    Throttle sticking after battery disconnected

    I had the battery disconnected for a weekend, doing stereo work. When I put everything back together, the throttle seems to stick now. driving down the highway, let off the gas, and it stays right there, no slowing down. Even when I slow with the brakes, the throttle seems to stay pretty high.

    I've tried the reset process, disconnected the TPS to reset, but still no change. Think it's the TB? I can't feel it sticking, but I don't know what to try next....

    Take off your intake tube at the TB-start it up and look see if the butterfly flap is closing all the way. Also, with the 04, Make sure that your throttle cable is in the semi-round runner correctly. Good luck and let us know.

    I never would have thought of that one. Sometimes (if we're lucky) it's the simple things.

    This was happening before the heads, Sarge. Been bugging me for a couple of weeks. Might be time to send the MTI TB to Shaner and have him do it up.

    Nah, they use Accufab.

    Shaner says he can port and polish the MTI TB from a S2 to a S3, make it flow even better. Not a bad deal for $100. I've heard nothing but awesome feedback about his work too.

    I just need to know if it is the TB, before I go on a wild goose hunt. I need a spare TB to test....

    Looks like it is the TB sticking open. The boys at HPE suggested installing a return spring to help the blade close. They said they have seen other billett TB's stick because of the wimpy spring they have.

    Thay said the only one they haven't seen stick is the Nick Williams

    Personally I think the Nick Williams is the best out there right now! I know it will come in handy for me.
