As you have already replaced the TPS you need to measure the reference voltage to the sensor, it should be very close to 5 volts with key on engine off. If it is not that voltage then you need to trace out the circuit. If the voltage is 5 then check the sensor ground for a good connection. To go much further you really need a code reader that has "live data" streaming so you can see the sensors operation.
