the TPS sensor "DY-969," the one Jermain speaks of in the chat session, the correct one. Is the DY-969 the TPS that is mated with the newer style throttle bodies PN# 2M5Z-9E926-BB or is it a different TPS? From a different thread I gathered that a 2003 Zetec throttle body can be swapped into a 2000 Zetec, but not sure if this is correct. If it is correct then the TPS for that is a DY-970, so which if either is the right one?

Any help would be appreciated, because my junkyard TPS has taken a dive and would like to get going on a parts order. If have to drop money on new throttle body I would much rather go with an aftermarket one than the Ford part since it is about the same cost. I also hear the throttle is a tad more responsive on the 65 mm throttle bodies. Thanks in advance.
