I would not sell this vehicle because the new vehicles have transmission and engine issues. After taking it to the dealer for the third time, he replaced the entire throttle body as well as a post catalytic exhaust sensor. Before shutting off hooked up scan tool and tac to pcm serial bus circuit code I can't remember P code number I'm getting old. Could that have anything to do with it? I hope never have to revisit this agonizing experience and 9 months of frustrations. This happens way too much to hard working people who go there for help and they drain you of every last penny you have and still have same problem. I have to pull over, shut it off, wait few seconds then restart it.
Four occurrences in the last 3000 miles; very annoying. If there is damage to the wiring to the point of bare wires touching the frame or to a ground bare metal spot on the vehicle , replace the sensor, which usually means replacing the throttle body. Any way long story short i fixed it myself in 2 hours and it hasnt missed a beat. A mechanic may begin diagnosing this trouble code by removing anything necessary to access the throttle body, throttle position sensor, and throttle body control module. My scan tool was plugged in and it does apparently monitor some of the inputs. Thanks for listening to me and hope that this may help someone.
It can be located on the throttle body or on the accelerator pedal inside the vehicle. This includes using your hands or any other tool to open the throttle body by force. Also it dose need to be fixed, because there will be a lose of power, and it could cause other problems. Once the voltage is above. Enter the 5 character trouble codes in the search box and submit the search. Wiggle test the individual throttle body circuits to see if the concern can be duplicated. I realize it is a safety issue.
Find an out source with the same equiptment. The wires are all to small for the circuit. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Wiggle testing may also induce a trouble code to set. The cold weather is pretty hard on our cars but problems usually don't occur until it gets to about -25 below. In these instances, P1516 will set when the voltage being returned by the sensor does not match what is being received by the actual throttle position sensor or in some cases, it may be a calculated throttle position. And for diagnosis, the technician will examine the system first to accurately diagnose the code and make the appropriate fix, which of course, depends on the specific problem that caused the code.
I did the pin point test for the code and actually found that someone had broken the lock tab for the connector from the tac to the throttle body off the tac module itself. I am so upset that i have bought 3 vehicles from same dealer and this is how they treat me. This eliminates the need for a mechanical cable attachment that would run from the accelerator pedal to the throttle body. Will keep an eye on this and update if anything changes. There may be some good ones out there but after 30 years havent seen any so far. Specification of the definition, troubleshooting, and repairs still vary from one make and model to another.
Going back into dealer going to check and clean grounds. Will let you know how i make out. Additional comments regarding the P2108 code Never try to open an electronic throttle body manually. Same problem with my03 6. I don't know for sure.
They both went into biz together. Long story short I believe in fixing things, not find and replace. Truck runs fine - no codes. ?? Now it is reporting P1516 and sometimes P1515 throttle position related , and it is enforcing the Reduced Power mode. You can then go to an auto parts website or one that is local and give them the information about your car and they can then give you the right part.
Over the last two months I have had anywhere from one to three instances of the reduced engine power always in the morning when my lights were on. He did do one thing that was good he re-pinned connector going into the throttle body. And after reading the post here I learned it could be a wire problem. . Two really good guys with a passion for trucks.
How does a mechanic diagnose the P2108 code? I found that stopped at a traffic light foot off accelerator this number would bounce as much as 3%. I have new battery with new main cable. It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Also, make sure that the throttle plate is free and easy to move. But feel like setting it on fire if i can't solve this problem.
