Anyone solved the reduced power light and going to limp mode yet?


Asked by Feb 27, 2011 at 05:54 PM about the 2003 Isuzu Rodeo S V6 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am sitting at a stop light and the truck begins to idle rough then it goes into reduced power mode.  I can floor it and get up to abut 25-30 down a slight grade.  Computer codes are 401 (EGR i already know), 1295(loss of throttle position sensor 5 volt reference), 1516 (TAC module throttle actuator position).  I love my Isuzu but the wife is making me get rid of it unless i can convince her I fixed it!
