Throttle position sensor

My son just bought a 2000 CX 70 ( I think thatís the model type). We took it to oreileys today to get the error codes since it wants to stall and not accelerate. P0121 code popped up....throttle position sensor. Reading the symptoms it sounds like the problem. Question is, itís an inexpensive part but how do we replace it? Is it a hard job? Are there any instructions out there for this?

Recent Alternator Replacement?

I had a similar throttle problem with my 2006 V50 after replacing the alternator. When the electrical system is off for a while, a specific drive cycle is needed for the Engine Control Module to "re-learn" the correct settings.
