I had drafted a response of the same opinion but then deleted when it seemed to me that this TB hadn't been off.  But perhaps it's slipped.  I got the HS code after doing my belt.  I won't go into how sure I was that I had installed the belt correctly, but suffice to say it was off a tooth and that damn hall sensor code wouldn't go away.  I was sure there was a sensor problem, but Keith put me right -- I called in a favor to a local p/a tech, borrowed the cam lock tools, and sure enough, the belt was off.  Redid the belt, the code went bye-bye.

So if it's slipped, consider yourself effin lucky.
