2010 Chevrolet Avalanche ProblemsReduced Power and Check Engine Light
The throttle position sensor (TPS) on the Chevrolet Avalanche, including the Black Diamond Edition, is notorious for failure which causes:
- Check engine light
- Reduced Power message
- OBD trouble code P2135
This issue is related to the throttle position sensor, and can be caused by faulty wiring to the TPS, bad connection at the TPS, or a failed TPS.
To correct this issue, the wiring harness, connector, and throttle position sensor must be inspected, tested, and/or replaced. The most common cause is a faulty TPS.
The upper dash may crack, most commonly on vehicles in warm climates and exposed to a lot of sunlight. The common repair is to replace the upper instrument trim panel. Information on a technical service bulletin or extended warranty is not available at this time.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
