    P0122 has nothing to do with "throttle/pedal position sensor". It is a TPS(throttle position sensor). following is the test to check the TPS.
    Tests/Procedures:
    1. Check the wiring harness real close for damage. The Violet/White wire should have 5 volts on it. The Black/Blue wire should have 0 volts, this is the ground. The Orange/Blue wire is the signal wire and normally is at 0.5 volts at closed throttle and increases with throttle opening. This circuit will have 5 volts on it with the sensor disconnected. Look for wires melted together or shorting to ground for this circuit. Repair as needed.
    The TPS is located on the throttle body.

    its located on the drivers side. The throttle possition sensor is a round cylinder switch with a wire plugged into it and is mounted horizontal
