Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport
First, test your tps with a multimeter to make sure it is good. Explorers and mustangs are knownto go through them every decade or so. Reading should be smooth from no pedal all the way to wide open throttle.
If the tps tests ok, the relearn procedure is simple. Disconnect the battery for 30 minutes or so. Reconnect the terminal and start the engine. Just let it sit there idling for 10 to 15 minutes. Then turn the A/c to max cool on high fan for a minute or two. Drive around and see how it does. You can turn the ac off or not. The end.

Look where your throttle cables etc are attached at throttle body, it should be at opposite end of the shaft that operates throttle plate in front of throttle body opening. Usually held on with Torx screws

If there is a Auto Zone around your area, have them scan the Explorer for any DTC codes since it's fee of charge. But in the mean time buy a can of MAF cleaner and follow the instructions and also buy a can of Trottle body cleaner and follow the instructions on the can. Clean the MAF and the Throttle body, also try to get the Idle Air Control falve cleaned too which is on the throttle body. So use up the whole can of Throttle body cleaner and it would not hurt to use two cans. Once everything is cleaned that should fix the problem, the other thing to that would cause your poor idle and stalling is a bad or dirty EGR valve which can be cleaned with Carburetor cleaner since it's stronger then the Throttle body cleaner, just remove the EGR and spray the Carbon build away and place back in place. Note: the Carb cleaner is to strong for the gaskets used on the throttle body so don't use it on the throttle body. Good luck and this should help get your Explorer running 100% soon.

You have to remove your glove box and it is behind there. Here is a picture of where it is. This particular picture is from a 4 X 4 so if you don't have that it won't have the 4X4 part. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

i would not just go buy a tps on a guess
first check to see if you can bring the throttle up by hand at the motor where the throttle cable connects to the throttle body it may be a cable that broke

Testimonial: "Yes it does move and appears to be ok."
How to find the Security Keyless Keypad Code on the 1995-2001 Ford
Explorer or Mountaineer and how to use the Keypad functions. The factory
code is also printed on a label which is installed on the Remote
Anti-theft Personality (RAP) Module. This is the module that controls
the keyless entry system. It is
located in the left rear quarter behind the removable panel (see photo).
You will need to turn the two thumb screws counter clockwise and take
the plastic panel off to be able to see the unit. A flashlight may be
helpful in seeing the code. You are looking for the module and the 5
digit code on it like the one shown below.
Now that you’ve got the code I’ll tell you how to use the Keyless entry and set-up your own code.Make sure when pressing the controls on the keyless entry keypad you press the middle of the buttons to ensure good contact with the controls.
Check this for Programing the Keypad.
Hope this help (remember rated this comment).
