The TPS sensor is integral to the throttle body & not available separately. What was the actual code number?

This. And also autozone employee's job is to sell you parts not perform diagnostics. They'll sell you wheel lug nuts if they can get you to believe it'll fix a TPS code.

Lima... where the men outnumber the women and the women outweigh the men.

Agreed. Take any advice you get from a store clerk with a huge grain of salt. It's the actual code/s itself that's important.
