Quickly clears heavy snow and throws it 40% farther, making snow removal easy. Reading around it could also be the Accelerator position sensor? These sensors are supplied with a reference voltage typically 5-volts and a ground signal. I have also seen on supercharged cars the extension harness has issues with the pins and you loose the signal on one of the tps signals. What I finally did was I removed the electric connector to the throttle body and sprayed it very liberally with a drying agent available in any auto parts store. All I had to do was remove the kick plate and dry out the sensor located there. Do they go bad after awhile. Just wondering if anybody else was getting the same P2138 code and what was the fix.
Disconnecting a sensor on the shared 5-volt reference circuit may isolate a shorted sensor. I did this 6 or 8 times sure enought I would get p2138 code when I check for codes and I did clear them before I did the wiggle test again. If I am late to work due to the fact that my car is not accelerating properly or stalling on the side of the road, I am not going to be very happy. Then dry out the connector, apply dielectric grease and reseat the connector. I haven't had time to find my leak yet but my car has not gone into limp mode since. The guy gave me the P.
One reads 0-5 and the other basically reads 5-0. If no discrepancies are detected, use the to test the sensors individually. Damage to the control module may occur due to excessive current draw. YourMechanic offers certified mobile mechanics who will come to your home or office to diagnose and repair your vehicle. Open the blue connector and open it up. They will also check the top cover of the throttle body for cracks or warping. While randomly driving about a month ago, the service traction control light came on directly followed by engine power reduced.
Did you complete the replacement? Refer to and in Wiring Systems. It didn't work on my test drive I was getting p2138 every 10 seconds, as fast as I could clear it I would get the code again. Once this happens the car acceleration drops and I need to turn off the engine then restart. Dual-trigger steering releases the left or right wheel to help make tight turns at the end of a driveway or pathway. Rate the quality of this post and help banban73 reputation points. Yes the white car had it and it resolved itself. With that said, I would recommend to anyone that has a P2138 trouble code stored to have the issue handled immediately.
For a more rapid data response, narrow the data stream to display only pertinent data. Click the reputation button near the bottom left corner of this message box.

The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table. Is the amperage more than the specified value? All of the necessary airflow tables have been changed If you have another throttle body try swapping it. One reads 0-5 and the other basically reads 5-0.
This way, I knew the metal was completely free of any moisture and that the silicone would impede any further moisture from entering. In this mode, engine acceleration will be severely limited if not disabled. In most cases, there are additional codes that accompany P2138, and a loss of control of throttle can be dangerous. The computer then sends a voltage signal in response to the electric motor to open the throttle plate. ©, 2015 Rick Muscoplat Save. There are 2 pedal position signals in the sensor. It's a large grey box with about 20 pins.
As I drive the check eng. Of course, it could also be just a dirty corroded contact somewhere. I tried to help, but when I asked if he checked for spark, he looked at me like I was an alien that had just beamed down and was speaking something in an alien language- or perhaps just German. When they deviate for two seconds, then the P2138 code will register, while simultaneously activating the Check Engine light.

Do not ever try to manually open the butterfly valve in an electronic throttle body with your hand or any other tool. Another week went by and it did it again, was told to clean the wires that link with the throttle body position sensor, cleaned those and walla worked perfect again. Taking this into consideration, it is always important to fully test every aspect of a circuit to diagnose an electrical problem correctly. Another body out there have to change their connector out that plugs into the peddle sensor. I'd start my trouble shooting that way.
I haven't been on the site in a long time and then stumbled on this. You are again looking for glitches in voltage as the throttle is actuated slowly from the closed position to wide open throttle. . Any more advise would be greatly welcomed. Click the reputation button near the bottom left corner of this message box. I hate buying something just for the sake of it. Cleaned it out and car worked perfect.
A week goes by and ran into the same problem. Click the reputation button near the bottom left corner of this message box. It is always best to use safe and cautious practices when working with electrical equipment. Is the voltage within the specified range? Specifications on the definition, troubleshooting, and repairs, of course, vary from one make and model to another. Sometimes this corrects and I am able to drive, but other times both lights come on and I cannot accelerate? The voltage must be within the specifications set by the manufacturer. Then clear the trouble codes and check for proper operation.
