Default Throttle position sensor

My 96 Tacoma 2RZ-FE showed a code P0510 "Throttle Position Switch
Closed". Is this the same as the Throttle position sensor? If so where
is the cheapest place to buy a replacement, and is it very hard to replace?
Thanks,
Howard

It is probably referring to the idle position switch which is part of
the TPS usually. That switch is suppose to close when no throttle is
applied. You should be able to check that if you have the wiring
diagram for that TPS. It also may be due to a misadjustment of the TPS
or a short somewhere.
