ok the problem i'm about to state is a huge problem with the 2003 1500 hds since they where new and chevy has had several complaints over the years with a refusal to repair. the throttle actuator control is what the pedal sensor tells to move the throttle body. every so often (sometimes multiple times a day) this module weirds out and puts the truck in to reduced engine power (limp mode) and won't do over 25 mph which is very hazardous when traveling freeways and turn pikes where the speed limit is high.i myself have been almost ran over by big rigs because my truck decided to go into this reduced engine power mode in the middle of rush hour. i myself have been on the phone multiple times with chevrolet corporate with them telling me that i'm screwed and to get over it. don't get me wrong i love my truck but i just wish chevy would stand by their vehicles instead of blowing us off.

at approximately 50 mph coolant loss from a cracked cylinder head sent a signal to the ecm to shut down the engine which caused the loss of power steering and control. weather conditions were snow and wind and i was following two dry tracks in the road, upon loss of power the truck drifted onto an area of road covered in snow which nearly carried me off into a ditch. on a dry day if this had occurred inertia would have taken me on to a soft shoulder so in this instance the cold weather and snow actually helped the truck from drifting too far off the road. once disabled along side the road the weather began to deteriorate to near white out conditions, thankfully another driver pulled up behind me about 50 yards back and used his flashers to warn on coming drivers. after the truck cooled a bit it re-started and i took for service. a mechanic noticed a cracked cylinder head as the culprit. i have come to learn this is a common problem with these vehicles. my wife will occasionally drive this truck and it could have been a different situation if she could not have muscled the unassisted steering to the side of the road. it is my belief that any condition that will shut down an engine under full power should be the responsibility of the manufacturer to fix. *tr

lost power to engine while driving down the interstate highway. fault on dash showed (reduced engine power). pulled to shoulder of highway and tried to restart engine to no avail. after sitting for about 5 minutes engine started and check engine light stayed on for a few days. since that time i have replaced the throttle position sensor and have still been having the same problem for the past 2 years. it will sometimes drive for a few days without any problem, but some days it will occur 10 or more times in a day. i have been on several websites only to see several people are experiencing the same problem even on different models and year vehicle's. this could and may well have caused deathly auto accidents. i have looked for a recall on this problem and could not find one. my question is, "are there any plans to recall effected vehicles for the issue of "reduced engine power?" please check into this asap. thank you for your time and concern.
