My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Make sure you reconnected everything properly when the repairs were done.I have seen in some cases where pinched or damaged wiring can cause this as well as an incorrectly reading engine coolant temp sensor.If this is or was checked and found o.k. let me know.
Thanks Pete

still trying to figure out problem cts repaced, cked grounds and harness also reprogrammed ecm not start

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
I would re check the timing to make sure everything is aligned properly.I have seen in several cases before where timing is an issue and will cause this fault here even if off a tooth or 180 degrees off.
Thanks Pete

Is the TPS still showing wide open throttle even though the throttle is closed?
Let me know,thanks Pete.

YES TPS IS WIDE OPEN EVEN THOUGH THROTTLE CLOSED

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
Inspect the wiring from the TPS for any shorts or damage as this sounds like the possible cause here for this issue.
Thanks Pete
