Hello, I'm Cam.
Can I get your first name please?
So the fault may not set the CB eck engine light but does your scanner show you if any codes pending? The issues that I've seen around this with the pedal position sensor itself, the wiring to the sensor, or as strange as it sounds the turbocharger position sensor. The Accelerator pedal position sensor uses three different sensors inside of it, each with a separate 5 V reference. One of the other sensors sharing any of these reference voltages could be dragging that voltage down in setting this issue. Finding which one could be a pain, and have to use the scanner that will view live data from the engine control module, and from there we see which sensor. The computer supplies and monitors each five reference, so if one of them is low then we need to change that one down.

my name is ***** ***** what should i try now?
GM Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago
the next step Justin is to figure out which voltage is down. To do that we need to get our hands on a full function scan tool that shows all of the ECM values including the Five volt references I spoke about.

ok so hook it up and then do what?
GM Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago
You hook the scan tool up and then navigate to the live stream where you would see engine speed and throttle position and such. You will navigate down to the reference voltage is in with the key turned on but the engine off, tell me what the voltages for reference one, reference two, and reference three. From there I can tell you which sensors share the same reference voltage so that you can start unplugging the sensors to see which one returns the voltage to normal. If one of the sensors it shorted out inside, it would drag the whole line down.

ok got a good scanner getting code p0101 which is mass air flow sensor do you think this may be the cause?
GM Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Yes, very possible. Is the air filter plugged? Dirty Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF) sensor in the duct? Plugged exhaust? charge air cooler line popped off?

GM Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Its modified to add a second turbo? Factory it only came with one.

its a built truck has compound turbo setup
GM Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

OK, so lets check that Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF) sensor then. I am not sure where it would be in your setup, does this share a single air filter?

Ask Your Own GM Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
what do you want to check on it the air flow or what?
GM Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Dirt on the sensor, even consider unplugging the sensor and see what that does.
