You have an issue with the Throttle Pedal Position Sensor or wiring..."circuit high" means that there is a lot of resistance or open in the circuit.

With an issue with the Throttle Pedal Position Sensor, the ECU will disable Traction Control and reduce Engine Power...The ECU has no clue as to what the Throttle Pedal Position is.
