Default 03 Honda civic trouble code PO122, Throttle position sensor, low voltage.?

Is throttle body replacement the only fix for this? My repair manual says the sensor is not removable.

I'll do some homework. see you tomorrow.Ok what I've found is that if you don't have the voltage going to the TPS then you'll have to chase down wiring to a possible ground or computer problem. You're needing 5 volts at the sensor. It'll be easier to have a scanner to hook up to see what the TPS is at closed(10% or 5V) and fully open(90% or 4.5V). If you can't see that then comes the wire hunting.If you have a good power and ground then the thottle body will need to be replaced.Please take all volt measurement with a good meter.Good luck

You can replace the TPS without replacing the whole throttle body.
The TPS is held in by rivets instead of screws. Just use a hacksaw to carefully cut slots in the top of the rivets so you can use a screwdriver to back them out. When you put the new TPS in just use standard screws.
