TPS Wire on a 1LT 2013

I am installing a ZEX NOS kit on my 2013 1LT. In their install manual they say to hook up the white wire on the control module to the purple WOT wire on the TPS. Trouble is there is NO purple wire. They also say it should be a six wire connector. It is a 5 wire connector. When I call and talk to their techs they treat me like I am stupid "which is debateable". They then tell me to test meter each wire to check between .2 and 5V from closed to wide open throttle. None of the wires do it. The colors are Yellow, Brown, Light blue with a white stripe, Tan and then Gray. The Gray has 4.99V. And the Yellow goes from very little voltage to about 2.3 and bounces with the limiter. The others have about 1.4v. One has nothing. Oh and now my emmisions light is stuck on. I would greatly appreciate any info on which wire is the correct wire and how to get the light off now. Thanks.

How are you checking the wires? You have to have it plugged into the TPS while you are looking for the signal wire. I assume you are piercing the wires which is fine but sometimes hard to maintain a good connection.

Key on, engine not running should be fine for this testing too. I'd look into the yellow wire more don't open the throttle real fast. The CEL is likely on because you were unplugging things.

I was thinking the same thing on the light being on. Saw on another post to do the ingnition thing on and off for certain lengths of time to reset it. Going to do that in a few minutes to see if it fixes the light thing. And yeah I was checking that yellow wire with both the car running and not running. simply because the first tech guy at ZEX told me to do it with it running then the second guy told me to only do it with the car off. I am sure there is something that is an easy fix for this just that no one has run into it yet. I do appreciate the help on this. gonna suck if I spent over $600 for something that won't work on my car. But I doubt that is going to be the case.

You will find the wire you need eventually. All TPS sensors work the same. The primitive ones I usually work with only have 3 wires...makes it easy.
