Default engine light....

no. the engine light is not on
the abs brake is, but thats cause i disconnected the sensors at the wheel assembly a while ago... I hate abs. Mine were especially touchy and prone to activate on dry pavement. but that doesnt matter for this discussion.
but yeah, no engine light...

could it be a possible bad throttle position sensor? The sensor could have a "dead spot" on it.

Default throttle position...

It could be the throttle position sensor.
if so, how could i check that? aside from purchasing a new one?

you would want to hook up a multimeter to check the voltage as you move the throttle by hand. If it'* inconsitant or drops or increases significantly with a small ammount of movement the sensor is bad. I do not remember which wires to hook the meter up to but another member should chime in with the correct procedure. I'd look it up on a search here but I have to get ready for work-sorry!
