its not ment to be reset, if the voltage is out of range its either stuffed or your base idle is set to high........

the engine will still start and run without the tps as it relies more on the map sensor,
but it still requires the tps for closed throttle for the isc ,accelerator enrichment and the auto needs tps for throttle position..

are you testing it between the green wire and black wire??

it should be 0.7v at closed throttle and around 3.7-4v at full throttle..

its best to test it between the green wire and the black wire on the tps, this wire is a signal return to the ecu, while it is earthed eventually its earthed through the ecu..
