SOURCE: where is the throttle position sensor on a 2007

on a 2006 it is on the throttle body at the throttle plate. There are actually three TPS sensors in this configuration. One attached to the gas pedal. One attached to the throtle body And, one located inside the top of the engine block. The defective TPS sensor is removable with four screws. American Suzuki has to be a pain in the *** by selling it only as part of the entire throttle body.

SOURCE: how to change a throttle position sensor on a 2007 yukon xl

There are only two screws on most TPS Sensors

Either a T20 Torx head or a small Hex & of coarse
the wire connector

A Code for that or any sensor, doesn't mean or tell you
to replace it.
Codes are used along with reference material & diagnostic
charts,to decide what & how to test things

Nothing ever gets replaced, that is not understood or
has not failed a test

To do so otherwise, is the Push & Poke,Wish & Hope
Diagnostic theory, of throwing parts at something,thus
learning nothing.

You may have to use a hair dryer to soften the threadlocker on the screws

Why won't it go past 20 mph and idles at 3000 rpm?

It may need reflashing/reprogramming with the new components . Have you checked for vacuum leaks ?

Gm code p2120

Code p2120 is accelerator pedal position sensor APP sensor 1 circuit apparently this is known as the reduced engine power syndrome and is quite common on the avalanche. There is no mechanical linkage from gas pedal to throttle body and it is quite common for the throttle position sensor located on throttle body to mess up and throw this code and also for one of the wires to the throttle position sensor to get hot become brittle and sometimes break. I would start there

Stabilitrak service comes on and i lose power. could this be the body modularsensor or throttle body sensor.

If you have a cable throttle then not likely, if you look at your throttle body and it is electronic then it could be the throttle body position sensor or possibly the accelerator pedal sensor. Are the any DTC codes present on your truck (check engine lights) cause both of these issues have sensors the will most likely trigger a code light on the dash. If not light comes on I would have it scanned just to make sure it doesn't have any codes stored in memory

My 2003 avalanche keeps going into reduce engine mode the codes say its the TPS/pedal position sensor where are they located

this is most likely a throttle body issue. accelerator pedal has position sensors on it but these trucks had some issues with the electric throttle body and harness plugging into it

My 2003 avalanche won't stay running..even when i'm driving and slow down for a stop sign it stalls. would appreciate some assistance. thanks

First take mass air flow sensor off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and reinstall it and see if that helps.Then if that did'nt help check the fuel pressure because low fuel pressure will do this, make sure its within the specs which is 55-60 psi with key on and engine off.Also there are several sensors that will cause this to like crank sensor, throttle position sensor.

The engine light comes on and the reduced power is activated ,there sensors were tripped all to do with the throttle . the auto shop ended up replacing the throttle body and the problem just happend again...

I'd bring it back to the shop that put in the throttle body and have them check to see if the replacement was defective or failed. If not, you may have a bad throttle position sensor [part of the gas pedal] I'm assuming it worked fine for a while after the repairs with no problems then suddenly started acting up again. I've replaced a bunch of throttle bodies but only one position sensor so far. There's always the chance that there's a bad wire somplace or some other more exotic problem but I'll bet you'll find it at either the sensor or throttle body. Good luck, hope this helps!

I have codes p2135 p1295 p2106 can you tell me what they are for

these codes have to do with the corralation between the pedal and the throttle sensor module on the engine. You will need to get it doagnosed to find out what is wrong since the usual culprit cost several hundred dollars.
