Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) Description and operation

Description

Installed on the accelerator pedal module, the Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) detects the rotation
angle of the accelerator pedal. The APS is one of the most important sensors in engine control system.

Therefore, each of the two sensors comprising the APS has individual power and ground line. The
second sensor monitors the first and its output voltage is half the first one. If the ratio of the sensors 1 and 2 is out of the range (approximately 1/2), the diagnostic system judges that it is abnormal.

Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor (FTPS)

Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor (FTPS)

Description

Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor (FTPS) is a component of the evaporative emission control system and is
installed on the fuel tank, the fuel pump, or the canister. It checks the purge control solenoid valve
operation and detects a leakage of the system.

  3. Remove the fuel pump service cover (A).

Warning

Warning

  • When reinstalling a protective cover for a fuel pump, remove the existing butyl tape and apply a new one.
  • Before assembling the protective cover, ensure that the temperature of the butyl is about 30ºC using a hair dryer or a heat gun.

Warning

When installing the protective cover for the fuel pump, pay attention to the installation direction of the grommet and the protective cover.

  • The arrow (A) should be in the forward direction of the car.
  • Align the bulging part of the vehicle body (B) with the hole of the protective cover.
  • Align the bulging part of the grommet (C) with the bulging part of the protective cover.
  1. Disconnect the fuel tank pressure sensor connector (A).

  1. Remove the fuel tank pressure sensor (B) after releasing the hooks vertically.

Installation

Installation

Warning

  • Install the component with the specified torques.
  • Note that internal damage may occur when the component is dropped. In this case, use it after inspecting.

Warning

  • Insert the sensor in the installation hole and be careful not to damage when installation.
  1. Install in the reverse order of removal.
