2005 WK 4.7 CEL P0068, Srvc Elec Brk Sys, Traction Control

OK ladies and gents, this might be a little long winded, but here is my issue.

2005 GC 4.7, 157k. About a month ago, my WK threw a P0068, Service Electrical Brake System, and Traction Control. Starting is a little hard(takes a few seconds), erratic idle(sometimes), and will downshift randomly. As well as MPG dropping.

I have replaced the TPS for this issue previously, which helped for a month or two(no issues, all lights went out, and she was running like a charm). Then everything started happening again.

I have taken the TPS off and reseated, but this did not help. Could the TPS have gone bad that quickly? Or is it another issue? Skimming the forums I have seen EGR/TPS/etc. What would y'alls next step be? I am not a mechanic or really mechanically inclined, but I can read and watch videos to help me fix this issue as long as it is not overly complicated.

Thanks for any help!

First off I would unplug the negative battery cable for a while than reconnect, to reset the computer, than I would take it for a ride see if it comes back sometimes with these jeeps its an electrical gremlin that will get cleared up with a reset of the computer. Good luck!
