You are not the only one. Ive met a good many of Saturn owners (most were 2001 L300 drivers) but they were plagued with the problem you have and practically identical codes. The following remedies have been known to work:

1. Replacement Battery Cable
2.Replacement ECU Wiring Harness
3. Replacement of ECU

Get a computer diagnostics done and it will likely tell you what is wrong. You can buy readers now for less than $100.00. Otherwise you are really guessing.

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.

My 2003 chevy avalanche has been having the REDUCED ENGINE POWER warning and the engine cant acelerate.

I'm an owner who had this problem on / off for a year. Several returns to dealership proved hopeless. Service shop devulged that '03 Avalanches had a overall electric problem that could not be detected. I legally forced dealership's hand...They replaced the entire wiring harness at no cost. No problem since. George
