It means the throttle position sensor is a fault, but can also mean that the truck is in limp mode due to the problem you are having with the truck. The system is trying to protect the engine. Since the CEL is also on, that means there are codes stored, have the truck scanned, that might help determine the ultimate issue. Don't continue to start and drive it. Have it towed to your garage/mechanic for diagnostic work.
