Hello, do you know what the code number that was stored to indicate the tps was bad? Have you tried cleaning out the throttle body? This is a fly by wire throttle body with no throttle cables correct? You didnt mention what year or engine size the edge was

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
2009 ford edge. Looking for engine size
I didn't read the code. The mechanic told me what was supposed to.
Expert:  HDGENE replied 1 year ago.

More than likely if it is a fly by wire throttle body, there is an issue with the throttle body actuator that moves the throttle plate and usually sets codes like P2111 P2112 for instance and replacing the throttle body assembly would correct a loss of throttle response

you have to replace the whole boby. We just replaced the sensor. Flat looking with a connection that snaps into the top... little bigger than a man palm

The throttle body is what the tps sensor bolts to on the side, 4 bolts hold it to the intake manifold. The air inlet tube from the air filter housing wraps around the opening of the throttle body

Question. I have to change the whole thing vs just the sensor to make the problem go away
Expert:  HDGENE replied 1 year ago.

If it is setting codes for the throttle actuator system stuck open or closed then yes you would have to replace the throttle body
