Sounds like a TPS issue. The TPS rheostat is at the top of the pedal, maybe check the plug there?

This could be the TPS itself, or related to the tiny wires going to the OD button, at the end of the Shift Selector, chafing through and shorting (this often accompanies all the gauges dropping to "0").
