I suggest you take your vehicle in to have a computer diagnostic ran on it. They'll probably have to reset it with their equipment.

Hey i have a 2008 chevy cobalt 2.2 automatic, eng pwr reduced, car takes awhile to start and then when it does starts it runs right rough and only goes 40 km or so


If a warning light is on, there's a trouble code stored in the computer. There are well over 800-1,000 possible trouble codes in the average late model vehicle, so asking us to guess what's causing your problem without knowing the code is a complete waste of time. Get the code read. Post it here. THEN we can help

2008 Holden Colorado wont start and no dash lights


Check your ecm fuse, or your main power relay fuses, basically just check all the fuses under the dash and under the hood, if there are a few relays under the hood, you can try and swap the ac relay with the power relay as long as they have the same numbers on them. If all the fuses are good, it is most likely a relay, or the ignition switch itself

I have a 2003 Cadillac CTS. It continues to go into reduced power mode. How do I correct that.


Are you getting a ENGINE POWER REDUCED message ? Is the check engine light on ?
Reduced Engine Power Mode
Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System
electronic throttle control .
When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
?€¢
Limited torque


?€¢
Limited range of throttle movement


?€¢
Engine OFF


Your going to need to take this to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer , you probably don't have the diagnostic tools to trouble shoot this problem.

I have an 06 cobalt and recently my car started to suddenly lose power while driving. It says reduce engine power when this happens. If I turn the car off for a minute it'll go away.


This has nothing to do with the Catalytic converter ! Plugged catalytic converters don't go away after shutting off the vehicle !
This reduced engine power has to do with the
Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System
Reduced Engine Power Mode When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
?€¢
Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.


?€¢
Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.


?€¢
Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.


?€¢
Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:


-
Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned off.


-
Ignore the accelerator pedal input.


?€¢
Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

Engine power reduced, service traction


when you have the fault codes read to find the exact sensor failure or cause , have it fixed then reset the ecm as the ecm will reduce the performance(limp mode) for safety reasons

The reduced engine power light is on in my 2005 Chevy Cobalt. In addition, it's sounds as though it's barely running. Any idea what it can be? The check engine light is on also, however I addressed...


The check engine light being on now is a different problem , Have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes checked ,will have something to do with electronic throttle control . That is what reduced engine power is about . It's in a reduced power mode.
Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned off.
- Ignore the accelerator pedal input.
• Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

Do you know what electronic throttle control is ?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description

The throttle actuator control (TAC) system delivers improved throttle response and greater reliability and eliminates the need for mechanical cable. The TAC system performs the following functions:
• Accelerator pedal position sensing
• Throttle positioning to meet driver and engine demands
• Throttle position sensing
• Internal diagnostics
• Cruise control functions
• Manage TAC electrical power consumption
The TAC system includes the following components:
• The accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors
• The throttle body assembly
• The engine control module (ECM)

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

I have a 2003 Saturn L300 6 cylinder. Last week the reduced power light came on and stays on every time the car is driven. The car performs the same but the heater is not working normally. Takes longer to...


This has nothing to do with the heat on the vehicle .
Reduced Power
The reduced power telltale is turned ON by the cluster when it receives a command from the body control module (BCM). The engine control module (ECM) (L81) engine sends a message to the BCM over the CAN serial data link.
The reduced power telltale is illuminated when the ECM is limiting engine torque in a low traction situation. This telltale is used only for the V6 (L81) engine application.
The reduced power telltale is turned ON by the cluster for 2-3 seconds, when the ignition is turned to RUN, for a visual system check.

Taking the vehicle to a qualified repair shop an having it diagnosed would be your best . Unless you have a factory tech 2 scan tool to read BCM DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's an have factory diagnostic repair info.
Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.

My 2005 c5500 only does 20 mph,changed fuel filter,engine light is on


There is an issues that prompt the ECM to put the "reduced engine power" mode to activate. Your going to have to get the DTC code to addressed the issue so the ECM will deactivate the "reduced engine power" mode.
Thank you for using Fixya and Auto Zone can scan free of charge and give you the recommendation to address the issue and as why your engine is in the reduced power mode. Good luck
