Ram Truck 1500, 2500 & 3500 (2006-2008)

Throttle Position Sensor


3.7L & 4.7L Engine

The 3-wire Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is mounted on the throttle body and is connected to the throttle blade shaft.

5.7L Engine

The 5.7L V-8 engine does not use a separate TPS on the throttle body. The throttle body on the 5.7L engine is an electrically controlled unit. A mechanical cable is not used to connect the throttle body to the accelerator pedal. The Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor (APPS) along with inputs from other sensors sets the throttle blade to pre-determined positions.
