SFI SYSTEM (w/ EGR System), Diagnostic DTC:P2102, P2103

DTC Code DTC Name
P2102 Throttle Actuator Control Motor Circuit Low
P2103 Throttle Actuator Control Motor Circuit High

DESCRIPTION

The throttle actuator is operated by the ECM and opens and closes the throttle valve using gears.

The opening angle of the throttle valve is detected by the throttle position sensor, which is mounted on the throttle with motor body assembly. The throttle position sensor provides feedback to the ECM. This feedback allows the ECM to appropriately control the throttle actuator and monitor the throttle opening angle as the ECM responds to driver inputs.

Tech Tips

This electronic throttle control system does not use a throttle cable.

DTC No. DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P2102

Both of the following conditions continue for 2 seconds (1 trip detection logic):

(a) Throttle actuator duty ratio is 80% or more

(b) Throttle actuator current is below 0.5 A


  • Open in throttle actuator circuit

  • Throttle actuator

  • ECM

P2103

Either condition is met (1 trip detection logic):


  • Hybrid IC diagnosis signal fails

  • Hybrid IC current limiter port fails


  • Short in throttle actuator circuit

  • Throttle actuator

  • Throttle valve

  • Throttle with motor body assembly

  • ECM

FAIL-SAFE

When either of these DTCs, as well as other DTCs relating to electronic throttle control system malfunctions is stored, the ECM enters fail-safe mode. During fail-safe mode, the ECM cuts the current to the throttle actuator, and the throttle valve is returned to a 6° throttle angle by the return spring. The ECM then adjusts the engine output by controlling the fuel injection (intermittent fuel-cut) and ignition timing, in accordance with the accelerator pedal opening angle, to allow the vehicle to continue running at a minimal speed. If the accelerator pedal is depressed firmly and gently, the vehicle can be driven slowly.

Fail-safe mode continues until a pass condition is detected, and the power switch is then turned off.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Tech Tips


  • Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

  • The throttle actuator current (Throttle Motor Current) and the throttle actuator duty ratio (Throttle Motor Duty (Open) / Throttle Motor Duty (Close)) can be read using the intelligent tester. However, the ECM shuts off the throttle actuator current when the electronic throttle control system malfunctions.

PROCEDURE


  1. INSPECT THROTTLE WITH MOTOR BODY ASSEMBLY (RESISTANCE OF THROTTLE ACTUATOR)

      Component without harness connected

      (Throttle with Motor Body Assembly)

      Disconnect the throttle with motor body assembly connector.

    2. Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      2 (M+) - 1 (M-) 20°C (68°F) 0.3 to 100 Ω

    5. Reconnect the throttle with motor body assembly connector.


    NG
    OK
  3. INSPECT THROTTLE WITH MOTOR BODY ASSEMBLY (VISUALLY CHECK THROTTLE VALVE)


    1. Check for foreign objects between the throttle valve and the housing.

      OK
      No foreign objects between throttle valve and housing.

    NG
    OK
  4. INSPECT THROTTLE WITH MOTOR BODY ASSEMBLY (THROTTLE VALVE)


    1. Check if the throttle valve opens and closes smoothly.

      OK
      Throttle valve opens and closes smoothly.
