The problem with an engine code is that when it says the TPS is the problem what it's really saying is that it's reading values that usually indicate a bad TPS but can also be caused by another related engine control component whose failure can create the same values.

Sounds like the crankshaft position sensor is failing. I have allot of experience with this problem. The sensor is located just off the crank pulley which it gets its signal from.

Gotta go to a dealer. They hook up a machine to match the remote to your car. Probably around $60?

If you're not getting power to anything when this happens then I would tend to think is a main connection of some sort.

Check the battery connections, ground cables etc. Where ever the main cables connect at the battery, starter, and various connections. There are also more than likely 'body ground' straps or cables also. Check to see if all are clean of any rust or corrosion and are tight.

Though not as likely, it MAY possibly be a battery which is loosing connection internally.

I wouldn't recommend going out and buying a battery though. I would simply check the connections as suggested and go from there.

Hope this helps.

There is an old trick using a bic pen top to release the lock on the connector. Take a Bic pen top . Cut the top about halfway. Then slit it on the side to open it up. Bend the pointed pocket point up to use as a lever. Take the top and clip it around the pipe of the filter then push altered pen cap toward the connector. It should slide under just enough to release the lock. Good luck! I had a camaro where the filter was right near the rocker panel

Check with On-Star..Sometimes they down load software to keep current and the version may not be compatible with your auto.. this can sometimes effect the radio and retained power feature.Either that or the retained power system has a malfunction.

It may be an engine cooling problem, ie thermostat, pump etc. seems as thought the car's computer is shutting down systems to prevent some type of major failure. Have cooling system and even electrical system checked.
