You should be setting the TPS by shorting the two wires on the service plug and adjusting so the bar is in the middle on the LCD display.
Without the engine running the lower or middle bar may be visible.
Start the engine, allow it to idle.
At 1200 RPM the center adjustment bar should be visible.
If the center bar is not visible, the TPS must be adjusted.
Use the Security Torx tool to loosen the TPS screws.
Rotate the TPS until the upper bar is visible.
Expect a delay of about one second as the bar display changes.
Slowly rotate the TPS in the other direction until the center bar becomes visible.
Use light pressure, as a small amount of movement on the TPS will result in a large change on the display.
After adjusting the TPS, tighten the screws.
Check to make sure the center bar is still visible.
Rev the engine slightly and allow it to idle.
Adjust the TPS again if the center bar is not visible.
TPS adjustment above idle must be checked.
As the throttle opens, just past idle the bar should become visible in the top position.
Closing the throttle and allowing the engine to idle should return the bar to center.
Always check the adjustment bar display after tightening throttle position screws.
