This is the code I got when I checked it. We have replaced the whole throttle body including the throttle position sensor, replaced the accelerator sensor. All the fuses are fine, it starts and drives but it’s only in limp mode. We went the ECM to be repaired but they say there is nothing wrong with it. What else can I try before I end up taking it to a mechanic?
Do you

Hello again,

That was my bad, sorry about that. Is your Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) AKA, "check engine" light on?

Thanks,
