Its the pedal position sensor.
It is part of a accelorator assembly. Its not a cheap part.

As I see it, your options are (1) buy a new part at great expense; (2) buy a second hand part if you can locate one; or (3) try to repair the sensor.

check the throttle cable for binding or fraying, then check the movement of the throttle shaft with the cable unhooked as they can wear and cause binding. if the cable is worn replace if the throttle shaft is binding replace assembly. check to make sure the gas pedal is not binding as well.

Low power

First thing to do is get the computer scanned for trouble codes. The codes will point you to what needs to be tested.
Chances are its the throttle position sensor, but it could be several other things.

Check wiring around the throttle motor assy on the top of the engine. This harness sometimes rubs through on hot engine surfaces.

Stiff accelorator pedal

It is either the cable that goes from the pedal to the throttle body, or the throttle plate is sticking.
