SOURCE: why does reduce engine power light comes on chevy

That is a hard problem to pin point without knowing what codes the computer has stored. It can be any number or sensors or engine problems.

You can go to most auto parts stores and they will pull the codes for you for free.

best bet is to stop in at a Pep Boys, Autozone, or similar big autoparts seller, and ask for free trouble code scan, which should pinpoint area causing problem. If not obvious by codes, what is necessary to repair the problem code, get back to us with those codes and we will be glad to assist you further. Better this way, takes away the guess work, and saves you money, as well as getting it right the first time.

Check you leads on your throttle body plug. This is a GM problem but they have not had enough complaints to recall any vehicles. Some other GM vehicles have the same issue and the dealer can't seem to solve it or acknowledge the problem.

Check engine light came on then reduce engine power


When this light comes on it means the computer control module has detected a fault in the system, it has reduced power to avoid any damage to the engine or transmission. You must now have the computer scanned for fault codes, this is done through the diagnostic connector under the dash see photo below.

P1516 p2101


I have the same car and year, same thing happened to me this morning. My car said "engine reduce power" and then "engine power off". My car also right afterwards said to "check charge system". That's the alternator, the wires on the front of it had come loose. I plugged it back in and the car started right back up. It's been running fine since. I've had a problem with the alternator before and it shut my car down then too. I'd start with the alternator and go from there.

Why does the engine shut off on 2006 hhr when message engine power reduced displays


Could be something causing the engine to die which is making the warning light come on, or something that the computer sees as a threat of damage to the engine and the computer is shutting down the engine to prevent damage.
You would have the computer scanned for trouble codes and then proceed with troubleshooting the issue.

Could be the fuel filter or the fuel pressure regulator., does the check engine light come on?
if it does you will have to get a scanner put on it to read the trouble code, if not then the problem could be the engine is not getting enough fuel.

Reduced engine power silverado 2006.Engine light came on.Stopped vehicule shut off engine and restarted.engine light stayed on and had lots of power.


You need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Whatever happened stopped after you restarted the engine, but the engine light wont go off until the ignition cycles many times without any problems. Any parts store will scan your truck for free. Have them scan it and clear the codes, and come back here and let us know what code/s you get.
