hey i have 06 acura tl and im havin a similar problem with my car going into limp mode. I turned it off and came back in the morning with just my check engine light on.

Update: My APP sensor code is P2138. I had it checked and apparently there is an issue with the "A" - "B" correllation. Will changing the sensor resolve this issue?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Replacing the sensor will almost surely repair the issue. The sensor actually contains two sensors which work in unison but at different voltages for redundancy. This code sets when the two signals do not agree with each other. It could be a wiring or connection issue with either of the two signal circuits but the most common cause would be the sensor. It looks like you already have a replacement, I would recommend installing it.
