hello I experienced a problem last night in which my 2009 gmc sierra would go into a reduced power mode and i would have to pull over and shut it off and wait maybe 5 mins for it to reset..initially the traction control and stabilizer link warning would induce the reduced power mode so i pulled the fuse but it continued to occur

If the code is a throttle position sensor. This should pertain to it. Even if it out of warranty

There is a special coverage #11273B.

This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 120,000 miles (193,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.

Here is the link.
