Anyone help me out here?

2011 chevy traverse  lt1  77.xxx miles
Bought it with 12,000 miles in 2011
Made it to 38000 with no problems
At 38,xxx had a I have had Check engine light, traction control/stabilitrak and engine power reduced stuff happen to me.
Code was p0700 transmission control system malfunction
Cleared code
Then at 57,xxx Same thing went on
Cleared code
At 66,xxx  got traction control/stabilitrak and engine power reduced but no cel and no codes
Now at 77,xxx miles it does traction control/stabilitrak and engine power reduced and it leaves my wife siting for about 10 mins once a week.
Forgot to say it has been to dealer 4 times for a few different things. 

Now here are my questions for someone?

1 How can this happen when driving and not set any codes?

2 Does the throttle body replacement really work?

3 Do I still have warranty?

4 Do I need to be worried about the timing chains?  (I change oil on the light 8k to 10k) Use mobil 1 and good filter

5 Time to trade this thing in?

Any advise is appreciated  Thanks

At 38K and 57K you cleared codes with no repairs noted.

What were the codes at those incidents?

You may have a faulty or dirty wheel speed sensor.  When they false report they ann cause issues like you are having. There is a thread on here or the Acadia fourm on cleaning them

I've never seen the engine go into power reduced mode because of a wheel sensor.  Not saying it can't happen, but I think you have something else going on.

Although you may still have powertrain warranty, I don't believe many engine sensors or the throttle body are covered by it.  I think you have something going on under the hood or with the transmission, not with the wheels sensors.

partsmark71,

Very sorry to hear about your vehicle concerns as I certainly understand the displeasure you're feeling. I'm able to research your vehicle's warranties if you message me your VIN. While I realize you're seeking community opinions, I'd be happy to extend an offer of assistance. If needed, feel free to contact me privately and we can get the process involving an official diagnosis started.

Had the exact same issue with mine at about the same mileage.
So far have replace first the throttle position sensor and now the entire throttle body.

P0700 deals with the transmission/transaxle so why are you replacing a throttle speed sensor and throttle body?

I just got that message this morning, I'm at 54000km
Traction control turned off ! (traction light came on)
 service stabilitrak!
Engine power reduced !
 That was just as I parked at the store, when I restarted the car it didn't show anything until I got a block from home.
Same message and light as before only now the engine light came on.

I had this happen several times recently, my dealer did a throttle position sensor re-learn and it hasn't done it again since. Hopefully yours is as easy a fix!!

Found this over at the Acadia Forum

http://www.acadiaforum.net/index.php?topic=9805.0

What I dont understand about Laurenp03's post is why a TPS relearn can clear up a transmission problem.

I had this problem last night while traveling home from a road trip in my 2010. I took it in this morning and my dealer replaced the throttle body and reprogramed it. So far it seems to be doing ok, but I am not happy with having to pay for the repair and seeing a lot of owners are having the same problems with their vehicle. Do anyone have any information on a possible recall for this problem. I have also had pretty much all the same issues with my Traverse as other owners such as a/c, water pump, rear seat belt which luckily happen within warranty period.

So according to the Acadia forum, it's the transmission mode switch. Anyone try getting it replaced? Was that the problem? Cost to replace/repair? I need to know, I'm working a seasonal job and money's tight. The traverse is our only vehicle. Thank you.

It's a shame the manufacturer has not owned up and recalled this defect. A 2014 owned for 5 days to break down is pitiful and puts the owner at a reduced reliablility of the vehicle. Defeats the purpose of buying a new vehicle.

I would not call it a defect.

Its part of the programming. that this stabilitrack/reduced engine power activates.



That a 2014 does it--- most likely a loose connector.
