Rubicon TPS....weird in line thingy

@toodeep, was hoping you might know what this thing is.


Have a hydrostat Rubicon I'm working on, and it was throwing a code 4...TPS.


So I look and this thing was wired in between the regular wiring plug and the carb TPS.


I pulled it off, and one of the terminals is burnt up in the plug on the wiring harness/non carb end.


I plugged the TPS directly to the pigtail coming off the main wiring harness and the error code went away.


Any ideas on what this add-on is?

There was a recall on them that water could follow the wiring harness down internally and freeze up the throttle during cold weather. Part of that recall was cutting drains into the main harness up under the handlebar area and the other part was adding the sub harness and replacing the tps. I would just throw that in the wire pile and continue with the original harness plug.

So the recall was done on this machine if the sub harness was there?

Thanks for the help Toodeep. Need to adjust the valves, put the tank back on, and take it for a spin.
