Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you replaced the TPS, cleared the fault code and it returned then you either have a bad replacement sensor or a wiring issue. Aftermarket electrical parts do often cause repeat issues but it's very possible that you have a wiring issue, the next step in diagnosing the problem will be to test the wiring. You could have an open circuit on the reference voltage circuit, sensor ground or signal circuit, there may be a short to ground or voltage on the signal circuit.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
