You need to run a electronic engine control fault code test on this before replacing nay parts, the TPS is likely not the cause of the problem. Most Autozone's do this test for free as well as Aamco transmission repair shops

It could be one of two things: the throttle position sensor which isn't too costly. The oxygen sensor which usually costs quite a bit. Have the code checked

You have a bad (clogged) fuel filter. Have it replaced, they're cheap, you should be fine after that.

Sounds like the auto throttle is jammed or the throttle pedal is jammed. Try pushing on the gas pedal a few times to see if it frees.

The throttle positioning sensor might be at fault. But check connections first.If it is only does this when the motor is cold it could be a temp. sensor. Check the trouble codes first.

2001 cadillca caterica the radio shuts off and

Check or replace/repair the K134 multi function relay module located under and up the dash on drivers side. Its about the size of a pack of cigarettes and gray in color.

I opened mine and re-soldered all the components on the board. I had radio going on and off, trunk not opening, sunroof with mind of it's own, and dying battery.

All was solved with this module...under $100 at the dealer if you don't want to goof with it.

Radio, trunk and gas door do not work

Check all fuses both inside the car and under the hood. Consult the owners manual for the location of the fuse boxes.

Otherwise, have a mechanic troubleshoot the cars electrical system.
