no acceleration only idle

My 1999 just idles now when I push on the acceleration pedal. I was driving down the road & it just started doing this & the check engine light came on, but then went off. The truck goes in forward & reverse but it only idles. The truck starts fine & idles fine.

TPS

Being you have a 99, all you need is the TPS sensor, Located on the go pedal assy. Make sure first, if you have an auto, to check the fuses. If a fuse is popped, and i can not remember which one, you might have the "shaved wire under the steering column" going on.
