I have a 2004 Dodge Caravan 2.4 Liter 4 cyl mini van. I replaced the TPS today and I am getting two OBD2 codes a P113 and 123 which is IAT Sensor Circuit High Input and TPS/Pedal Sensor A Circuit High Input. I already tested the voltage and it is normal. I am not sure what I need to do here. Can you please give me some advise?

Possible Causes
RELATED TPS ENGINE DTC'S PRESENT
POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE
INTERMITTENT WIRING AND CONNECTORS
Diagnostic Procedure
P0123-THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR/APPS HIGH - SYMPTOM
TESTACTION
1NOTE:
Low fluid level can be the cause of many transmission problems. If the fluid level is low locate and repair the leak then check and adjust the fluid level per the Service Information.

NOTE:
Always perform diagnostics with a fully charged battery to avoid false symptoms.

With the DRBIII , read Engine DTC's. Check and repair all Engine DTC's prior to performing any transmission symptom diagnostics. With the DRBIII , read Transmission DTC's. Record all DTC's and 1 Trip Failures.
NOTE:
Diagnose 1 Trip Failures as a fully matured DTC.

Using the wiring diagram/schematic as a guide, inspect the wiring and connectors. Repair as necessary. Perform the Shift Lever Position Test. If the test does not pass, refer to SYMPTOM: P0706-CHECK SHIFTER SIGNAL. For Gear Ratio DTC's, check and record all CVI's. Most DTC's set on start up but some must be set by driving the vehicle such that all diagnostic monitors have run.
NOTE:
Verify flash level of Powertrain Control Module. Some problems are corrected by software upgrades to the Transmission and Engine software.

NOTE:
Check for applicable TSB's related to the problem.

Perform this procedure prior to Symptom diagnosis.
Continue: Go To 2

2With the DRBIII , check Engine DTC's, this includes all one trip failures.
Are there any Engine TPS DTCs present?

Yes : refer to the Powertrain category and perform the appropriate symptom.
Perform 40/41TE (NGC) TRANSMISSION VERIFICATION TESTS - VER 1.
No : Go To 3

3With the DRBIII , record the EATX EVENT DATA to help identify the conditions in which the DTC was set.
With the DRBIII , erase Transmission DTCs.
NOTE:
To erase EATX EVENT DATA information, a BATTERY DISCONNECT must be performed. Performing a BATTERY DISCONNECT will reset all learned Transmission values to controller defaults which may lead to erratic shift schedules.

Drive the vehicle and try to duplicate the conditions in which the DTC was reported by the EATX EVENT DATA.
With the DRBIII , read Transmission DTCs.
Did the DTC P0123 THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR HIGH, reset?

Yes : Go To 4
No : Go To 5

4NOTE:
Due to the integration of the Powertrain and Transmission Control Modules, communication between the modules is internal.

Using the schematics as a guide, inspect the wiring and connectors. Repair as necessary. Pay particular attention to all power and ground circuits. If there are no possible causes remaining, view repair.
Repair: Replace the Powertrain Control Module per the Service Information. WITH THE DRBIII PERFORM QUICK LEARN.
Perform 40/41TE (NGC) TRANSMISSION VERIFICATION TESTS - VER 1.
5The conditions necessary to set this DTC are not present at this time.
Using the schematics as a guide, inspect the wiring and connectors specific to this circuit.
Wiggle the wires while checking for shorted and open circuits.
Pay particular attention to the TPS signal and sensor ground circuits.
With the DRBIII , check the EATX EVENT DATA to help identify the conditions in which the DTC was set.
Were there any problems found?

Yes : Repair as necessary.
Perform 40/41TE (NGC) TRANSMISSION VERIFICATION TESTS - VER 1.
No : Test Complete.
