2005 focus 1.6 limp mode problem and P2100 code

Try clearing the code from the computer. If it returns again, the second hand one could be bad also! Some codes are what they call a hard code, that stays in the computer memory, and will think that the problem wasn't repaired (even though the part was replaced). Till the code is cleared from the memory, the vehicle will return to a limp mode untill the problem is resolved!!

Why when i push the gas on my 2004 trailblazer it wont speed up

Your SUV has an electronic throttle body. Unlike the other type which is driven by cable, this relies on multiple sensors in the gas pedal and multiple sensors in the throttle body. If one or more of the sensors don't agree (i.e: one sensor says you're at 80% it while another says 40% throttle) then it goes in to a default mode or "limp home" mode. It basically makes you take it to be repaired because it is unsafe to be driven.

I have a 2001 Saab 93 with a trouble code of P1251. Any idea of what that means?

Hello! The problem is that the Electronic Throttle Motor (ETM) is in limp mode...Most common fault is that the mechanism is fouled with carbon...But first check connector for loose or broken wires...It has a 10 pin connector...Remove and clean motor and throttle body using throttle body cleaner...See attached drawing...It is a procedure to take the motor out of limp mode...



I’m happy to help further over the phone at
