Throttle Actuation Potentiometer Sign. 2 Range/Performance on 1999 Honda Passport

I get the code p1171 on my odb2 machine which means Throttle Actuation Potentiometer Sign. 2 Range/Performance. How would this cause my car to run? and how do I go about fixing this problem?

I probably would make the shifting a little off and likely cause engine throttle response problems. It's likely that the electronic throttle position sensor is faulty but the way to diagnose it would be to use a data reading scanner and watch the voltage or percentage readings to see if it's working right. Go from there depending on what the diagnosis is.
