Do me a favor pull the error codes using a OBDII code reader and report back the error codes. Yeah I know there is a key trick too but sometimes it doesn't work with 2001 model trucks.

Actually on the Dodge Cummins its called a APPS Sensor... (Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor).

But actually I think for the OP problem its going to maybe the trans relay in the PDC (Power Distribution Center) but thats a wild guess... Error codes will be more helpful in finding the problem.

Oh TPS stands for throttle.       An uncle had one of his go in his relatively new truck halfway between Toronto and Winnipeg in the middle of nowhere north of Lake Superior somewhere.    He had to wait quite a few hours for one to be delivered to the repair guy.   And the nearest repair guy was probably a few hours drive away too.
