2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD ProblemsReduced Power and Check Engine Light
The throttle position sensor (TPS) on the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD 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 speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault. The warranty has been extended on some of these units to 7 years or 70,000 miles.

2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD QuestionsMy service 4 wheel drive light is on what do I do to fix it? (1 answer)
We changed the transfer case and now it says service 4 wheel drive and when you change it to 2 wheel drive to four wheel drive it doesn't light up. Any ideas?
Immediately after changing the fluid and filter, it shifted very hard out of first gear, and sluggish out of other gears. After driving about 7 miles, it set the po762 for the first time. Now I cant drive more than ten feet without setting it.
