P2136 is a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) for "Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch A/C Voltage Correlation". This can happen for multiple reasons and a mechanic needs to diagnose the specific cause for this code to be triggered in your situation. Our certified mobile mechanics can come to your home or office to perform the Check Engine Light diagnostic. Once we are able to diagnose the problem, you will be provided with an upfront quote for the recommended fix and receive $20.00 off as a credit towards the repair. All our repairs are backed by our 12-month / 12,000-mile warranty.
P2136 is an OBD-II generic code for the engine control module (ECM) detecting the throttle pedal position sensors A and C voltages do not correlate to each other for return voltage to the ECM.
The ECM monitors the throttle position sensor (TPS) and has detected the A and C throttle position sensors signal return to the ECM do not correlate with each other.
One of the sensors has an internal fault. The TPS may house both sensors.
The sensor circuit or connector has a loose or broken connection.
The Check Engine light will be illuminated and the code is set in ECM memory as a fault. The light will stay on unless the problem goes away for more than three running cycles.
The TPS has redundant sensors for the throttle position and may not have a drive complaint on some vehicles.
On some vehicles, the vehicle may go into limp home mode and limit the throttle opening and throttle response.
Scans for and documents the codes in the ECM and looks at the freeze frame data for the failure.
Checks the TPS wiring and connection for loose or corroded connections.
Scans and views data from the TPS while operating throttle to see which sensor is failing or not correlating.
Follows the manufacturer pinpoint tests for the diagnosis and replacement of the TPS.
On some vehicles the two throttle position sensors A and C may be inside one single sensor and would be replaced as a single unit.
Clearing ECM memory codes before checking the freeze frame data for the main failure problem, so the failure may be duplicated and repaired.
Failing to clear the ECM codes after the codes are fixed.
Replacing the TPS without verifying the sensor has a problem.
Code P2136 is a problem with the TPS and this can cause no throttle control problems and should be fixed immediately. The TPS is needed to control the throttle opening and closing.
Replace the TPS assembly if it is a single unit for the TPS or replace the failed throttle position sensor if they are two separate sensors.
Repair the connector pins for corrosion or loose connections at the TPS or the ECM.
Clear the codes and retest to verify the problem is not present.
Code P2136 is for a code that two TPS sensor signals do not agree with each other on throttle movement and position. Most vehicles will have a single sensor assembly that houses multiple throttle position sensors in one housing. It is replaced as an assembly. The redundant sensors are for safety and will prevent accidental throttle movement when it was not intended.
