90mm TB Throwing Codes - Troubleshoot, Fix, or Replace?

I have a 90mm throttle body that came from Arrington years ago (5-6yrs) and it's now causing my dash to light up and throwing codes galore. Most of the codes don't seem to have a whole lot of info with them other than it doesn't appear the TB is communicating with the PCM. Admittedly, I haven't kept up with this stuff as much over the past couple of years but it appears even Arrington has changed up their throttle body lineup. Doesn't surprise me because even mine had issues brand new out of the box and went back for repairs. 

The codes I'm getting:

  • P2135 - Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch
  • P0221 - Throttle/Pedal Position Switch B Circuit
  • P0222 - Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor B Circuit
  • P0121 - Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor A Circuit

The cluster lights I have are the lightning bolt for Electronic Throttle Control and the general check engine light. 

Is this something I troubleshoot? By troubleshoot, I likely mean have a local shop take a look for better diagnostic than I'm able to do. Do I call Arrington to see if I can send it back and have it "refurbished"? Lord knows how long that may take if possible. Do I buy a new one for $500, slap it on, and hope it ales all my problems?

Ive heard some disturbing info about the new owner of Arrington and warranty, sad really.

So I had heard ( limited too, but fairly reliable source ) the new owner said during an interview he would honor Arrington warranties for motors that qualified. But with that said it was told three customers ar trying to have warranty work done and the new owner is telling them sorry but Arrington no longer exists and they aren’t responsible for the warranty liability, basically refusing honoring warranty. There may be reasons for the claim denial.

I hope Ive been misinformed, really would suck to be one of those customers. So from my understanding, the northern company purchased the name, inventory and website. Everything else was sold or auctioned off and there is no work being performed in the old location or under the Arrington name. Shop Hemi is still running, and I checked, motors are still being sold via the site. Now I only followed through a motor order to a point through the website to see if it would stop the transaction, which is limited, but appears you can still purchase an “Arrington” build. Wonder what happended with all that equipment, lots of nice ( and expensive) stuff in that warehouse!!! 

Id love to know what the story is, if “Arrington” motors will still be an option or not. I already have a shortblock in the works, so I don’t need them, but I still hate to see them roll out. It’s just less Mopar enthusiasts have as an option, we definitely don’t need less. Especially now, as it was seeming the aftermarket was starting to show some interest in Mopar products, don’t want that to slow but rather increase.

I still see Arrington parts available on their web site.  Are they still offering parts or are these phantom pages that have just not been taken down yet?
