Question P2176 Engine Code

Hello all,
First time here and I'm hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I had some errors related to to high an idle coming up on the car and cleaned the TB a few times and cleared the codes and the problem went away for a week or so.
I decided to replace the TB because I had seen the P2176 code come up before and bought a unit from AutoZone (AC Delco). So, I replaced it this past weekend, installed a new gasket with it and did the whole relearn process (I disconnected the battery for a half hour too).
Well a few days later I get the check engine light and service engine soon light again with the P2176 code. Would it be the ECM at this point or is there something I don't know about these cars that someone could shed some light.
Thanks all!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2002 VUE 3.0L
Default Re: P2176 Engine Code

I spent years chasing this one on my 2002 AWD. The TSB about the wiring harness was the final fix. I eventually had to replace that wiring harness. Changing the throttle body doesn't resolve it for long. Once, I asked my mechanic to check the harness connections and clean it up. That worked for 3 years, but the 2176 and 700 codes came back. Replacing the whole harness was the most permanent fix and the car runs much better

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
