P2111 Kia Description

The throttle actuator is operated by the Engine Control Module (ECM) and it opens and closes the throttle valve using gears.

The throttle position sensor provides feedback to the ECM to control the throttle actuator and set the throttle valve angle in response to driver inputs.
