TPS reset what is this?

Hey all I'm having futher issues now since converting to MPFI.
The car starts and idles ok but after reving it stays at the higher revs (max is 2000) then it slowly falls back down.
obviously it's something to do with the ISC staying on so I'm gonna give that a good clean tonight incase it's sticking.

I read something before about a TPS reset. How is this done and could this fix my problem?
If all else fails I'll grab another TPS unit
Cheers all.

I was having the same dramas as you yesterday, but it turns out my accelerator spring is fairly ordinary, ive used a rubber spacer to put tension on it at the moment but will replace the spring soon, worth having a look at

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

I thought about that and checked it out last night but mine seams to return ok. I'm sure its something sticking or a stuffed sensor. Does't worry me to much though , 3 months warrenty on all the stuff from the wreakers.
