Year, make, model, engine size would be helpful. The TPS would be located on the throttle body on the opposite side ot the throttle cable

No throttle response

You could be right in thinking it is a problem with the throttle position sensor, but in the wiring back to the computer rather than the sensor itself.
Another option may be the engine is starving for fuel when the problem happens. Things like a weak fuel pump, or a faulty O2 sensor among other things.
If the fuel pressure drops, then recovers, you would get the same effect.
A mechanic would use a scanner to watch the sensors when the problem occurs.

I have 3 codes p1125, p1295, and p1515 and was wondering what they are

p1125 tells you the vehicule has gone into (limp) mode or reduced power. p1295 will direct you to a problem with your Throtlle position sensor and p1515 fault indicates theres a problem with the corilation between throttle position and commande giving.

i own a 2001 rodeo LS 3.2L and had this codes show up. The machine had really bad idling and when accelerating quick after first start would go into limp mode and not pick up speed pass 50 kms. i tryed changing the throttle position sensor.. nothing. tryed changing the spark plugs and noticed they looked unusually white (engine running lean) i put injector cleaner in with i freash tank of gas thinking the injectors were dirty and it seemed to help. Next a changed the fuel filter which completly solved my problem. at the last oil change they told me they changed it but didn't the inside of the filter was rusted and clogged starving the engine of fuel.

Problem solve for 15 $ after you change your filter take it to and auto parts store with a computer to reset the engine lights

The throttle position sensor responds to the accelerator pedal movement. This sensor is a kind of potentiometer which transforms the throttle position into output voltage and emits the voltage signal to the ECM. In addition, the sensor detects the opening and closing speed of the throttle valve and feeds the voltage signal to the ECM. Idle position of the throttle valve is determined by the ECM receiving the signal from the throttle position sensor. This one controls engine operation such as fuel cut, etc. The throttle position sensor unit has a built-in “wide open and closed throttle position switch,” which is not used to control the engine. For the G35, the throttle position sensor is part of the throttle control actuator.

Diagram throttle position sensor for jeep grand cherokee limited 2004

Take the Intake Air Hose off. This goes from the Air Filter to the Throttle Housing. When you see the Throttle Gate draw a horizontal line across the center - this should be the the Throttle Gate Pivot Arm. The Throttle Position Sensor is lined up with this Pivot Arm. It should be the only sensor lined-up with this. There should be a Idle Air Sensor that is located above this, but this is not lined-up to the Throttle Gate Pivot Arm.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me on!

Engine hesitates when starting in first and when throtlle depressed 1/4 inch or so

Check all vacuum hoses for small leaks, check throttle position sensor and map sensor, possibly intake air temp sensor as well. Instructions for that can be found in most inexpensive manuals such as chiltons or haynes, you can also have codes scanned at most larger parts stores. Use digital multi-meter for individual component tests.

I researched this & you need to replace the throttle body gasket & get the throttle body re-calibrated. Seems to be dealer only. Also, the t.p.s. (throttle position sensor) could be bad.
