We Had the same issue in our 2010 AWD. It turned out to be a fairly easy and inexpensive fix. These vehicles and most of them on the road now are "fly by wire", in other words instead of having a cable or linkage connecting the pedal to the throttle plate on the engine there's a sensor on the pedal that tells the computer how much you're pushing it down and the computer tells an actuator on the throttle body how much to open up.

The problem with most of these that are having this issue is the actuator on the throttle body is going out. The throttle body and actuator are purchased as a unit and can be changed out with simple tools in less than a half hour. The new throttle body unit can be purchased for less than $150 at quite a few vendors.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like a normal Chevy problem. My wife's 08 impala had the same issue. "Service traction control" "engine power reduced". Car ran sluggish. Swapped the pedal out and issue resolved.

Simple. Remove two bolts and unplug one plug. Reverse directions for install.

I have a 2010 AWD Traverse with the same issues as in this post.    My codes are p182e and p0700.  Has anyone successfully gotten this fixed?  Or am I looking at long battle that I will never win? Smiley

Are you planning to have this repaired yourself or are you hoping to work with the repair shop? If you're interested in working with the dealership we'd be more than happy to set that up for you. We want to ensure you have access to all the necessary resources to get this taken care of, and we feel the dealership is generally in the best position to technically assist. If you'd like to take this approach please send us a PM with your full contact information, VIN, mileage, and preferred dealership.
