    hey guys just got this code came up on MY10 Sv6. Checked it with my code reader and it said throttle actuator control system - idle position not learned. Not sure if it indicates a problem with the tps or if the throttle body needs cleaning. Anyone have any idea what this code means. I have searched the forum and haven't found anything to help me.

    Cheers for that blackvxgts plenty of good reading there. I did read in that document that a low battery charge could cause it. My battery was low when I started the car because it had been in the garage for 3 weeks while I was away on holidays. I cleared the code and charged the battery and will see how it goes. If the code comes back I will have to take it to Holden for diagnosis.

    Same thing happened to my ve sv6, haven’t had any problems accelerating or didn’t stall, when I turn the car on it smells pretty heavily of fuel. Would a faulty sensor cause it to run rich? Also is it just a matter of replacing it or what
