your trans is in limp mode , until you fix the eclectric connector open it won't work right. check your gas pedal and see if that sensor is sending anything to the throttle body if it's electrically operated. check yoru fuel pressure but make sure you fix the other problem with short or open as that may be causing all your problems.
