Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire
The code is for your throttle position sensor.
This sensor tells the computer how far the throttle is open, if this sensor is faulty the computer does not know how to manage fuel and ignition, or will not do it well.
Unplugging the map sensor only makes the computer revert to theoretical settings to allow the vehicle to run.
It looks as if your problem is with the throttle position sensor or its circuit.
Hope this brings you closer to a solution, remember to leave feedback and vote. Good Luck
