Just bought a 92 Galant that had an open TPS code. Thought it would be an easy fix. Put the new one in and it still won't start. The car had been sitting for four months. What else do I need to look for?

Clean the throttle plate(back side) and throttle body(inside), brake clean and a tooth brush. Replace the fuel filter. This will take care of your problem. Beware though, since the filter was clogged it could have weakened the fuel pump. This would be the next thing to die.
Your OBD 1 that means put two wire together and it will flash the code by counting the flashes of the ck engine light if your production date is 9/91 you have a recall on the 02 sensor it doesnt matter how long you owned it or if your not the original owner here is the recall number EMR 92 003 but here the deal its only for car in the states like california any other place your out of luck to access the code you will need a voltmeter there it will flash or a analog voltmeter there you will measure the sweep of the needle movement to get the code go under the dash and find the 12 pin connector on the driver side kick panel top right corner is pin 1 and lower left is ground or pin 12 or chasis ground watch the meter movement and count the flashes first flash is long second is short example for code 12 its one long flash is for number 1 two short flash is 2 for code 22 its two long flashes thats 2 and 2 short flash is 2 put it together its 22 there can be a combination of code there your care doesnt really have that much management just EGR, TPS, just the simple needs
With my galant it just happened out of nowhere . I opened the trunk with the latch and when i was finished in the trunk ... my trunk will no longer latch. I thought maybe because it is getting colder but never had this problem b4. I am unemployed right now I need some DIY or very cheap Im talking 40 or less.. to fix it . this is dangerous especially because i am a mother of three. Please any suggestion as to what it might be. and cost s
Check TPS (throttle position sensor) for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, or the EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) solenoid failed. Easy fix in pan. Fix as soon as possible or hard parts will eventually break. The ECM uses the signal from the TPS to calculate the transmission line pressure for shift firmness through the EPC. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya
????1762 should be a transmission problem!!! Makes no sense at all. Review: you had a tps code (but the engine ran well?) You changed it and it threw injector codes and ran poorly...You took it out and put the old one back (was code still there? Did it run well?) You put another new one in and now you have a transmission code? and how is it running? Only commonality here is that the tps runs in tandem with all other sensors Make sure you clear old codes after doing any work and see what comes up after driving through a few cycles/ And get a volt/ohm meter and test the tps to see if in fact it's out of range. It somehow sounds more like a MAP sensor problem..or even a harness problem....but, test before getting anything else.
