No messaage of reduced engine power ? Your vehicle has electronic throttle control . Has four position sensors , two are located in the gas pedal ,an two in the throttle body . The PCM uses these sensor to know how much to open the throttle plate ,allowing more air into the engine . How did you read this code an where did you read it's definition at ? This is not a code for your vehicle . Some time cheap code readers get them wrong .
DTC P2120: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1 Circuit
DTC P2122: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1 Circuit Low Voltage
DTC P2123: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1 Circuit High Voltage
DTC P2125: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 2 Circuit
DTC P2127: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 2 Circuit Low Voltage
DTC P2128: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 2 Circuit High Voltage
DTC P2138: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation

DTC P1516: Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance
DTC P2101: Throttle Actuator Position Performance
DTC P2119: Throttle Closed Position Performance
DTC P2176: Minimum Throttle Position Not Learned

If one of this position sensors is bad it will throw the PCM into a
Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned off.
- Ignore the accelerator pedal input.
• Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

You have two places to look for your Flasher relay. Start under the hood on the drivers side there is a Black Box open it and look inside there should be a label telling you what each one is. The Other is under the dash and will require some effert to locate. Suggest you have the replacement in hand to help you locate it.

Hope This Helps.

They are always part of the pump assembly. The whole unit come out of the top of the tank. See the link, there are some tips including this Fixya post

Before you replace the sending unit try a bottle of Chevron's Techron Concentrate Plus to 12 gallons of gas in the tank. GM now recommends the use of a fuel additive (GM Fuel System Treatment Plus - part number 88861012) at each oil change which will help dissolve sulfur deposits on fuel tank sending units which causes the fuel gauge to go wacky. But Techron does the same thing as GM's additive and is widely available at auto stores and Walmart. See their site:

One of the forum sites I went to said it's for low coolant and that there is no indication in the owners manual.

Take note of any radio codes. If you don't know them, get a small or another 12v battery, a set of small jumper leads, connect the leads clips to the matching cables on the car at the battery. You are now supplying a small current in parallel. Using a buddy to hold the battery terminals away from the bodywork remove the negative first, then the positive. Remove battery and replace with new battery. Reattach positive terminal first then negative, then remove small jumper cables and it should have preserved your codes etc.

Most common problem is bad connection at the battery, or battery cable end terminals, but yes, all cars I've worked on have fusible links, either near the battery or near the starter.

Just because you hear the fuel pump run does not mean you have correct pressure at the injectors. Use test gauge to make sure. Have you run compression test to make sure timing belt has not broken?
