Customer Question
I had a check...

I had a check engine light. My code reader said it was the throttle petal sensor. I changed the petal assembly and a week later it is on again.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2008 Chevy silverado

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

After changing it the first I have done nothing but read the code again.
