Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR)
The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR) is a multifunction module that operates both the keyless entry system as well as the tire pressure monitoring (TPM) system. When an RF message is received from a keyless entry transmitter, the RCDLR interprets this signal and will request via serial data that the body control module (BCM) perform the specific function, i.e. door lock, door unlock, or vehicle locate. The RCDLR also sends messages out to the 2 Way Advanced Remote Start transmitter.

Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) (AP3 or AP8, without E52)
Top rear of the passenger compartment above the rear window

Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) (AP3 or AP8, with E52)

Body Control Module (BCM)
On the lower left side of the I/P to the left of the steering column

Could be several different problems - first step is to check for error codes (DTCs) and follow up if any.

These are not codes , they are warning lights , telling you the driver that a problem exist . code says, traction control off,next code says ,service stabilitrak and the last code says...engine power reduced. DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes could be stored in the control modules that control these system's . The main problem is more then likely with the reduced engine power. This is because of a problem with the electronic throttle control system . This problem will turn off these other thing's , turning on their light's .
Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description
All newer vehicles have this ! There are position sensors in the Gas pedal and on the throttle body on the engine , The computer uses a DC volt electric motor to make the vehicle go . The sensors wear over time , the motor can wear , wiring can break etc...
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.

Could be your emergency brake cable is locking up,could be just one side on the rear.

Chevrolet... | Answered on Apr 05, 2017

There are a lot of things to check. The idler is not the same as the tensioner, make sure they are both ok. The compressor could be experiencing lockups from contamination or ice build up / fluid entry due to charging or condenser problems. A used belt is a used belt, they stretch, even after 5 minutes. Make sure the belt size is correct.

It may just be the fuel pump seal at the top of the tank. it has to be dropped for a definite diagnosis. It is rare but the tank seams occasionally crack too. Good luck.

You need to run an OBD2 fault code test on this, it is the most important test you can do in order to make sense of what is going on. The test can be done by any Autozone parts store for free or other store like them.

Chevrolet... | Answered on Mar 04, 2017

it will show in the fault codes . It uses the same sensors as the ABS

Chevrolet... | Answered on Dec 30, 2016
