2009 Ultra - 'limp home' mode

Probably not a big deal but would like to investigate - my Ultra has 26K miles with no issues. Yesterday while cruising on the freeway at 75mph she does into 'limp home' mode, and check engine light comes on. Pull over, shut it off, sit for a minute, restart, no problem, no light, all is good, but it was a little dis-heartning. An electronic anomoly?

If anyone has a link to previous posts concerning - the procedure to pull engine codes and also what the codes identify, I know I've seen/read both here in the recent past but I can't seem to find them in search function, I would appreciate it. I will also dig out the Service Manual tonight to see if my questions are ansered in it (I'm sure they are). But since I was on here now, thought I would give it a shot while I'm in the office.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving - remember our troops with a toast and a prayer! Thanks - Mike

I would check the electronic throttle wiring connector inside the grip. Disconnect the connector, apply dialectric grease to the connection and re-plug it back together. That connection has caused problems in the past as has the '09 main wiring harness.

Thanks guys - will get on it tomorrow after my tryptophan comma has subsided -

Couldn't wait -

I found Daves Sticky under 'touring' - Under 'P' I got codes:

P1511 - EFI Power management Module
P2135 TPS Correlation error

No other codes in other ares of the diag module -

Now what? Any suggestions? I'm thinking let it ride unless it reoccurs - suggestions?
