Hi there:DTC P1779 - Engine Torque Delivered to TCM Signal
Engine torque signal below lower limit delivered to TCM. I've read these occur when there is a communication problem between ECM and TCM (Transmission Control Module).
DTC P1791 - Transmission Control Module LoopThe P1779 and P1791 codes set as a result of the other DTC (P0128). When the ECM sets certain trouble codes, these codes will set in the TCM (Transmission Control Module). The TCM will also increase tranmission pressures, which results in the harsh shifting.


DTC P0123 - Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch "A" Circuit HighTP sensor signal circuit is shorted to sensor ground. TP sensor signal circuit is open (except 1996-1998 models). TP sensor VREF circuit is open between sensor and PCM. TP sensor is damaged or it failed (it may be shorted).


DTC P0222 - Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch "B" Circuit LowThe Throttle control module contains two throttle position (TP) sensors with a common 5 volt supply, a common ground, and two independent signal circuits that vary resistance according to changes in throttle plate position. The ECM measures the signal voltage from each TP sensor, which is a reduced value of the ECM 5 volt reference. As the throttle plate opens from 0% throttle to wide open throttle, the voltage on the TP sensor 1 signal increases from 0.6 (+/-0.2) volts to 4.3 (+/-0.2) volts, while the voltage on the TP sensor 2 signal decreases from 4.4 (+/-0.2) volts to 0.76 (+/-0.2) volts.

If both P0122 and P0222 are set, circuit 486 may be either open or shorted to ground.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
