lol yes definitely active codes. does everything function as it should? I get service 4wd and Stabilitrak lights when I do donuts on ice in 4wd. or sometimes when I get stuck, or whatever, and Stabilitrak is off, and there's lots of tire spin... they always go away after a couple days, sometimes within 1 or 2 key cycles.

I had the "Service Stabilitrack", "Service Traction Control" message come up on my truck but I also had a "Engine Power Is Reduced" messaged along with both SES and TCS lights on. Happened a few months ago (March 2013) My truck had about  52,000 miles at the time.  I limped it to the Chevy Dealer and they listed the codes on my RO. P0121 and P2135 both related to my failed Throttle Position Sensor. They replaced the TPS, reprogrammed the ECU and reset idle speed. 5 months/ 10,000 miles later. Now I have 62,000 miles on my truck and I've never had that message nor any other issue, runs great.   This is the only issue I had with this truck and nothing else since.

My truck's Stabilitrak and traction control warnings have come on a couple times... Once at 6000 KM, and once at about 14,000... Both times it went away after starting the truck again... It happened on my '07 as well, but only after getting stuck in the snow pretty bad.

Thanks guys for the info...I took it to the dealer at 0630 this morning and they didn't even touch it today...LOL...So I guess tomorrow
they can look at it. From what I have read on other forums, most people have had either the steering position sensor or the throttle body replaced.

 

I'll let you know....

The same on my truck.

I guess it was some dirt on a sensor.

I just had this issue on my 2011 Sierra, 114,000kms. Turned out to be throttle position sensor, luckily covered under warranty. Truck was towed to the dealer and I had back the same day!

Just had mine in last Thursday for the reduced engine power, stabiltrak and traction control warnings. I have 62000 miles on it. Turns out the throttle and accelerator sensors were bad. Throttle sensor was covered by GM but the accelerator wasn't. Can't complain about that. Sent from my SCH-I535
