I suggest you tell us what this mystery vehicle is so we can try to help. But from what you described i would start by checking fuel pressure at the fuel rail. And changing the fuel filter.

I have a 2003 Saturn L300 6 cylinder. Last week the reduced power light came on and stays on every time the car is driven. The car performs the same but the heater is not working normally. Takes longer to...

This has nothing to do with the heat on the vehicle .
Reduced Power
The reduced power telltale is turned ON by the cluster when it receives a command from the body control module (BCM). The engine control module (ECM) (L81) engine sends a message to the BCM over the CAN serial data link.
The reduced power telltale is illuminated when the ECM is limiting engine torque in a low traction situation. This telltale is used only for the V6 (L81) engine application.
The reduced power telltale is turned ON by the cluster for 2-3 seconds, when the ignition is turned to RUN, for a visual system check.

Taking the vehicle to a qualified repair shop an having it diagnosed would be your best . Unless you have a factory tech 2 scan tool to read BCM DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's an have factory diagnostic repair info.
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.

Getting a reduced engine power light

Sounds like possible electronic fuel pump failure. when fuel pump gets weaker as the fuel level gets lower . Some folks have a tendency to run their vehicle low on fuel which will eventually shorten the life of the fuel pump.
In some cases you can fill the car up with fuel and the problem will go away in the early stages of the fuel pump problem. The problem comes back as the fuel supply in the tank gets lower. This is one sign.
