hi, this 2 codes PO2118 andPO2110, are the cause of a stuck throttle plate this will happing when the ETC has been replace but was not initialize on the system another words reset the throttle plate travel this should have been done at the dealer after installation, the programing they down load will not help on this. you need for them to connect the scanner and reset the values on the ETC, the other code is related to the EGR, and may also be contributing with the problem, you will need to have the egr tested also.

Good afternoon. Sorry for the late response but I have been out of town. After sending the original email, the car completely lost all throttle power. I took it back to my mechanic. After testing the system they said the sensor in the pedal was no good. I left my car there all week while I was out of town. Upon coming home I started mty car and the same lights came on and the throttle was dead, mind you my wife had driven the cr home from the shop the previous day. I took the car back to the shop and I am now being told they will have to replace the control unit. I showed them your email response and both they and the dealer assurerd me it was flashed and calibrated when the throttle body and A1 sensor was replaced. This thing is making me nuts.
