Error code help

So my jeep has been running a little rough lately and tonight the check enging light came on and I got code #24 -Throttle position sensor input above or below acceptable voltage. TPS signal does not correlate to MAP sensor.

Anyone know of some things I could check? I kind of want to try to fix it myself. It has been sputtering a lot lately and not idling right at all. Sometimes it will idle at high RPMs and sometimes it will stutter like it wants to die, but it never actually has.

Any suggestions??

i can barely remember, i think the sensor is held in by 2 bolts and might be a little challenging to either get to the bolts or take it off

cant really remember but its not that bad!

I've seen prices for the TPS all over the map. I cant see how, but I wonder if there is any difference between various brands or if there are different types or something.

Come go for a ride and I'll be glad to demonstrate the difference between what you perceive incorrectly as "control" and what control actually is.

Pick a different reason because that one is both lame and stupid to perpetuate.

I am picking up the part tomorrow and probably going to try and install it on saturday so I will post how it all goes. It is weird because it drives fine when i am moving but whenever i come to a stop it wants to die on me, but if i keep my foot barely on the gas and revving it is okay.

I hope replacing the sensor is the only thing.

Must be easy. Young guy was changing his in the Advance Parts parking lot when I drove in to dispose of some oil tonight.
