If there's "kibble" moving around in the differential it might change the feel in the steering. Try putting the truck in 4wd and jack up both front wheels. When turning one wheel the other side...

That's a lot of wiring/sensor related codes. A couple of ideas:
- Wiring harness got damaged
- Grounds missing

Does it feel stiff when standing still in 4wd ? My WAG would be your front differential is locked up for some reason which makes it extremely hard to turn. In 2wd with the axle disconnect you...

That throws me for a loop... The TPS on these is very simple, just a potentiometer that acts as a voltage divider. The observation "KOEO voltage to #2 wire is 4.6V and drops to 1.5V at WOT" would...

You could also just have measured between pin 1 and pin 3 directly, not between battery and the pins. In any case it confirms that the wires are crossed. You have 5V to ground at pin 1 which is the...

You already did all the troubleshooting. The TPS sends wrong information to the PCM which is what keeps the idle high. When the TPS is unplugged the PCM sees 0V which it interprets as throttle...

That would be quite some current to see so much voltage drop but one test would be to disconnect the transmission wiring harness and start the engine to check the voltages. Don't try to drive unless...

Start with the wiring they did when installing the radio, specifically the wire that carries the dimmed output from the dash illumination. Should be a 22g orange wire if I read the diagram correctly.

Are you reading the code with a diag tool/code reader or via the "key dance" ? Might be a sw issue in the scan tool.

Eric O. voice: "There's your problem lady !" The left side low beam filament doesn't get connected to ground, likely because of some wiring issue. There is a "joint connector" which connects wires...
