have you had the codes read yet in the computer ?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
no how do i?
Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

with a code reader or have a local autozone or pepboys or firestone check the codes for you..they will do it for free

99 % of these end up being throttle body codes set which it ends up being the connector at the throttle body bad or the throttle body itself bad

its usually best to replace the throttle body connector and if the problem comes back you will need to replace the throttle body itself to fix this issue

The only dtc codes that came up was p1258. I've been able to drive the vehicle for 3 days without issue it's really weird
Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

only worry about it if it happens to act up again

if it does then there will be a throttle body or connector issue

But I still have to reset the truck when I first start it or it has no power and feels like it's stuck in like 3rd gear but no codes or warnings now
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Also makes loud clink when I put into gear if I don't reset truck and just start it
Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

then the issue is the throttle body or sometimes a bad ignition switch

have a shop test both for you next

I think when he ran the codes he did say something about a ignition switch or ignition sensor but it wasn't a doc code
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Dtc*The ignition switch can cause those issues? Where would I find the ignition switch?
Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

it is located top of the steering column plugged into the bottom of the ignition lock cyclinder
