Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab
When i start my truck it says reduced engine power across the dash. when i step on the throttle it does not rev up. Last night the check engine light came on and this morning it was still on, I disconnected the battery, checked all fluids and the light was still on. I checked a few electrical connections to see if they were tight and one under the hood on the firewall just above the steering column clicked and when I checked the dash the light was still there and the message center reads reduced engine power. when I press on the gas pedal there is no power. Engine idles smooth.
The above descriptions of the connector are very good. I washed the engine compartment yesterday, and immediately started getting the reduced enginer power code on the CIC, not performance. After reading several posts, I checked the connector on my 2003 2500HD, and found that the connector was not seated well and had gotten water in it. I cleared the water and the reconnected. The cables running from the fuse box to the connector are so short, the connector is in a bind and is pulled off-center. That is why the connector wasn't seated properly. The code went away, and the performance returned. By the way, be sure to do this after pulling the negative cable on your battery.

My Dad and I both had the same problem. All he did was stomp the gas pedal fast and hard and it fixed itself, mine I had to replace the pedal sensor.
The pedal sensor cost about $50.00 and you can do it yourself. You will need to remove the gas pedal (it is only 2 screws) and unplug the pedal sensor, you will need a star bit with a whole in the center ($2.00 and you can buy the set anywhere) of it. This fix is very easy and it should only take you about 20 minutes to complete.
All the Best
