What does engine power reduced mean and how can it be fixed


Hi Cathy, I would like to assist you with your car problem; may I have more info please? Include year, make, and model of the car you are having problems with. Specify the driving circumstances when the dash light went on (e.g. check engine, MIL, etc)
Did you lose speed? Is your speed limited to 20 m.p.h.?
Were you able to pull any diagnostic trouble codes using an OBD-II scanner tool?
Depending on the circumstances and the pulled DTCs, it could be as simple as: a problem with the battery dying; or a poor connection due to corrosion or moisture damage; loose battery connections , or some other power system failure with a wiring harness, headlights, or wipers.
More serious problems may be the cause too; such as
  • Defective throttle position (TP) sensor
  • Defective oxygen sensor
  • Defective accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor
  • Loose or damaged wiring
  • Defective throttle body
  • Defective powertrain control module (PCM)
  • Any fault/error that will affect drivability function
  • Any fault/error that will affect vehicle performance
  • A fault/error in the emissions system
  • A fault/error in the throttle control system
  • A fault/error in the transmission system
In these cases, the reduced engine power warning light is considered extremely serious because of the immediate and severe drive-ability problems that will be present until the engine or transmission fault/error is repaired. More damage could be incurred if you continue to drive the affected car without making the proper and necessary repairs...and in the long run, cost you more money.
If you don't have an OBD-II reader, does a neighbor have one you can borrow? If not, you can rent one out from your local auto parts store; I would not recommend driving the car to the auto parts store, however, if you are desperate and need to drive the car to the parts store, a counter- person will be more than happy to assist you and pull the codes free of charge. Let me know if I could be of further assistance.

My Vauxhall mariva 2011 has loss power in the steering is this a common fault for age of car


It was a common fault on the earlier year cars with the electric power steering system and if you are having the same issue then GM UK still have not fixed the issues in later models. 2011 is not an old car and a vehicle of that age with a typical hydraulic power steering system would not be failing. You will probably find one or more critical sensors in the electric PS system you have has failed and in that event the whole power steering system has shut down. Once the electric motor that provides the steering assistance is shut down you have no power assistance whatsoever.

Hi my eps light is comming on and i lose power streering how do i fix it


It cannot be fixed until the problem with the Electronic Power Steering(EPS) is properly diagnosed.
The power assist system is comprised of...
  • EPS computer unit
  • Warning light on the dashboard
  • A connection to the OBD2 Diagnostic port in the car
  • A Vehicle speed sensor
  • A sensor which detects steering rotation on the input shaft of the steering rack
  • An electric motor, which provides the power steering assistance to the steering rack. Unless that motor runs you will have no power assistance to your steering.
  1. You will need to have the system scanned with the appropriate scan tool through the OBD port in the car. This will generate various fault codes which assist in diagnosing where the problem lies in the power steering system. It may be just a failed sensor that needs replacing or it might be a bigger problem.
  2. Once the fault codes have been pulled the mechanics can diagnose the cause and make whatever repairs or parts changes may be required.
  3. This is not a do it yourself exercise. You will need a mechanic who knows these Japanese electronic power steering systems and who understands the fault codes (and there are many of them on this EPS system) to diagnose the problem for you and fix whatever fault(s) has arisen.

The running bords on my 2008 Yukon stop working


Circuit/System Description
The assist step control module (ASC) controls the running board actuators to extend or retract the running boards. Each actuator consists of an electric motor and a potentiometer. The module supplies a low reference and 10-volt reference source voltage to the potentiometer. The ASC control module monitors the voltage drop across the potentiometer on the position signal circuit. When the actuator shaft rotates, the voltage on the position signal circuit changes. The ASC control module supplies the actuator motor with a 12-volt control circuit and a ground control circuit. The ASC module controls the direction of the actuator by changing the polarity of the control circuits.
You should take this to a ASE certified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to check for stored DTC'S in the running board control module . A code reader for check engine light codes will not work for this system !
This system can set numerous DTC'S

How do I get rid of my "Service Park Assist" message?


{: ) The "Service Park Assist" message cannot be erased or reset until the main cause of the problem is resolved. It will just keep on coming back. Let's say one or more of the park assist sensors are faulty, you should have it repaired or replaced first before the scan tool can successfully clear the trouble codes that were present then.
The SERVICE PARK ASSIST message is a reminder that a fault has been detected by the parking assist system and it will disable this system until the problem is being addressed. A scan tool can effectively trace the cause of the fault.

On my 2004 Jetta 1,8T the brakes are starting to get hard. Taking s little more pressure on the brake pedal to stop the car. What could be causing this??? Thanks


The most likely cause is loss of power assistance to the braking system which means you will need to apply increased brake pressure to compensate for the loss of assistance.

The problem will be with the brake servo assist. It is possible there is a leak in the brake servo assist system, which reduces the vacuum, so you are not getting sufficient mechanical assistance when applying the brakes.

It is unwise to be driving the car with this condition. If you lose all power assistance to the brakes, which could easily occur with this fault, the pedal will become very hard, you will need to apply very high pedal pressure and the vehicle will be very difficult to stop. You need to take the car to a VW dealer for service or to a competent brake specialist in your area to inspect the system and rectify the fault.

VW did a recall on some earlier year models for a leaking brake servo and I understand the problem was a faulty vacuum hose which would fail and leak. I am not aware of any recall for this item on later models like your 2004 vehicle.

All the best.

Ac/heater motor resistor


Hi,

Are you looking for instructions to replace it?

If yes, kindly read the below :-

The blower resistor is a very common fault in this system, I would remove it for inspection, it is located next to the blower motor under the passenger side instrument panel. Inspect it for signs of "burning", replace it if anything is found.

I have a cousin with a shop in Montreal and he is having a problem with a 01 bmw 740 il,so im posting for him,the power steering shuts down when pulling into a parking spot or going slow,this vehicle has...


Power steering does not seem to have any assist when at a stop. Tests/Procedures: 1. The power steering assist is speed dependent and should be quite easy when stopped/low speeds. This is controlled by a solenoid on the side of the steering gear box.

2. Check for faults in all control modules. The general module is what controls current flow through the solenoid. Clear all faults and see if power steering operation is normal.

3. At the servo, check for power and ground from the general module. If none present, check wiring back to general module connector X254, pin 9, Black/White and pin 11, Black/Red.

4. Replace solenoid as necessary.

5. Disconnecting the solenoid will remove the variable assist function, but the steering system should still have considerable assist. If it does not with the solenoid disconnected, consider hydraulic faults as the most likely cause. A failed power steering pump is much more likely than the steering gear. Potential Causes: Defective General Module
Defective Power Steering Control Solenoid
Defective Power Steering Pump
Damaged Wiring
If your cousin has access to wiring diagrams he will be greatly advantaged in diagnosing this issue Good luck
