Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The problem and most of the codes you setting indicate a problem with the throttle body and can be caused by any of the following,

  • Connector — Connector pin resistance or loose fitting contacts.
  • Throttle Body Assembly
  • Throttle Potentiometers

    In order to determine the cause you are going to need to do some testing starting with cleaning the throttle body. I have enclosed the steps in the link below, copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them.
