Default P2074 & P0122 Codes

On my Gf's PT Cruiser she is getting codes for P2074, Map Sensor Throttle Position Correlation at load, and code P0122 TPS/Pedal position sensor A circuit low Input. It started with the engine light coming on and off intermittent, then we noticed that a minute or two after the car starts up the cruise control will not cut on. (If you cut it on with in a couple minute os start up it works fine through the duration of the trip). Also, sometimes when you let all the way off the gas the car jerks a bit. It jerks right before your all the way off maybe in that last 5% or so. I was wondering what could be causing these two codes and these issue's?

Just a guess, but I'd say your TPS (Throttle Position sensor) could be the cause of your problem. It's on the side of the throttle body, pretty easy to take off and replace. If you do decide to buy one and replace it, ONLY buy a Chrysler part, not one from an aftermarket parts store. Auto stores sell junk for electrical parts and although you'll pay more at a dealer, the part are good.

Thanks that was my first thought with both of the codes being thrown. Do you know of theres anyway to check to see if its bad without buying a new one first. (hooking a multimeter up to check output or something along the lines of that?)

I replaced the TPS and the check engine light went off ad ran fine for about week. including a long trip of a couple hundred miles. then tonight the light came back on and started jerking again. I was wondering if there could be something causing the sensor to go bad or another cause of this problem.

When you replaced the TPS, did you replace it with a part from Chrysler or an auto store? We've heard time and time again that electrical parts from aftermarket auto stores either don't work at all or have a high failure rate.
