GM Tech (Cam) : Hello, I'm Cam. Please include all the details about your issue so I can accurately advise you. I cannot see your vehicle so please be detailed.
GM Tech (Cam) : These are all related. Usually on these the throttle body has issues if not the wiring for the accelerator pedal inside the truck.
Customer:

2 weeks ago check engine light came on truck started idling rough and fading in and out at regular speed i stopped at red light today truck had no power thaTS WHEN STABILIZE AND TRACTION CONTROL popped up on screen plus low power on screen

GM Tech (Cam) : Yes, the engine power is reduced as the first option for stability so issues in the engine disable it, and as mentioned the throttle is the most common. Have you been able to get codes from the system?
Customer:

no truck just broke today does THROTTLE BODY need replaciing

GM Tech (Cam) : More than likely yes.
Customer:

SHOULD I HAVE CODES CHECKED FIRST OR CAN THE THROTTLE BODY BE CLEANED

GM Tech (Cam) : It is not that the throttle is dirty but that the sensors inside of it have likely failed.
GM Tech (Cam) : That is why we need the codes, to be 100% sure.
GM Tech (Cam) : However there is a chance that if you are under 100000 miles that it is still under power train warranty.
Customer:

OK THANKS IM AT 90000 MILES I WILL CHECK ON WARRANTY YOU HAVE BEEN A BIG HELP

GM Tech (Cam) : Best of luck and have a wonderful weekend. Please click accept then to complete this.
