My truck recently started having reduced engine power, service stabilitrack/traction control light come on. Used a code reader and got a P2138 code for the APP sensor. I replaced the sensor and decided to replace the brake light switch also since my cruise control had not been working. Now my check engine light turned off but service stabilitrack/and traction still comes up and now also the ABS light, my truck also will not shift out of park now. Did I install the brake light switch wrong?

Cannot really say on brake light switch, it could be something else as well. recheck your installation then have a mechanic scan for codes when ABS light is on it automatically knocks out traction control. your scanner will not pick up these codes anyhow. See link.

Do not be surprised if the reduced power returns as well. The P2138 code is a 50/50 code, you test out the APP sensor and the throttle body itself. Then it runs about 50/50 as to which is the actual failed item.
