Hello, My 2003 Mazda 6 is having a throttle body issue. She told me that while she was driving down the interstate it lost power slowing the car down pretty fast. Thanks, Dan The throttle plate incorperates: Throttle control Cruise control Idle Speed The code you are getting is for the fact that one of the two sensors in the throttle body has gone out of range on more than one occasion. That means over a month with no car. After reading online blogs, I suppose it comes as no suprise. My wife's 2003 Mazda6 has 120k miles on it. I have found several used 2005-2007 Mazda 6 throttle bodies with low miles and fair prices, and I think this is the route I would like to take.

Although a recall has not been issued, there has been a service advisory bulletin for this problem. These sensors are a kind of potentiometers which transform the throttle valve position into output voltage, and emit the voltage signal to the Engine Control Module. I don;t recommend used parts in this case Cosmo Mazda Tech I have a 2003 Mazda 6 with just over 80,000 miles on it and the throttle sensor is apparently bad. The throttle position sensor has the two sensors. Horrible, horrible customer service on Mazda's part.
I have to go to work and make a living. It has a cel on so I checked that and it read a bad throttle position sensor. Thank you for using Fixya If you need further help, reach me via phone at Dec 12, 2010. This can be a loose connection at the sensor or a the sensor needs cleaning.
