The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
A vehicle may be brought into the dealer for a reduced power message, and DTCs P0120, P0220, P1516, P2101, or P2135.
Complete the current SI diagnostics for any symptoms or trouble codes found. If a intermittent T/P or TAC module type code is occurring complete the inspections below.
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, but installing this pigtail connector may cause other intermittent TAC module/TP codes at a later date. If this pigtail must be used, please follow the SI procedures for Splicing Copper Wire Using Splice Sleeves. (the proper Kent-Moore crimping tool must be used for this repair)
Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
So your saying that in most cases it is a loose wire crimp. I did check that. There is very little reason that the wires would be broken or even moved, there has never been any movement of anything in the engine compartment since we owned it, no one moving any wires or harnesses for any reason. Just oil air filter changes, etc. No problems of any kind until this.
What would cause a loose wire crimp, gravity?
