2010 Pontiac with 2.4L Ecotec motor

Back in 2017 I had issues with my power steering and ESC failing at red lights and eventually while driving which I had posted about here: Power Steering / ESC Light Failed at Red Light

The solution was to replace/repair the wiring and install a new throttle body. I had zero issues for 3 years, and then I randomly got a P0013 code in 2020. I noticed my oil was low, so I got an oil change, and the code went away.

Now here in 2021 years later I am having the exact same issues. I have been getting the P0013 code randomly, it seems like every few days it comes on then goes away. The car has also stalled/died about 4-5 times now in the last month with the same issue, the power steering and ESC turn off, but if I restart the car it's fine.

I have researched P0013 and I see it's related to drops in voltage or irregular voltage at the cam shaft but I am not well versed with cars so I am not sure exactly how to proceed.

I found this thread: P0013 code help

Should I start with that and check things with a multimeter?

Another issue I have is since I live in AZ all my plastic tubing around my wires has cracked, it's all over the engine bay and 70% of the wires are just exposed. I am trying to wrap what I can with electrical tape but not sure if related. I don't see anything obvious as far as broken insulation or cut wires.

Could the aftermarket throttle body be the issue? I am sure those things don't last very long, so maybe 3-4 years is a normal lifespan?

Also I found this video, should I just try this first?

They replace the solenoids which looks simple enough, should I start here?
