TPS Replacement Connector Part Number

Recommended Posts

Looks like on my project Boxster, a CEL (code P0123) is caused by a rodent chewing through some wires.  The project car is a ‘97 Manual.


Does anyone have a part number for the connector that plugs into the TPS, or know where I can find one to splice in?  The Bosch part # for the TPS is 0280122016

3 wires/3pins

The BOSCH part number on the outside of the TPS doesn’t come with a connector anywhere that I can find. Amazon showed one, but it wrong. It isn’t for the right TPS connector that I need. 


0 280 122 016 - TPS 


000 545 25 84 - number on correct connector (no luck)

I think what you want is:

999 652 886 22  Connector -- US MSRP $2.26 each (3 needed)

999 652 916 40 Plug socket -- US MSRP $11.12 (1 needed)

999 704 161 40 Seal -- US MSRP $0.50 each (3 needed)


Those will allow you to reconstruct the connector.

In an attempt to find a “plug and play” solution, I found what looks to be an EXACT match for the TPS and connector. I ordered one and it came in today. Both the TPS and connector was about $11. 


I figured worst case scenario, I would replace the TPS and then becassured of a connector that fit.




The outside look a little different. 


End view of connectors looks to be exact match



And the two TPS sockets look exactly alike. 


Even the part that connects to the Throttle Body looks the same.

I believe I have the same issue-p0123,  the wires to the tps are not chewed through and severed,  but the outside protective hosing is chewed on, and the wires are exposed. I am guessing I will need to do the same as you. how did this work for you?


thanks for posting!
