N37-0157

→ Fig.8     Throttle valve potentiometer -G69-

Locations:

On a petrol engine the potentiometer is a component part of the throttle valve control part -J338-. It can be found on the throttle valve housing (engine).

On a Diesel engine the "Throttle valve signal" is generated in the sender for accelerator pedal position -G79-. The sender can be found near the accelerator pedal.

For self-diagnosis:

The throttle valve potentiometer is one of the engine control unit sensors. However the gearbox control unit also requires the throttle valve potentiometer signal.

For this reason the signal from the engine control unit is transmitted to the automatic gearbox control unit.

On vehicles with Data bus the automatic gearbox control unit receives the throttle valve potentiometer signal from the Data bus.

On vehicles without Data bus the signal is made available via a wire from the engine control unit.

The self-diagnosis of the automatic gearbox only checks the signal, not the potentiometer! On vehicles without Data bus the wire for the signal is also checked.

The signal can only be read-out in measured value block.

=> Read measured value block ; Display group number 001 and 003

It is therefore imperative that the self-diagnosis of the engine control unit is also carried out when the self-diagnosis indicates that the throttle valve potentiometer is faulty.

Checking and adjusting or removing and installing throttle valve potentiometer

Petrol engine

=> Repair group 24; depending on engine code

Diesel engine

=> Repair group 20

 
N37-0154

→ Fig.9     Kickdown switch -F8-

Locations:

The kickdown switch (arrow) is integrated into accelerator cable and is located on bulkhead in engine compartment.

On vehicles which do not have an accelerator cable the kick-down signal is generated in the sender for accelerator pedal position -G79-. The sender can be found close to the accelerator pedal.

For self-diagnosis:

On these vehicles the kick-down switch signal is transmitted from the engine control unit to the automatic gearbox control unit.

On vehicles with Data bus the automatic gearbox control unit receives the kick-down signal from the Data bus.

On vehicles without Data bus the signal is received via a wire from the engine control unit.

Removing and installing kickdown switch

Petrol engine

  • ‒ On a petrol engine the accelerator cable must be removed to be able to remove and install the kick-down switch, then readjust cable.
