2003 mazda 6s code P2135 throttle position sensor

I had this code come up the other day. The car seems to run fine... just have the check engine light on. I washed the engine bay the other day, could this have caused the problem. Any other ideas? I do not find any parts or help on line for this part swap. Do they go bad very often..? Thanks for the help.

    My car has the exact same problem. It started out with just the check engine light on (not even constant, sometimes off and on) and now it's solid. It's also causing problems now. My car will lock me out. The panel will light up with all sorts of warnings, traction control, air bag, etc. I can't accelerate when this happens and my car slowly decelerates. I have to pull over, and when I do, my car starts to rev the rpms up and down from 1.25 to 1.5 rpms rapidly. I turn the car off, wait 10 seconds, and start it again, and it's fine. But now the problem's occurring more regularly. I have no fix at this time, other than to replace the TP sensor (my next step) but I just wanted to tell you to beware. Your situation sounds very similar to mine, and will probably go down the same path. I just wanted you to be aware of it.

    I just got the problem fixed by the dealer. It was the same exact thing as mentioned. They said if you don't end up fixing it will cause more problems to the injectors. It was expensive to get the TP sensor change but it was a must. Good luck!

    I had the same problem as rabitfoot -happened once, but was very scary given I was driving 75mph on the freeway. The car was ok after shutoff and restart. My check-eng lite had been on and my mechanica ran the diagnostic and found the issue to be the throttle pedal control sensor. he said I should be ok driving and I was for about week until this happened. So I now have it in to replace the throttle control sensor (Full kit) as well as get my 60k transmission flush, pwr steering flush and and change the spark plugs. Until this time, I had done none of that. the total bill will be over $800 (I think the throttle control fix is around $500-600 alone).

You can change the tps alone. You do not have to change the entire throttle body. It shouldn't be riveted in place, it should have screws or bolts on one side or the other. If it's riveted in place, use a dremmel and grind the rivets off. You can replace rivets with screws on the new unit.

Engine light came out and give me the code P2135


P2135 FORD Description

Electric throttle control actuator consists of throttle control motor, throttle position sensor, etc. The throttle position sensor responds to the throttle valve movement.


The throttle position sensor has the two sensors. These sensors are a kind of potentiometers which transform the throttle valve position into output voltage, and emit the voltage signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM). In addition, these sensors detect the opening and closing speed of the throttle valve and feed the voltage signals to the ECM. The ECM judges the current opening angle of the throttle valve from these signals and the ECM controls the throttle control motor to make the throttle valve opening angle properly in response to driving condition

The reduce engine light comes on at 50 mph what could the problem be


DTC P0120 P0220 P1516 P2135 these should be the problem codes.
2003-2006 Chevrolet Avalanche, Corvette, Express, Monte Carlo, Silverado, SSR, Suburban, Tahoe, Trailblazer. for reduced engine power. p0120 is throttle position sensor, ( tps ). p0220 is relates to tps, p1516 tps is out of range. p2135 is a throttle body code, the throttle body needs replaced. but before you do it replace tps first to see if it takes care of the other codes. have a good day !!

Code p2135


Welcome to Fixya

The code you give is for a throttle position sensor (TPS), and its voltage is incorrect. This can be a loose connection at the sensor or a the sensor needs cleaning. Clean the throttle body by spraying cleaner on a rag and wipping down, even a little bit of dirt will affect your performance. Due to the construction of this style of throttle body it is highly recomended to not spray with cleaner, just wipe down.

Thank you for using Fixya

Check engine light on 2 error codes P0172 P2135


P0172 - System Too Rich (Bank 1)

Essentially this DTC means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a rich condition (too little oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1.

Possible solutions will be as follows:

A.Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
B.Clean the MAF sensor. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
C.Inspect fuel lines for cracks, leaks, or pinches
D.Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail
E.Check the fuel injectors, they may be dirty. Use fuel injector cleaner or get them professionally cleaned/replaced.
F.Check for an exhaust leak before the first oxygen sensor (this is unlikely to cause the problem, but it is possible)

P2135 - Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch "A"/"B" Voltage Correlation

This code is in reference to the actual throttle body on this vehicle. You will nee dot replace the entire throttle body to correct this fault. This can actually be fixed for free if the vehicle is still in warranty. There is a service bulletin that pertains to the diagnostic trouble with the throttle body for this particular vehicle. GM Engineering has determined that the throttle body may intermittently cause the setting of DTC P2135, but tests fine during diagnosis.

P2135 is a throttle position code. If it is popping through the intake that is an indication that it is lean ( not enough fuel) I would risk the cost of a Throttle position sensor and replace it.

P2176=Throttle Actuator Control System - Idle Position Not Learned
Did you use all you old sensors,or is some of them from the new engine,I would swap out the IAC sensor or check for wires not hooked up.
If it can't relearn to idle the Idle air control might be different then your old one,but its not registering with the computer
