Is the TPS switch adjustable on your vehicle some of them are ? Also try removing positive battery terminal for 10 seconds then reinstall that may reset the computer.

Thanks for the responses. I tried removing the positive battery cable and it still does the still idles high so I think it may be something else that is wrong.
