I have a 2010 Mercury Mariner Nova edition and last week we got the dreaded wrench light and the vehicle just started to quit while driving. After doing some research and taking it to my mechanic it appeared to the the TPS. Thanks to Ford this part cannot be replaced on its own and the part is on national back order. Funny there is not a recall but you can't get the part because so many of them have gone bad.
Anyway, I was able to track one down and at the regular price and recieved it today. My question is can I replace this myself or is there some programming that has to be done. This is not out of my range as I do quite a bit of work on my cars and have had Fords since I was 18. This is my first Mariner/Escape so I am still getting familiar with it. It is really my daughters car but I have been driving it as it is too dangerous to drive as it just quits anytime it feels like it.
