    What would happen if I connect two of the exact same 5VDC Hall-effect throttle position sensors in parallel?
    Common grounds, common 5V supply, common signal.

    Would the signal just be the higher of the two?
    Would one "mess" with the other? Cause interference or something?
    Would one damage the other with reverse voltage?

    Here is a datasheet on the sensor:
    It is NOT being used in a Prius, it is used in a 2009 Dodge Avenger EV conversion.

    It *is* a dual-channel sensor, but I'm talking about paralleling each channel separately.

    There's a specific reason I ask this, but it's a long boring story...
