Throttle issues, connector locations?

So I have been having strange throttle issues and finally hooked my scanner up. What I discovered, among other things, is that the TPS will send sudden "spiked" input to the ECU. For example, throttle at 15% with no change in pedal position, signal jumps to 32% for 1/2 second or less.

My question is: before I replace the accelerator pedal assembly I want to check all the connections. Besides the obvious one at the pedal, what other connections are there and WHERE are they?
