CHEVROLET SSR ENGINE PROBLEM

2006 Chevrolet SSR • 100,000 miles

My dads 2006 chevy ssr died on me today. I had to push it back home. The truck before it died lost horsepower it went from 400hp down to 350hp and that was it. I shot the throttle body with ether and it did what it was suppose to do it fired off and then it turned off. The two engine lights came on. The one was the engine light and the other one was loss of power light. I put my tester to the computer and got these codes. The codes are p0443, p0689, p1682, p2101, p2176, c0700, c0300, p0102, p0113, and 3-5 N/A code not sure what that means. The battery has been tested. It is good they could not test the alternator but they said since the battery is good so is the alternator. Thanks.

Hows the fuel pressure? Are injectors firing?

The fuel pressure is at 60. How would I test or know if the injectors are firing. Thanks.

Noid light for test. Buy or make your own. Engine die/that many codes could mean ignition switch (fairly common) or ECM problem and it has 8yr warranty.

Ok. You dont think it is the throttle body. When I shot it with ether she fired like it was suppose to when you spray ether. I fired and died in seconds which ether is suppose to do. Thanks.
