SOURCE: pedal position malfunction
You can change the tps alone. You do not have to change the entire throttle body. It shouldn't be riveted in place, it should have screws or bolts on one side or the other. If it's riveted in place, use a dremmel and grind the rivets off. You can replace rivets with screws on the new unit.

there is no adjustment on these tps's it's a drive by wire system. If you don't know the vehicle, dont post!
there's 2 sensors contained in the pedal sensor, and one on the throttle plate shaft, more often than not, it's the pedal sensor, and if you replaced that, it's the other one or a loose connection. did you reset the computer after replacing the pedal?

if you feel confident in using a digital auto test meter. Disconnect the sensor, and check the value range with the test meter to ensure it is within the set parameters.
However, before embarking on that task. Some ECU's will display a fault code, but will require re-setting to clear the code. With a new sensor fitted the ECU should re-set, although some "hold" the code in memory, it does not come up as a visible fault. Some vehicles can be driven a few miles, then the ECU will learn that the new sensor is within specs and will react accordingly.
