P1125 PONTIAC - Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor Fault
P1125 PONTIAC Possible Causes
- Faulty Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor
- Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
How is the P1125 PONTIAC code repair?Start by checking the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector's pins.
What is the cost to diagnose the P1125 PONTIAC code
Labor: 1.0The cost to diagnose the P1125 PONTIAC code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary widely across the country, and even within the same city. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
When is the code detected?The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detects that the difference between Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) sensor 1 and APP sensor 2 is more than the predicted value.
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P1125 PONTIAC MeaningThe accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor 1 and the APP sensor 2 are potentiometer type sensors, each with the following circuits:
• A 5-volt reference circuit
• A low reference circuit
• A signal circuit
The control module provides the APP sensors with a 5-volt reference circuit and a low reference circuit. The APP sensors then provide the control module signal voltages proportional to pedal movement. The APP sensor 1 signal voltage is low at rest and increases as the pedal is depressed.
The APP sensor 2 signal voltage is low at rest and increases as the pedal is depressed. When the control module detects that the APP sensor 1 and the APP sensor 2 signal circuits are out of correlation with each other, DTC P1125 sets.
