It would be worthwhile to get the correct workshop manual for your car model. There you will find all the info you need to locate the key electrical components and the colir codeof the wires of the circuit you'll work on.

Just to help you along, the throttle pedal position sensor is found near or at the pivot point of the accelerator pedal. This tells the ecu how deep you have pressed the pedal. This is not the throttle position sensor which is in the rngine compartment where the throttle plate is.
