Drive by Wire/Throttle Body Sensor?!

I use to love my 05 gto but since it has been untouched at the dealership for the last 7 days and with little hope the problem will resolve itself in the next week or two my feelings have changed a bit.

Anyone else have problems with the drive by wire/throttle body sensor, if so, I would love to hear how the problem resolved itself.

Right now as it stands Im either waiting for one of these sensors to show up somewhere or for it to be built in Australia

ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

When I bought my Z06 in Aug 01 it had a "sticky" point on some part of the drive by wire system. Can't remember if it was the throttle body or a sensor on the gas peddle. When I took my foot off the gas RPM would stay at about 2000 rpm frequently. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the part. Been working fine since then and I use mine pretty hard.

Hope they get it fixed for you soon.

interesting... the dealership and gm have both told me their currently is no replacement part available, however, down the road, they will manufacture the part in Australia, at which time they will call me back and install it on my decommissioned gto. I'm starting to get a bit nervous.

Had a problem today with my 05 the gas pedal assembly had to be replaced. I got a check engine light when I started it up and a degraded performance mode alarm. My dealer checked and there were no parts available on no date when they would be. MY dealer took one off a new car on his lot and put it in mine. they had to take the gas pedal unit out, took about 10 minutes to fix.

I agree, the throttle body assembly (with sensor) is readily available! It's funny cause I can't find a part number on the electronic throttle control sensor..... give me a little bit and I'll post back!

Theres been an open case for awhile for 2005's with faulty throttle pedal position sensors. Thats the part that isnt readily available, its the pedal, not the TB itself
