throttle position sensor situation

well since my father washed my engine its been acting up and the only code it threw was the tps, the problem is I have a edge module that modifys the tps

I have no idea which unit failed and my jeep keeps dieing until it gets warm

and its weird shifting because the rpms drop like a rock

what do I do now?

EDIT( I took everything connected to the tps apart although I left the tps connected to the throttle body) still idling funning and stalling a bit

Even with the Edge module can't you still replace the TPS? or does the module actually replace the TPS?

Since it's water related...try unplugging your TPS sensor and see if there's any water present in the connectors. Dry em out real good...clean up the terminals, plug it all back in and reset your computer and see if your problem goes away. If you're lucky, maybe there's still water in the connection causing a short.

The Edge module doesn't actually modify the TPS, just buy a new TPS if it doesn't clear up after drying the connectors out like s3nt suggested. Flushing them with WD-40 is a good way to get rid of moisture.

I even used a blow dryer, no luck

the rpms are making the car almost stall and its hard to shift

I am gonna leave her alone for a week since I am driving without a sway bar and I am waiting on my rear bumper, and front endlinks to arrive

I will be doing a lot of mudding, what can I do to prevent this... because I am not happy about this situation

Mud and muddy water work their way into electrical connectors and that makes it tough for newer vehicles that depend on their sensors and computers to run properly. If you want to continue running in mud, about the best you can hope for is to buy a big tube of dielectric grease and after taking apart every connector in the engine compartment, apply it liberally to all the connectors and then put them back together. Do this with your distriutor cap where it seats against the distributor housing, inside your ignition wiring connectors, everything.

Personally I avoid mud like the plague... it's just too hard on a vehicle that is also driven on the street. Electrical connectors, seals, u-joints, bearings, etc. are all vulnerable to mud and soupy muddy water.
