Usually when you keep getting those codes it indicates that the throttle body needs to be replaced.

It is possible that a poor connection at the connector of the throttle body or also a wiring problem in the harness. But generally those codes lead to a throttle body.

Are you still there?

Yes I am here. Its not really the carbon build up as the sensors are not reading as the computer thinks they should and puts the car into a limp mode.
