Question about Cars & Trucks
We replaced the tps, but it did not fix it.
Um, that's kinda normal for the idle to bump up when the car's computer senses an extra draw on the electrical system
what you can do is to check the drive belt and make sure it's not overly stretched
or do a charging system test (free at a local autozone or advance auto parts store)
as well as a battery load test (also free from my local parts store)
how high of an idle is it bumping up to? tach reading?

TPS not mounted securely.
TPS circuit short to ground or another wire.
Damaged computer (PCM).
to fix this code you can try this:
Carefully check the throttle position sensor (TPS), wiring connector, and wiring for breaks, etc. Repair or replace as necessary
Check the voltage at the TPS (refer to a service manual for your vehicle for specific information). If the voltage is too low that is indicative of a problem. Replace if necessary.
If recently replaced the TPS may need to be adjusted. On some vehicles the installation instructions call for the TPS to be properly aligned or adjusted, consult a repair manual for specifics.
If there are no symptoms at all, the problem may be intermittent and clearing the code may resolve the issue temporarily. If this is the case then you should definitely check the wiring to be sure it's not rubbing on anything, grounding, etc. The code may come back.
