Default Error Fault Code P2103...cleared itself?

Hi all, need some opinions here.

I have 50k miles on my Cab. I had less than a quarter tank of gas. I started car and about a quarter mile in, I get the dreaded “Fault Engine Control. Possible to drive on. So I limp home and garage car.

When I got home from work, ran an OBD II scan and up came the P2103 code which stands for “Throttle Actuator Control Motor Circuit High”. So I did some Googling and called my local 911 mechanic. He recommended that I clear code and see what happens. Okay. I return to car to clear code, fire her up and she’s fine...she is out of limp mode. I drove her a couple of miles and filled her up. She seems fine.

Going on a little trip out of town next week. Any thoughts on this? Should I be worried? Or was this just a stuck throttle actuator that unstuck itself?

Thanks for any feedback.

Is all other maintenance up to date? Have you completed the 40K service??

I don't think the car self repaired itself.

Gremlins appear and disappear all the time so don't worry about something that is no longer a problem. Otherwise, stop driving it and sell it before it hits 50k miles...sounds better to advertise it with "49xxx miles".

I tend to agree with you Bob...I don’t flip cars and keep mine an average of about 14 years. I truly believe this was just a minor glitch...I’m taking her back out tomorrow...if she acts up again, I’ll know she needs some TLC...it’s all good, 50,000 miles, zero issues.

Drove car 60 miles today....no issues. I have a feeling running on low fuel may have contributed to error? Gremlin for sure. It actually happens!
