Your "transmission high input sensor" is also known as a "neutral safety switch". It depends on you trans (auto, or standard) as to the location. Either way, it's a simple and inexpensive repair.

SOURCE: Code: P0133 - O2 Sensor Circuit Slow Response Bank 1 Sensor 1

is this a 4 or 6 cylinder?
if a 4 cylinder it will only have 2 o2 sensors
V6 will have 4 o2 senors which the sensor will be the right side of the engine first sensor.
1st sensor on exhaust, I recommend if you change one change all, as this will make the computer when it rechecks the system you have all clean/fast responding sensors.

if you have a slow response it means the sensor is dirty and not reading well, which is usually caused by minor misfires that the engine computer dismisses, so a tune up would be recommended too.

SOURCE: coolant sensor on a saturn, can you show location?

well there are 2 coolant sensors,,,one is the coolant level sensor which is internal to the coolant resivor,,but i think you are talking about the infamous engine coolant temp sensor,,,,ok pop your hood you will see the cam cover that says saturn on it,,,,thats the top of the engine,,,ok,,,then on the lower right side of that you will see the upper radiator hose,,,and the EGR valve,,,,now inbetween the egr valve and upper rad hose is where the coolant temp sensor is,, its just below them,,there is a little wiring harness with a yellow and a black wire going to it,,,,it actually screws into the lower side of the cylinder head,,,,just squeze the wiring connector at the 2 thicker spots and pull it straight off then take the coolant cap off the resivor,,to relases pressure and put it back on,providing the car is not hot,,,,the sensor is actually a 13mm or 14mm socket that removes the sensor,,,,,they usually crack and leak into the harness so check the harness for corrosion,,,,be like green/blue on terminals,,if so youre gonna have to wire in a new connector,,,,no big deal ,, normal s-series issue,,,do not use aftermarket junk like autozone as these do not read correctly from the start youre gonna have to shell out the money at the saturn dealer for the good stuff ,,like $18 for the sensoe and $37 for the connector but it comes with the 2 **** connectors you need to wire it in,,,so if you remove the sensor just put the new one in snug but dont break it off,,,,top off coolant,,,,cut the 2 wires off the old connector as close to the end as possilbe. so you retain as much wire as you can,,,,,it doesnt matter which wire goes on what side but i lke to keep it the way it was the black wire on the right and the yellow on the left,,use the **** connectors,then heat shrink them and wrap them with electrical tape and youre done

I have a 2004 grand prix,sputters at 2000 rpm no engine light.w/ car off key on, press gas 5 times get codes 1125,2125. clear codes light goes out but still sputters. do i change accelerator and TPS?


.The control module provides the APP sensor a 5-volt reference circuit and a low reference circuit. The APP sensor then provides the control module a signal voltage proportional to pedal movement. The APP sensor 2 signal voltage is low at rest and increases as the pedal is depressed. When the control module detects that the APP sensor 2 signal or the APP sensor 5-volt reference voltage is outside the predetermined range, DTC P2125 sets.

The control module provides the APP sensors a 5-volt reference circuit and a low reference circuit. The APP sensors then provide the control module signal voltages proportional to pedal movement. The APP sensor 1 signal voltage is low at rest and increases as the pedal is depressed. The APP sensor 2 signal voltage is also low at rest and increases as the pedal is depressed. One APP sensor DTC will not cause the Reduced Engine Power message to be displayed. Two APP sensor DTCs for the same sensor also will not cause the Reduced Engine Power message to be displayed. However, if two or more DTCs are set involving more than one APP sensor, DTC P1125 will set.

I changed everything on a 2007 Chevy uplander the camshaft position sensor And the purged sensor And the throttle body and still the check engine light and the reduce engine power came back on


Reduced Engine Power Mode When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
?€¢
Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.


?€¢
Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.


?€¢
Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn OFF the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.


?€¢
Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:


-
Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned OFF


-
Ignore the accelerator pedal input


?€¢
Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
Did you have it checked for DTC's - diagnostic trouble code's related to the reduced engine power ?
All so has APP sensor gas pedal !
Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor
The accelerator pedal contains 2 individual accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors within the assembly. The APP sensors 1 and 2 are potentiometer type sensors each with 3 circuits:
?€¢
A 5-volt reference circuit


?€¢
A low reference circuit


?€¢
A signal circuit

The APP sensors are used to determine the pedal angle. The engine control module (ECM) provides each APP sensor a 5-volt reference circuit and a low reference circuit. The APP sensors provide the ECM with signal voltage proportional to the pedal movement. The APP sensor 1 signal voltage at rest position is less than 1 volt and increases to more than 4 volts as the pedal is actuated. The APP sensor 2 signal voltage at rest position is less than 0.6 volt and increases to more than 2 volts as the pedal is actuated.
Your best bet is take your vehicle to the dealer !

First of all a scan tool is need for this not a code reader, you need to view scan data after you find what code is stored in the PCM. It could have a problem with the powertrain control module, wiring, or the Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensors. Here are a few codes that could set .

REDUCED POWER
Refer to:
• Powertrain Control Module Description for the 2.8L engine
• Powertrain Control Module Description for the 3.5L engine

Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System
Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Overview
The throttle actuator control (TAC) system uses vehicle electronics and components to calculate and control the position of the throttle blade. This eliminates the need for a mechanical cable attachment from the accelerator pedal to the throttle body. This system also performs the cruise control functions as well.
The TAC system components include, but are not limited to the following:
• The accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors
• The throttle body
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
Each of these components interface together to ensure accurate calculations and control of the throttle position.

Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor
The accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor is mounted on the accelerator pedal assembly. The APP is 2 individual APP sensors within one housing. There are 2 separate signal, low reference, and 5-volt reference circuits. APP sensor 1 voltage increases as the accelerator pedal is depressed. APP sensor 2 voltage decreases as the accelerator pedal is depressed.
Throttle Body Assembly
The throttle body for the throttle actuator control (TAC) system is similar to a conventional throttle body with several exceptions. One exception being the use of a motor to control the throttle position instead of a mechanical cable. Another exception is the throttle position (TP) sensor. The TP sensor is mounted in the throttle body assembly. The TP sensor is 2 individual TP sensors within the throttle body assembly. Two separate signals, low reference, and 5-volt reference circuits are used to connect the TP sensors and the powertrain control module (PCM). TP sensor 2 signal voltage increases as the throttle opens. TP sensor 1 signal voltage decreases as the throttle opens.

Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the PCM detects a problem with the throttle actuator control (TAC) system the PCM enters one of the following Reduced Engine Power Modes:
• Acceleration Limiting--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited Throttle Mode--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle Default Mode--The control module will turn OFF the throttle actuator.
• Forced Idle Mode--The control module will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning throttle position, or by controlling fuel and spark if throttle is turned OFF.
- Ignore accelerator pedal input.
• Engine Shutdown Mode--The control module will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

Have you had it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?

DTC P2176
The commanded throttle position (TP) is compared to the actual TP. Both values should be within a calibrated range of each other. The powertrain control module (PCM) continuously monitors the commanded and actual TPs. If the values are greater than the calibrated range, DTC P2176 sets.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DTC P2138
The accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors 1 and 2 are located within the accelerator pedal assembly. Each sensor has the following circuits:
• A 5-volt reference circuit
• A low reference circuit
• A signal circuit
This provides the powertrain control module (PCM) with a signal voltage proportional to accelerator pedal movement. The APP sensor 1 signal voltage at rest position is near the low reference and increases as the pedal is actuated. The APP sensor 2 signal voltage at rest position is near the 5-volt reference and decreases as the pedal is actuated.
DTC P2135
The throttle actuator control (TAC) assembly has 2 throttle position (TP) sensors mounted within the assembly. The powertrain control module (PCM) provides individual signal, ground, and 5-volt reference circuits to each sensor. Both sensors operate within a voltage range between 0.35-4.65 volts. When the throttle is opened from 0-100 percent, one sensor signal voltage increases while the other decreases. The signal circuit for TP sensor 1 is referenced to ground, and the signal circuit for TP sensor 2 is pulled up to 5 volts within the PCM.
