And I assume you're asking me to check is by the exhaust? Where is it exactly and how do I get to it?
I believe its on the driver's side side on the b***om of the cylinder head to the right of the turbo when looking at the engine from the front of the car. I'll send you an email with a picture of the sensor. The file size is too large for me to post.

Condition/Concern:
Some customers may comment that the cruise control is inoperative and/or the MIL is on with DTC P0833 stored. The condition may not be duplicated by the dealer; however, the customer may have a repeat concern.

Recommendation/Instructions:
Check the "Top of Travel" or CCP switch for adjustment if your application is adjustable. Also check for possible intermittent connections in the clutch switch circuit.

It has been discovered in some applications that using a Tech II during circuit testing of the clutch and cruise switches may lead to false readings and improper diagnosis of the CCP switch. The Tech II may read APPLIED/RELEASE upon initial toggling of the switch, however repeated toggling may then lead the Tech II to indicate a steady APPLIED or RELEASED state.

Use a DVOM to check the clutch and cruise switches.

If no circuit concerns are found, verify that the customer's driving habits are not inducing the concern. This code can set (and the cruise control disabled) if the driver rests their foot on the clutch continuously and therefore prevents the pedal from reaching the top switch. This will keep the ECM from seeing transitions while they drive above and then below the vehicle speeds listed for setting the DTC. This can cause a false P0833 to set. An example of this occurring would be in slow moving stop and go traffic such as a construction zone or heavy traffic.

Important: Please make the customer aware of this scenario and advise to make an effort to refrain from resting their foot on the clutch pedal in these situations to avoid disabling the cruise control and/or setting DTC P0833.

Note: FOR THE FOLLOWING VEHICLES ONLY

2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt

2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR

2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit

2007 Pontiac G5

2006-2007 Saturn ION

If the technician has followed the SI procedure for adjustment/replacement of the clutch pedal position sensor this may make the switch too sensitive for some driver's habits. The switch should be adjusted to reduce the sensitivity. This can be accomplished by watching the CCP switch change states with a Tech2 and adjusting it so that the pedal must travel farther before engaging switch. (I.e. from 1/4 inch travel to 1/2 inch of travel when changing states.)

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

I have a 07 cobalt 2.2 I think, I moved up to the pnw, and while towing my car and moving went down some back woods ass area in NM. I changed my battery and the car started idling high and couldn't get it to go down, also in neutral rolling backwards out the drive way the Rpms would go up,I changed the throttle body, now I'm getting p0833 circuit b,I changed the cpp and it went away but came back, I've adjusted and everything, also side note after my card warms up I hear a tapping like some one is tapping my trunk 3 times and that's new, is there a fuse for the cpp
