which sensor is it? If its the throttle position sensor (TPS) you can drill the rivets holding the TPS to the throttle body off and screw on another (used) TPS.
Or just buy another used throttle body with working sensors. Can probably pick one up pretty cheap too.

Are you certain it's the sensor and not a wiring issue?
Did you check to see that there was a good 5V reference, good ground and a good signal back to the ECU?

yeah check continuity (spelling??) to the ecu. Your TPS and MAP sensors don't normally go for no reason. You may just be out of calibration.
