2006 Chevrolet Aveo LS 1.6L Hesitation, MIL Lamp on VIN: KL1TD66656
Most replies said the throttle body, one said the pedal. I suspect the pedal because on the freeze frame data that is the sensor that has low voltage I think. I'll update one the customer brings back the car and I replace the pedal. Trouble codes: 2135 (throttle/pedal postion sensor/switch a/b voltage correlation).
