I’m looking for a throttle body post 1997 that is non ASR to replace my BIO-junk ETA. Using a VIN and checking datamb doesn’t tell me if a car has ASR. I have two leads on cars at junk yards but I don’t want to pull a wrong ETA. Is there a way tell visually? Thx

If you have a button on the dash that looks like a tire with chains - ASR. When you turn the ignition switch to the second position and the dash lights illuminate, ASR cars will have a yellow triangle just below 12 o'clock on the speedometer.

Thx I do recall seeing the triangle in comments previously. Trouble in the junkyard is that I can’t see the illumination of the triangle.

ASR cars have a cutout in the center of speedo which hides the yellow ASR warning light. Even if the donor is in a junk yard without means of testing the dash, that is how you can spot the difference.
