We'll I did change the battery and lo and behold it fixed all my issues. She now idles fine and runs like she did prior.
As a side note the battery that I pulled out was the one put in from the factory. I can only hope this one last as long.

|ljjp10||Sorry not AIC, should have said IAC. Good Luck|

|ljjp10||The battery doesn't keep your jeep running after start up, that's the alternators job. You might be having TPS problems again. Idle problems also can point to your AIC. Do a search, really easy to clean. Good Luck|

Well I know is been way too long since I posted. Since my original a few things have occurred.
1 I finally broke down after repeated tps sensors and took it to a mechanic (drum roll). Mice had apparently eaten the wiring under the dash so a brand new harness put in.
2 I know have another issue that I am working on. It no longer idles at all let my foot off the gas engine just stops. No sputtering or anything RPMs just drop to 0. At first I was thinking fuel filter. Now I'm thinking its a bad battery. I'm gonna replace it tomorrow and see if that works.
After I had the wiring harness replaced it ran like I remember it.

|Dac7529||Either way. always clear the codes from the pcm before Starting the engine after a new electroniccontrol component is installed. You must reset the computer it will force your computer to relearn the new operating Parametrs. "The pcm may set a trouble code if a new sensor is allowed to operate before the paramaters from the old sensor have been erase electronic|

|mrpotatohead||Definitely check the wiring. I went through a TPS every time it rained (it took me a few times to finally get suspicious) or I washed my Jeep and found a few chaffed wires on the connector|

Yessir aftermarket parts are very inconsistent even when claimed to meet OEM specs. I personaly prefer true OEM parts mopar dahlmer chrysler. not aftermarket parts that claim to be oem.

|Dac7529||You got my point exactly. But I wasn't Gonna argue that auto zone sells crap.|

Well contrary to popular belief disconnecting the neg battery cable to reset the computer
only works on 91-95 models. 1997 and later models codes must be cleared from the pcm memory using a scan tool, after the new tps is installed that is. Your throwing a PO122. throttle position sensor input below the minimum acceptable voltage. Get your pcm cleared By a scan tool then go from there. If you've bought more than one tPS and your still throwing that code then either the pcm needs resetting or its in the wiring/connector. Good luck.

In the case of the TPS, failure is more a matter of when, not if. The OE part will likely last long enough to outlive its 12 month warranty. Then you get to pay all over again. Been there, done that. Don't do it any more. When my TPS fails, I'll put it on the counter and walk out the door with a new one. For that matter, my parts store TPS has already outlasted the OE part.

|C.L.||Get one from the dealer. It will cost more for ONE sensor, but less than buying 5 from auto-zone... The forums are full of people reporting out-of-the-box failures on parts store TPS. Also, leave your negative battery cable off overnight after changing it to reset the computer. It'll clear the code, and then "relearn" the new sensor within a couple hours of driving.|

|Herbie424||Sort of the same issue here. I went straight to the dealer for this one. Little nore expensive but atleast I knew the part would work and if it didn't they would replace it again.|

|Mom sold the Jeepster||I had to get 3 different replacement TPS til I got one that works. Lots of guys on the forum recommend original equipment TPS from the dealer|

|tangofox007||It would be a good idea to inspect the TPS connector and associated wiring. If possible, round up a OBD2 scanner the provides real-time sensor data.|

Hey guys new to the forum and i need some help. Little over a year and a half ago while driving down the interstate my jeep a 03 wrangler sport I6 4.0 acted like I lost power and seemed to be cutting in and out, then the check engine light came on. I quickly went and got it checked. P122 code. Got a new sensor put it on but its never been back to the same ol jeep I had in the past. I still have the code showing, changed the sensor twice now with no real improvement. Had it in the shop a few times and they say they can't find anything wrong with it. it always acts like it cuts in and out at around 45-55mph. With winter coming if I can't get this fixed I'm screwed
