them,look them up & component test using them,to find
a problem

Your getting something on reduced engine power,so you
know the system with the possible fault & if you had the
factory diagnostic manuals, you could test, to find that problem

Need a professional to find the issues

What does a volvo s80 code reduced engine power mean?


The ETM (electronic throttle module) has been known to cause the "Reduced Engine Performance" code on volvos. However, there are many sensors which could have triggered this problem. If your check engine light is on, have it scanned for free at an autozone for any engine codes which may point to the culprit.

Hi, i have message appeared on dashboard volvo v50 2.0d 2005 "engine sistem service required", could you tell me what is that mean. thanks


Millage service message can be reset without dealer tools. However this is an error message. You need diagnostic tool to check the error code. All you can do right now is to enter hidden menu and check which module is reporting issue (DTC code).

These are not codes , they are warning lights , telling you the driver that a problem exist . code says, traction control off,next code says ,service stabilitrak and the last code says...engine power reduced. DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes could be stored in the control modules that control these system's . The main problem is more then likely with the reduced engine power. This is because of a problem with the electronic throttle control system . This problem will turn off these other thing's , turning on their light's .
Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description
All newer vehicles have this ! There are position sensors in the Gas pedal and on the throttle body on the engine , The computer uses a DC volt electric motor to make the vehicle go . The sensors wear over time , the motor can wear , wiring can break etc...
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.

Engine management light comes on whilst driving


Go to a parts store and run a free diagnostic test. It will tell you the codes that have popped up and then you can fix it from there. That light means the computer is sensing a problem.
