Don't run it unhooked and its probably not bad just out of adjustment. There are three wires coming off the tps ground, power, and signal. You can check the signal voltage and make sure that it is around .99 Volts at idle. If its out of adjustment and reading higher than 1 Volt it can cause the higher idle as you described.
