This P0510 code commonly refers to a defective throttle positioner sensor but a quick way to check this is to verify the tps wiring connections. Look for any wire that seems to be to close to a metal or unprotected. A shorted tps wire can interfere with the tps signal and can cause this code.

Sometimes, it is a good idea to check the ground wire also and see if it shares a ground with the coolant sensor. If it is, check also the integrity of the coolant sensor and if possible replace it. ATS can provide your tps wiring diagram if you are a member.
