p0122 is for the throttle position sensor on throttle body, check for broken wires to the sensor and try cleaning the throttle body.

That's what we did, and still nothing, the lights are and cel. But I'm seeing different things when I look up the code, so should I just order a new throttle body or change a sensor?
