Default NEED TO FIND Throttle Position Sensor Wire for WOT Switch

I need to know where and what color wire the voltage output wire is. Im rewiring my N2O system today and would like to go to the track thursday. Im going from a push button to WOT activation because its less of a pain. Any help???

I dont know which wire but I'm curious on how you plan to do this.

Because most relays I know of have leeway in the voltage needed to trip it. So it might trip early when you are not a WOT.

my nitrous management unit is programable. you leave the system unarmed with the ignition on (but not running) and while my buddy holds it at WOT i release the program button so it knows your cars WOT voltage. I have it hooked up to a button from a 12V lead and programed it when the button was held down.

I see.

Never seen the electronic one yet.

I'm sure someone here might have the wiring.

I know we have an electronic throttle, so most likely (I am not at my truck or near my service manual) there is no TPS. I looked it up on partsamerica(Advance Auto Parts) and didn't find one made for our trucks. It might be different for each engine, but there has to be something going to the TB to detect voltage. Just look around the engine bay.

i know there is not seperate TPS from the actual throttle. I figured it was intergrated with the throttle itself. i just need to know which wire from the throttle body it is. there is 6-8 wires going to the throttle body.

Uh we know we have a electronic TB.

He wants to know exactly what wires feed the voltage needed so he can tap into them.

I doubt he wants to be cutting and guessing.

*edit

**** he beat me to it.

Your Throttle position sensor signal 1 is going to be a green wire in pin A of your Throttle body.
Should do what you need.

you might have to do a detent switch on the pedal assy. prolly a safer option so you dont mess up the computer and cause a no fuel situation.
