No... not serious. Wiring to the TPS is either bad or the TPS itself is bad.

sometimes cleaning the sensor, or reseating the TPS sensor will correct it. could be the wiring or actual sensor, clean everything first and see what happens

the sensor is most likely not the problem or the wiring

122 is back, and now it idles rough, and it does not shift in time to higher gear, sometimes I would be doing 60 with the gear obviously in 3rd, RMP at +3k then it would finally shift up, same with 1st, sometimes it wont go into 2nd in time until I get it moving much faster.

When idling it will jump between 700 to 1500, when I am in Neutral it is just about 1k, I just hit the window switches all four and it really struggles and drops to 700. This could be related to Battery as well as P0122?

Richre1, where is that evap system box? This is bothering me a bit now. It just comes and goes, maybe every 1 month or so for few days.

Bump.
It comes and goes, sometimes after hard accelleration, sometimes just while cruising, not connected to anything specific. Light would be off for 2 weeks and can come back for 2-3 days, then go out again. How do I exactly fix this?

You can test for the correct voltages for the TPS, that information is here in the forum, I posted it for someone else who had to replace their TPS. Someone should make a post with all this information in it, and sticky it in the correct section.

Just get over it and replace the TPS,99% of the time a TPS code is a bad TPS.
