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.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
Check for any vacuum leaks on the engine as this can cause rough idle and running as well as idle fluctuation.If there are no visible vacuum leaks I would have the intake smoke tested with a smoke machine that injects smoke into the intake to locate any hard to see leaks like intake gaskets leaking needing replaced.
Thanks Pete

I do not think is a vacuum problem, all 4 codes are throttle related , is a throttle electric issue or is a program issue the car does nothing when I push the gas pedal

The codes are
Pedal Position Sensor Potentiometer Supply Chanel 1 ElectricalP0123
Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch A Circuit HighP0222
Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch B Circuit LowP1417
Thottle Control Incorrect Air SupplyYour answer has nothing to do with this codes, the problem is a sensor or electrical,

I apologize my answer didn't help here.Unfortunately that's all the info I have on this here myself.I will have to open this question up for others here to see if they can assist further on this as someone else here may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.
Thanks Pete
