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.

Car is in "limp home" - reduced engine power mode

check and see if the traction control light, abs light are on the dash. those things can put your car in a reduction mode, because the computer thinks you are on a skid

What does this DIAGNOSTIC code P01A4 for pt cruiser mean please help

The engine management light comes on to inform you that the engine is not working correctly and it stores a fault code in the ECU with information on what is wrong. You can only access this information via a diagnostic device.
If the DME (engine) ECU keeps on seeing a fault on the engine operation it then goes into limp mode to protect the engine from damage (low power or stops) when you cycle the ignition it can reset the ECU and the process starts again (depending on what the fault is).

I remember something about some codes being in hex or base sixteen so did a hex to decimal conversion and got 420... Car is not strictly obd compliant as I think 03 onwards for diesel but I think the code is hex so should be p0420. If it is, cat below efficency, check what the lambda after cat is showing in live data.

I advise you to take your car to a Chrysler main dealership or specialist to have a real time diagnostic check done so a full diagnose can be given (this will have a set charge of approx 20 mins labour).

It could be a failed part on the engine system or just a software glitch that will require an ECU programme update.

Hope helped.
