Hello George,my name is***** will be assisting you today.

The fault coeds that you are getting are TPS no adapts. The happens when there is a fault inside the ETC, (throttle valve) on the engine. If you are under warranty you can get it replaced by a local dealer, if you are not, you are going to need to order a new one. If you provide the serial number of the engine, I can get the part number for you.
