    yes also the crank sensor will also keep it from starting, now did the mechanic install this tps for you ,and when it was installed was a ohm meter used to adjust the tps to the proper ohm 's,the reason i am asking this I would think that if the tps wasn't adjusted correctly then it is not gonna perform right, but hey I am no longer working on vehicles so maybe you should check in to this a little bit farther and get a second opinion, but it makes sense because all these sensors are monitored through the computer,and i do remember a few tps sensors that i installed had to be calibrated with my snap-on scanner and if I remember correctly the ohm's were around 8 ohm's
