sense you get the 122 code and you have replaced the tps ..i would think your problem may be the wiring to the tps..

you need to check the wiring and the harness plug to the tps

also,you may want to disconnect the harness plugs from the pcm[computer] and clean the terminals on the pcm and the plug connectors
