Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. Just wondering why you replaced the TPS? Did it test bad? When this happens does the ABS light or the check engine light come on?

When hard braking transmission will not engage immediately but teach will show engine is revving up

Have the transmission control module scanned for fault codes then. Transmission faults usually will not turn on the check engine light and need to be read with a scan tool with that capability.

Is it possible control module is malfunctioning

I dont think so. Since its after a hard stop I believe it has something to do with the transmission fluid line pressure. Check the transmission fluid. Make sure its full, a nice reddish/pink color and doesnt smell burnt
