Help with Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor

Hi Guys,
I had to replace the intake heater relay on my 01 2500 Diesel (24 valve) the other day, and when we cleared the code, another pulled up. This time it's the Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch B Circuit Low Input. The code reads out,PO222 but I found that it is really PO2122. Reading the threads on this subject, I see it's an APPS rather than aTPPS.
How do I determine if it is the sensor, or the connection?
Could I have fouled the connection while I was rooting around with the intake relay?
BTW, the truck seems to be running just fine, but the engine light is still on.
Any information you all can give will be appreciated.
Thanks
Have fun
Rufus

Quick, order your Timbo APPS now and keep it until you need it or just change it out now, it will save you a bundle of money and a lot of hassle.

On an 01 with 115K you are probably due for a new APPS. I put a timbo on mine back then and its a non issue.

I didn't have a code, just an odd miss at any steady speed....
