Throttle Position (TP) Sensor Intermittent The TP sensor circuit is monitored by the PCM for sudden TP rotation angle (or voltage) input change through the comprehensive component monitor (CCM). If during the last 80 warm-up cycles in key ON engine running the PCM detects a TP rotation angle (or voltage) changes beyond the minimum or maximum calibrated limit, a continuous diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is stored. Poor continuity through the TP sensor connectors Poor continuity through the TP harness Intermittent open or short inside the TP sensor While accessing the TP V PID on the scan tool, lightly tap on the TP sensor or wiggle the TP sensor connector and harness.
Some systems require that the actuator has an adequate supply of brake fluid. Low brake fluid levels can mimic the symptoms of code B3811, so consult the manual to locate the brake fluid reservoir. Bear in mind that a low fluid level can set code B3811 on some applications, so make sure that on fluid operated systems the fluid level is up to the mark before starting an electrical diagnosis.
If your servo motor potentiometer vent circuit short to ground check engine light is illuminated, it's best to take it in for diagnostic testing, which can feel like a hassle. Because while the lights vary in appearance from vehicle to vehicle, all have the same basic meaning: There's a problem with the car's emissions system. The on-board diagnostics system B3811 and engine control unit are in charge of monitoring a bunch of different servo motor potentiometer vent circuit short to ground, and if they get a reading that's a little out of whack, up pops the check engine light.
