Code p2138 but not the App sensor or tps (Throttle body)
Lil backstory, Ive had my 05 acura TL base for close to 3 years now and In that short time I've replaced the transmission with a rebuilt one, all new genuine transmission sensors/solenoids etc. Replaced speed sensor, pcm repaired, motor/transmission mounts, valve cover gaskets, tuned it up and a few other odds and ends. I love the car but I have had so much trouble with it. In the last few months I've been having an issue with the VSA, traction and cel coming on and puts my car into limp mode. I replaced the APP with a new genuine sensor and it didn't fix it so I took the part back and replaced it with another genuine APP sensor with no luck. Next I ordered a throttle body with 84k on it thinking that may be my issue but today the light is coming back on and gas pedal disabled. This has been my dream car for years and now that I finally have it I'm really disappointed. My next move is to check the harness that goes to the pcm and see if that may be damaged and probably send the PCM in again to get it checked and if needed repaired again. The car is now in PA but was a Florida car until 2016. Hope someone can help as I don't wanna take it to Acura.
