Anyone know where I can get this part? Dealer is charging $175 (special order) and all I seem to find online are used parts on Ebay. Please help.

If you haven't done a ECU/tranny reset yet - I would recommend doing that there is a slight chance something might change after the reset.

Sometimes it also can be a dirty throttle body.

The OEM sensor is Hella, and actually you can get the behind-the-pedal assembly used if you make like a $60 offer on eBay, the dealer part is Hella sensor only at $175 the OE Hella part is like $120 in internet aftermarket like partsgeek.com.

If you replace with a new sensor do a calibration procedure:

quick question about tps (throttle position sensor) - MBWorld.org Forums

Also a failing fuel pump can also set off the throttle sensor circuit.

It can be a little pesky, if it was me I would try the reset, buy a used assembly, and do the calibration

If it goes into the limp home mode when accelerating hard it is bad. As with anything on E-Bay be aware, get from a reputable source.

The most common name is Pedal Position Sensor.
You are getting it cheap bro. When I had one failing on my car 3 years ago, the retail was $450 and I was happy to find it for around $300 at Duval
Darn expensive potentiometer.
