Jake : Hi there
Jake : so the engine will not rev at all?
Jake : not even in park?
Jake : This code is generally caused by a faulty throttle position switch that's part of the throttle chamber .
Jake : not usually caused by the APP sensor
Jake : Lots of people just try changing the pedal first because it's generally inexpensive and can be the cause of the code
Jake : but in general it rarely is at fault for this error code
Jake : So replace the actual throttle chamber and you should be good
