Computer reset, as you said, so it does have to "learn" again, which can take some time - and the car will "limp" around for a while (mine always likes to stall). I would clear the codes first, clean out the throttle body, drive the car around a bit, and see if it throws them again.

If it keeps throwing codes, then look at the throttle position sensor (before replacing the entire throttle body). Good luck.

Already tried doing all of that but it seems to not want to respond... or relearn... So i tried something... I while the engine is running i pulled to plug for the throttle body sensor and after that the throttle started responding but not quite... so i'm going to try to replace just the tps cause i don't want to buy the whole thing and see if that works.

P0120,0125,1235 or somethin like that... kinda late to be checking and got work tomorrow but those are the codes that pops up, i might have to change the tps.... but like i said though while the engine was running... i unplug the tps and the engine rammed up... idk if it is the tps or the whole throttle body... it could even be that i have low gas hahaha. I mean before my battery died, everything and i mean everything was working perfectly, then i accidently unplugged the whole battery without keeping it alive.... so i bought a new battery and all this crap happens... a wrench light/engine like... so all this code i got is mostly from the throttle body though...
