Yeah we did pretty well, thanks. Just sweating from the heat and waiting for the batteries to die :)
12 and 17 are for your vehicle speed sensor and throttle position sensor, respectively.
I take it your speedometer is working okay? Can we check your throttle sensor on a scan tool and make sure it is reading 600mv while closed and when opened the village increases linearly?
If everything looks okay, let's unhook the battery to clear codes then recheck and see if both return.

Sorry, having a hard time getting internet access!
If you don't have access to a scan tool you can use a multimeter. Unplug the tps and check for voltage with the key on (note this will set the engine light on). When you find the wire with 5v, plug it back in and back probe the 5v wire and see what the voltage is at rest.

Hey wher are these sensors located??
Expert:  Doug replied 9 months ago.
The tps is located on the side of the throttle body, it is the one with two screws holding it on and appears slotted for adjustment (it is). The vehicle speed sensor is in the left side of the tail shaft housing on the transmission/transfer case. On that one, check for fluid leaking through the sensor as well as wiring damage more so than sensor failure since the speedo works.
