HELP, error code 36 and 7?

Due to the ontario goverment I need to get my emissions test done so I switched my p28 with my stock p30 ecu. as soon as I put it in I threw a code 7 with is the TPS and a code 36 which is the JDM traction control code. I switched ecu's back and the code still exists, I resist the ecu by pulling the proper fuses and disconnecting the battery still same thing.
Its reving really low, I mean like 100rpm at idle and sometimes stalls out. I figure thats the TPS sensor but the sensor is ok itself. The connector to the TPS is only at .1 on the power meter or something like that and I was told its suppose to be reading .5??? on all three connections?

Does anyone have any clue how to fixe either problem??
Does anyone have a diagram of the P30 because I heard if the ground the traction control wire it will rid the error so my vtec and **** will work?

Please feel free to give me any knowledge you have because i need my car back ASAP.

Thanks

your traction ctrl is just a bull**** code. I believe its just stored in the computer, just like ELD. (i may be wrong about this, but im pretty sure)

your tps code.. well.. Check if your harness clip is getting the proper voltage, if so replace the tps and calibrate it

Thanks for the response chris...
I thought it disengaged vtec? not positive thou it could have been the other code.
I replaced the TPS and its still ****ed so I am guessing its the wiring from the ECU to the TPS. It is only reading 1 volt when I am sure they are suppose to be reading 5 volts each.
Does anyone have anyclue how to override code 36?

Thanks

ya, code 36 is a BS code b/c obviously our cars don't have traction control, i get this code on pretty much every car i use the p30 code (in crome) on. This WILL NOT cause the CEL to come on and will only throw the code when you have the service connectors jumped.
If you are getting .1V on the TPS then what makes you think its ok? It should be .5V at closed throttle, you can try adjusting it (if its not rivetted on) until you get to .5V at closed, but if that doesn't work, i'd say its safe to assume that the TPS sensor itself if junk.

You do NOT have to "over ride" code 36 b/c it won't cause the CEL to come on.

if you want kingjames.. if your close to oakville ill look at your tps problem. Is there the right amount of voltage getting to the sensor?

thanks for the offer chris but its fixed now.... turns out it was wear on the factory harness from rubbing on the firewall and it finally shorted out but when it shorted it blew my TPS. So they fixed the factory harness, replaced the TPS and also my timing was 28 degrees advanced so they took her back down to 18 so its not a sluggish.

Thanks for the offer thou...

Thanks to Zeeman too, you were right

damn?!?!? your dizzy must have been as far towards the firewall as possible.....lol.
I normally set the timing to 16 BTDC on b16s, but i believe honda allows for +/- 2 degrees when setting the base timing.
Before you go for an etest, its always a good idea to check the base timing and adjust if necessary.
Glad you figured it all out james.
Cheers
