thanks for the reply.
i did extensive research yesterday on this site and came up with the conclusion that removing the EFI fuse for a minute is the "best" method to clear the trac light.
too bad i read the response to the email after i struggled all day yesterday trying to jump the OBD switch pins under the dash/hood without any luck.
The best way was the removal of the EFI fuse, it's on the right side of the hood right behind the battery. there is a black box cover, two screws hold it on top of the fuse box.
the fuse for EFI is a 20A fuse. however here is a cylinder shaped fuse/part that says EFI as well. not sure what that was but i removed that as well to be on the safe side.
now the trac light is gone !
The dealer quoted me $395 to change the TPS. 110 for the part and two hours labor ! how can taking two screws out and replacing the TPS equate to two hours of labor ???
anyhow, the moral of the story is to use the "search button" on this site.
