Question about 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix
3.8L V6 Engine was overheating last week, I replaced the thermostat and all was well until today. First I received a "Reduced Engine Power" warning and the check engine light came on. Shortly after that another warning was displayed - "Service Traction System". I could feel the reduced power, as if a cylinder or two wasn't working. I got 3 different error codes : P1125, P2125, and P2138. All three point to the Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor. So my question is, where is the APP sensor located?

Have you ever had the catalytic converter changed. Over time the pellets inside will melt together and this will make the care very very sluggish like it does not want to run. You may want to try that.

Hi, the only thing common between the fuel pump circuit and the ignition circuit is the ECM itself. Recommend you check the ECM fuse. Not sure if it's in the car or the engine compartment fuse box. If this isn't the problem, you may have 2 separate problems. Your car doesn't have passlock anti-theft does it?

Some customers may comment on an intermittent malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) being Illuminated with a message or an indicator that displays Reduced Engine Power.
The technician may observe on a scan tool DTC P2138 - Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation set as Current or in History.
CauseThis condition may be caused by water intrusion into the instrument panel (IP) to body harness connector, which carries the APP sensor signals to the ECM/PCM. This water intrusion results in a voltage difference between APP Sensor 1 and APP Sensor 2 that exceeds a predetermined value for more than a calibrated period of time, setting P2138.
Note: Aftermarket equipment can generate DTC P2138 and/or other DTCs. This is as service bulletin I located. Is there any additional codes present.Would definitely check that harness connection for corrosion and is vehicle running poorly?
