Adventures in TPS replacment!
Last week my TJ started acting up and after troubleshooting I determined the problem was most likely the throttle position sensor. I went to the part store and picked a new TPS up, got home got her all installed and went to plug in the electrical connector, and realized the connecter on the TPS was different from what was on my car. The prongs were flat, while the holes on the connector were round on my jeep. I ended up at three different parts stores trying to find the right part, and all three had the TPS with the flat prongs listed for a 1997. After the parts store employee did some searching on his computer he was able to find the right one listed on a 1995 wrangler, which was installed with no issues once I got home, and seemingly solved my issues. Has anyone here run into similar issues with parts?
Very common with Chryslers on crossover years. I've encountered the same thing on a TPS with a 97 using a 95 YJ sensors even though the Chrysler build sheet showed a different part number. Always check the connectors on new sensors vs your existing before you go through the trouble of removing them from the Jeep.

I cried it would be I get the Jeep that likes stealership only parts HAHAHAHA
