TPS Throttle Position Sensor

Postby Bersaglieri » Sun Nov 25, 2018 8:51 pm

I am trying to wire a US Shift Quick4 transmission control to run a 1992 12v Cummins ahead of a 4R100. It looks like I have two options to use for the TPS input. The factory Dodge TPS on top of the pump or the Ford one [they call it the acceleration pedal position sensor] located at the fuel pedal.

How good or bad are the TPS units on the pump? What voltage range do they have? Reliable output?

The one on the pump would be ideal since, being connected directly, it should read in line with the fueling. However, if I use the Ford one I am going to have to phase the pedal and the pump linkage together so that pedal input matches fuel output.

Thanks.

5 Volt is the input voltage. Output is 0 to about 4 volts.

Some people whine about the Dodge units being trash. I replaced one on my truck in the 12 years it had a auto in it.

Thanks for that info Phillip, I'm back on this project and trying to decide which to wire in.

I will say the TPS will now be used for an Allison 1000 and not a 4R100, slight change of plans.

I am not sure if the Allison needs a TPS input. I was under the impression it didn't when run as a stand alone.

I thinks that trans is better option than the ford.
