SOURCE: my service traction control light keeps on going

there is a defective component in the system, almost for certain that is one of the four wheel speed sensors, have the system tested by any GM dealer to determine which one, or buy one new sensor and move it from wheel to wheel until the light goes out.

SOURCE: 2006 Chevy Impala reduced engine power

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.

You need to go to Autozone to get your check engine light scanned for a code. It doesn't cost anything. Hopefully, your computer has found your problem. They can tell you why your light is on and tell you what the problem is. This will let you know where to start because they are a few things that can cause your engine to loose power.

Engine power is reduced keeps showing on the dash screen, as does service traction control. the car is running rough and has no power when this occurs.


how do you fix the "reduced engine power" light on the dash bard of a 07 Chevy Impala LTZ and "Service Traction Control"?

WHat does it mean when your traction control indicator comes on and says it has reduced your engine power?


Hello Jeremy.
When your traction light comes on it is indicating wheel spin on acceleration. To prevent wheel spin an onboard computer reduces engine power to limit the wheel spin. Some, if not most, cars equipped with this feature will also apply the brakes if wheel spin continues after reducing engine power.
Hope this answers your question.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Engine power has been reduced


I had the same problem. Took it to a Chevy dealer to be checked out. It turned out to be a wire that was loose that was connected to the throttle position sensor. They had just had three other 06 Impala's come in for the same problem.
