Accelerator connecting rod & TPS

Asked by Jun 06, 2016 at 12:13 PM about the 1996 Nissan Altima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi so my accelerator connecting rod completely
broke the other day while I was driving. Floppy
pedal and all, no acceleration whatsoever. My
question is could this throw a TPS code? My theory
is that it was on the brink of breaking for a while
because my acceleration at times was kind of off. I  
replaced the rod and everything is fine again.
Thanks in advance for your help

Sorry forgot to mention that the MIL came on a couple of weeks ago
