Customer Question
2007 Silverado 4.8 cu...

2007 Silverado 4.8 cu. I have a P2138 code do you have a wiring diagram to show APP sensorcircuits for potential shorts to ground or high voltage drop while manipulating the harness between the APP sensor and ECM. Also inspect the related APP sensor circuits for poor terminal tension at the APP sensor and ECM connectors using the correct terminal test probes. also inspect C109/X109 and C205/X205 for the following concerns:•
connector halves that are not seated properly

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's manual?

Not detail enough

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Silverado yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've replaced the gas pedal,no luck.replaced the throttle body assembly, no luck.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am ready to check and see if their are any loose connections and not sure where to start on the fuse block.
