Throttle valve operation occurs by an electric motor ( Throttle Position (TP) Actuator V60 ) in the Throttle Valve Control Module J338 . It is operated by the Motronic Engine Control Module (ECM) J220 and the Throttle Position (TP) Sensor G69 / Throttle Position (TP) Sensor G88 . The Throttle Valve Control Module J338 is made up of the following components: Throttle Position (TP) Actuator V60 Throttle Position (TP) Sensor G69 Throttle Position (TP) Sensor G88 The Throttle Valve Control Module J338 cannot be serviced separately and must be serviced as a unit. Function test Connect the scan tool. Switch ignition on. Using the scan tool, check the throttle valve position (absolute) at idle stop: Diagnostic text Throttle valve position (absolute) Idle stop Specified value 3.0 to 25.0%

Slowly depress the accelerator pedal to the Wide Open Throttle (WOT) stop while observing the percentage display. The percentage display must increase uniformly. Using the scan tool, check the throttle valve position (absolute) at Wide Open Throttle (WOT) stop: Diagnostic text Throttle valve position (absolute) Wide Open Throttle (WOT) stop End diagnosis and switch ignition off. If the specified values are not obtained: Remove the Throttle Valve Control Module J338 far enough so that the electrical connector terminals are reached. Specified value 84.0 to 97.0%
