Yeah, Ford will declare their parts lines obsolete and stop carrying them long before the parts stores run out of those parts. Ford really wants to sell new cars and trucks, doesn't care to see people repair and keep them... naturally. Unfortunately, some parts are dealer only. In that case, limited to salvage yards or internet searches. Extensive catalog and inventory at, and lowest new parts pricing around. For a nation wide locator of used parts, try
Is this an electrical connector? I don't know how the throttle actuator works. If an electrical connector, solder in a used one to your wires. If a mechanical actuator, should be able to find a used one. Sorry I don't know.

DTC P1516 Throttle Actuator Control(TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance

It only can be repaired at dealer, BUT you can try this first, by disconnecting the connectors at throttle body area and clean the connector with connector cleaner spray, and reconnect it. If it still doesn't solve the issue at all, take it to the dealer.

What does the code P2112 mean?

This Code means the throttle actuator control is stuck closed. Clean the Butterfly flap in the air horn assembly.
Sometimes you get this warning when the Butterfly flap position does not match what the computer thinks it is set for. But since you are losing power, you may be losing control of the throttle actuator. Check connectors, clean the airhorn. Also check your TPS connector.

I have a 2005 GMC 2500HD code P1516, already replaced APP. Still dies, reduce engine speed comes up. What is the next step?

The Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) / throttle body type trouble codes, may be caused by a loose wiring crimp at the throttle body connector, or a broken throttle body circuit.Inspect all related throttle body terminals for a loose wiring crimp. The loose crimp may be difficult to find, and the poor connection will be between the terminal and the copper strands of the wire. Wiggle test the individual throttle body circuits to see if the concern can be duplicated.
Inspect the related circuits for broken wires inside the insulation. The outer wire insulation may look fine, but the internal copper strands may be partially broken. Breaks in the wires usually occur within 1 to 4 inches of the throttle body connector. Wiggle testing may also induce a trouble code to set.
On C/K trucks complete SI procedures for voltage drop on grounds G103 and G104. Grounds G103 or G104 may be loose or corroded. If a terminal crimp or a broken wire has been found, repair or replace only the circuits involved. There is a throttle body pigtail connector available through GMSPO, post back with what you find.
