Help!! ZJ randomly stops and sputters

I got a full detail on my zj, and the detailer cleaned my engine. After driving out of the parking lot, my service engine light came on. Now, when I start my jeep, it will randomly idle/rev. Also, when I drive, my jeep will die while sitting at a light. I feel like it's barely chugging along. I was told that after a few days, it would be okay. It's been about 5 days and the problem hasn't really gotten any better.

Check for water in the PCM connectors.

I took it by autozone, and they gave me a print read-out. It's the TPS. Now I just have to find out how to fix that.

It's easy. You unplug and unscrew the one on your throttle body and you put a new Mopar TPS in.
