    Hey,
    I've been getting an check engine error coming off and on for last 2 months in my Holden 08 VE SS. I took it to super cheap to get it diagnosed, and it come back with two errors.
    1st : P0222 : Throttle valve position sensor 2 : signal to small.
    2nd : P2135 : Accelerater pedal position sensor 1/2 : malfunction.
    Can any tell me more in depth what these two errors mean. And would I be looking at replacing both effected parts, or good it be just the sensors that are faulty?
    Can you replace the sensor on a VE SS throttle body, or does the whole throttle body need to be replaced. By looking around they range in price from $280 2nd hand or $1100 new. I've been told it's unlikely the throttle body is damaged or faulty the cars only done 93k kms.
    The way I'm kinda seeing it, is the two sensors are no good or are not lining up.?
    I have spoken with a mechanic who has said I could try cleaning out the throttle body, but it's unlikely to fix the issue in the long run, and best option would be to replace.
    Any info or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Jason.

    Does it still drive ok ?
    That was my first thought for the Throttle Body, Clean it out,
    & Reset the Position of the Accelerator Pedal.
    If that doesn't work, Replace the Parts.
    The other option would be if you want to replace the parts, go the Wreckers and see if you can find them there.
    At least its a starting point.

    Yeah it drives OK, once or twice it lost power but Saturday I was at a drive though, in drive, foot on the brake and it reved a bit then felt like it was going to stall. Only time it's done it. The error comes and goes it's random...
    Is there much involved in resetting the pedal?
