The following is a post from another site. I had the same problem and this worked for me.
I just wanted to share with everyone with the problem that I had withmy 2003 1500HD Crew Cab with 6.0 Liter. My truck would go into reducedengine power off and on. Sometimes one a week, sometimes 5 times on a20 mile trip. My problem was a broken wire on the plug in going in tothe throttle body. In the picture is the plug in that had caused me allof my pain and grief....... My problem was very intermittent and washard to diagnose. I started vehicle and with all codes clear. I wiggledthe wiring harness in the picture and vehicle spit and sputtered,throwing it into reduced engine power mode, and then smoothed out to asmooth idle. I disconnected the plug and pulled wires out of plug endand found a broken wire. Mine was a brown wire with white stripe. BUT,what was interesting, was that this vehicle had apparently had the smaeproblem with previous owner, becuz there was another wire (yellow wire)right beside the one that I found broken already soldered up and tapedfrom where it had apparently happened before. This was my problem andnot my truck is running great, and actually even idles better thatbefore. Hope this helps with any problems that anyone else is having. Iknow this problem can be very irritating.

this model has what they call fly by wire.. no accelerator cable. If the computer detects a problem in the thottle system it will not allow the engine to accelerate and will show reduced power and possibly set a check engine light. The dealer usually wants to replace the throttle assembly which is very expensive and usually un nessesary.
I have had a lot of succes with just cleaning the throttle plates real good.

You will need to get the codes checked.This will help in finding out what is causing the light to come on.Once you get the code or codes we can find out what could be causing the problem.Let me know when you get the codes and I`ll be glad to help you out.Good luck.
