    i checked the owners manual, the only thing in there is about the gas cap. the gas cap is tight. the little engine light is on also. the engine power statement is where the mileage info is on the speedometer, also shows the trip mileage. only thing i can think of to clarify. thanks

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.

Just disconnect the battery and it will reset the computer. It sounds like you altered the amperage distribution on the computer. youll see it works.

I have a 2008 Impala. Started running horribly and had "engine power reduced" warning flashing. A code analysis listed about five issues unrelated to any one cylinder. I was told to clean the master air flow sensor with carbuerator cleaner. Took it apart easily. Sprayed it down. Codes gone. Car is running better. Fingers are crossed.

I just got my alternator fixed then i started having the ESC serv ice light come on, and the trac symbol comes up and the engine light flashes. and the power is reduced and it jerks when driving


its possible that the incorrect voltage regulator was fitted to the alternator during the repair. A low voltage or irregular voltage from the alternator can cause havoc with vehicle electronics

Diesel. Reduce power lite turned on. Shut off engine and started back up - lite is off. Can it be driven?


Jerry, Drive to a good shop. So many things can cause reduced power light unfortunately. The first step would be to get the truck hooked up to a scanner/computer and have the computer scanned for trouble codes. One thing that you could try is to drain the water from the water separator that is mounted on the frame under drivers front door. If the PCM picks up on water, power is reduced until water is removed/drained. It could be an exhaust sensor that is reading faulty. Unfortunately from here its impossible to tell you exactly what the fault is because there are just so many engine sensor inputs that could cause your problem. Check the attached links, forums,instruction and guides, Good luck

Could be as simple as a brake sensor ( that is your anti-lock braking system it is tied into the traction control system ) Good luck it is a easy replacement part if that is what it is.

I have a 2003 Envoy- GMC. Why does the reduce engine speed light come on


you need to scan you vehicles ECM, there is a trouble code stored there. depending on where you live most parts stores( such as a shucks/orielleys) will have a scan tool they will let you use if the vehicle is in thier parking lot. this should diagnose the issue, provided the battery hasnt been disconnected since then.

Engine is shaking, reduced power to engine, service engine light on, all of a sudden, car was driving fine


Could be anything you need to give more info. Have the cars computer scanned for codes, It may help identify the problem or help lead you in the right direction.
