Fuel Cutoff Question Scangauge E for a 2000 Mazda

I have a Scangauge E and when off the pedal or coasting my unit will say 9999 . Now I have it at default 24 which apparently the number my car needs. Further reading say 4 above no throttle TPS.

Is there a screen in the Scangauge E that says TPS ? And if so how do I access it?

Or do most just set the cutoff to 0 to disable?

On the Scangauge E, there are three screens on which you can customize the gauges by pressing the buttons on the right, next to the gauges. Keep pressing until you see TPS. To cycle between the screens, use the buttons on the left.

Refer to the user manual, it has an easy to understand picture which explains the screens and the custom gauges. Good luck.

Btw, what Mazda do you have?

I have a 2000 Mazda 626 4cyc automatic

Also when am I supposed to read the TPS number to base my cutoff with? Should I be driving?

You want to set your cutoff value to be 4 above idle TPS.
