Default cleaned the throttle body and now code 22

Well today I cleaned out the throttle body (was black and gummy) and when I put everything back on and started the car up, there was the SES light on. I pulled the codes and I now have code 22 TPS low voltage. My question is should I bother trying to adjust it or should I replace the sensor? Keeping in mind that this is a 14 year old car that wasnt kept up very well by my father (yes its a hand-me-down) Im thinking that I should just keep going with replacing things as they go bad when I have the money.

Thanks for any input yall can give me

I'd adjust the TPS a little. Keep in mind, a little goes a long way. There is a procedure in Techinfo.
