Default 92 Geo Tracker Won't Run without pressing Gas

hello all, my friend has a 92 Geo tracker 1.6L that won't run at all unless you press the gas pedal the whole time any ideas on what this could be? I have replaced spark plugs wire, distributor and cap.

Thanks

It won't idle, if you drive it down the road and take foot of gas it will die. It will start and drive but you have to have gas pedal pressed the whole time its an automatic but you have to use both feet, lol

Won't stay running w/o gas pressed... hmm I would buy a NOID and backprobe to see if fuel is being sprayed w/ no throttle (requires a helper to test unless you can get it in the dash under windshield to see it. Otherwise its something with the IAC or anything that jtgh can come up with. Wonder if the dashpot retracts?

TPS IDLE SWITCH IS NOT CLOSED AT IDLE
CALIBRATE IT.
(if it wont close below 300 ohms the tps is bad)

TPS testing

ISC IDLE softare is turned off , if switch is open.
