Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

P2135 throttle/pedal position sensor/switch A/B voltage correlation that puts the vehicle into "stabilitrak disabled", "traction control disabled", and "reduced engine power". while there is a tsb#11-06-04-007B regarding this issue and warranty coverage; unfortunately it does not apply to my engine. However, since this is a widely know issue, and this vehicle is experiencing the same conditions, one would think that my vehicle would be serviced under this tsb extended warranty coverage. 12/04/2014: First service attempt: Clear code everything tests fine, let"S see if it happens again. 12/10/2014: Second service attempt: Both throttle body and acc pedal position sensor tested "good". weak battery - replace battery. 12/22/2014: Third service attempt: Tech replaced accelerator pedal. Relearned throttle/idle. 12/26/2014: Forth service attempt: Relearned throttle/idle procedure. 01/13/2015: Fifth service attempt: Reprogram and apply 6 updates to ECM. 01/14/2015: Code thrown again: Dealership advising to replace throttle body (but uncertain that this will fix the problem)?
