Default throttle actuator died

so im at work this morning and i pull my car into the shop and change the oil. go to crank it back up and my CEL is on, so i hook up my scanner and run the codes. apparently somehow someway the throttle actuator takes a shit. has anyone else had this problem? im only at 3,700 miles and this shit is starting already i could have kept my horizon for problems like this.

wait the throttle actuator after an oil change? how in the hell... are you sure that was the exact code? and did you check exactly what it meant on your scanner?

yea i checked and double checked. i know it has absolutely nuthin to do with the opil change but thats when it did it. and to make me feel even better about the purchase of this what seems to be a nightmare in the works, just to fill you in i work at a automotive shop, i called the suzuki dealer to ask what the deffinition of the codes were cause i lost my book and they in such a kind voice said; why are you working on it? bring it here and let a real technician look at it. which really pissed me off. so when i got home this evening i looked up these codes on the net and found there meaning.
P2160 Vehicle speed sensor "B" circuit low
(dunno where this code comes in to play yet)
P2110 Throttle Actuator Control System- Forced Limited RPM
P2106 Throttle Actuator Control System- Forced Limited Power

Now i am trying to figure out why it did this and its completely blowing my mind. Im pretty sure the actuator is not shot but i can`t locate the problem so i guess im gonna have to hand it over to the assholes at the dealership to sort this one out. all i know is when i hold the gas pedal to the floor the butterfly in the throttle body doesnt budge. so first thing in the morning im taking the CAI off and putting the factory air box and junk back in and callin up the roadside assistance crew to come haul it in.

well problem is i dont trust dealerships after my experiences with my cavalier. i spun a rod bearing when i got it and they said they put a new engine in it and as it turns out they polished the crank with some emory cloth and slapped a new bearing in it which lasted about 3 weeks and then they wouldnt replace the engine for real, so there was a long court battle which i wound up getting nothing out of it and rebuilding my engine at home. and im really kinda weary of them if they are that rude to there customers over the phone. but o well guess i gotta bite the bullet this time, this has been the first car in a long time to trick me like this, but hopefully i will learn somethin from this and not have to take it to the dealer next time.

Well that was your cavalier, you are not dealing with the same dealer are you? Give them a try and see what come of it.

If the dealershi you go to trys to do something like this call up Suzuki and report this to them and what your problem is as well. Suzuki will crack down on the dealership.

Hey,

I dont think thats so bad unless you told them you work at an automotive shop. Tons of people try working on there cars all the time and probably screw it up....taking it back to the dealer.
