It's possible the PCM fuse in the drivers side fuse panel has no power. The power distribution drawings they have are incomplete. Try to put a jumper wire between the radio fuse and the PCM fuse. The instrument cluster will come on and the engine will start.. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

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

WILL CATTERLATIC CONVRTOR CAUSE MY PROBLEMS WITH MY 2005 CHEVY MALIBU


Not a catalytic converter problem ! All the light's being on is a warning to the driver to take their vehicle to the dealer , not to be inquisitive an try to fix on their own . Complex electronic's , computer , software etc....
ENGINE POWER REDUCED has to do with electronically controlled throttle . Your best bet ,take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop an have diagnostic's run . DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored .

1998 chevey malibu 6 cyl---none of the brake lights work. i have changed stop lamp fuse in dash fuse box and the long brake light switch in front of brake pedal. any suggestions what to try next


have you checked the bulbs?. my next step would be to test for power at the brake light switch and then step on the pedal and see if power flows through on to the other side of connector, if it does then we know theres power and switch is working good, my next move would be to step on the pedal and have someone watch the brake lights and then with pedal pushed turn 4way flasher on and off and see if the lights lite up for brakes and then wiggle the signal light lever and see if the lights come on, if the brake lights come on when any of these steps are done then you have a bad signal switch, if this does nothing then i would look under the dash and locate the harness wiring from signal switch to it junction, this will be a block of wires held together with a center bolt, wiggle wires while on the brake, i have seen the power wire for the brake lights burn inside connecter, and last would be to check the wiring going to lights inside the truck, good day, hope this helps.
