Being it's most likely SPFI (there were a few '90 turbo Loyale's - including the RS), you should run a D-Check to determine if there are any codes present.

The green connector(test mode) is under the hood near the driver's side strut tower and was connected. This caused the check engine light to come on. I have since disconnected it. But I cannot find the black connectors. I was under the dash, laying on the floor with my head on the brake pedal for 45 minutes with no luck.

Carefully pry off the TPS, use a razor to cut the glue and remove the plastic top cover, clean with a Q-tip and carb or MAF cleaner all over the circuit board, especially the "track" that the "feet" rub on. Put the cover back on, dab a tiny bit of epoxy (or similar) on the four corners where the top and bottom cover meet.
Put back on car, leave the bottom screw off if you want, adjust to specs,
