Exclamation No power, code P2138, repair?

My wife was driving our 2006 Pathfinder (4WD, 70K miles) today when the check engine light turned on, the SLIP light went on and the VDC OFF light went on. She lost power to the point she was afraid that she wouldn't make it home. When I got home tonight I pulled the codes and only found P2138. From my best googling, it seems that this is a throttle position sensor issue.

I'm a "change your own oil, but that's it" type of car guy, so doing repair work myself is probably not happening with this one. Does anyone know what a repair on this might cost (ballpark) and the sort of timeline this takes to fix? I'm supposed to leave on vacation with this car tomorrow morning, and the repair shops around here are closed. I'm trying to gauge what sort of delay this will cause.

Anyone with a differing opinion on the diagnosis is also welcome to chip in.

Thanks

I just bought a 2007 Crew Crab Titan LE with 350 miles on it, as I was driving, the "Service Engine Soon" light came on and the "SLIP" light came on. It would let me accelerate, so I had to stop and turn it off.

When I turned it back on the SLIP light was off, but the SES light was still on. I took it in the dealership, and they said it was a P2138, something to do with the Accelerator. Anyone else have this issue?

Problem is fixed now, but just curious how common this is with everyone else.


I found this post on line and had seen several others that said it was the accelerator as well. I price a throttle position sensor (after market) for around $100 so the dealer cost on this will be more. you can probibly call your local nissan dealer and they can tell you how long it will take. The dealers in my area charge $90 just to plug it up and read the diognostic codes, which they deduct from the price if you let them fix it. good luck with your vacation hope this does not set you back.
