Suddenly no throttle response

I fired up the truck this morning so I could start plowing out from the 2' of snow we got last night. After one swipe with the plow, suddenly there is no throttle response. I am having a hard time finding good info on the TPS and its location. All help is appreciated. We have no power, and trees down blocking our road, I need my truck back asap. Thanks.

I've had that happen on one of my 95f250 PS. Look under the dash above the throttle petal. Some times a wire or plug-in can come undone due to a boot laden hoof slipping and hitting it. I hope this helps,time for spring,this snow stuff is getting old.Good luck.

Thanks for the reply. I pulled the TPS off and have a new one coming tomorrow. Hopefully that does the trick.

there is a metal tab on the pedal also, if it gets bent and doesn't make contact with the switch you won't have throttle, might check that out too. it's a fail safe so the motor can't run away.
