Limited performance indicates that the ecm put the engine in the low power mode due to a problem encountered with a sensor ( low oil level-pressure, overheat /low coolant level, gear box temperature over heat, loose position sensor/s . Run the fault codes first to determine where the faults are. Check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt)

2001 jeep grand cherokee limited is armed but lost keyless entry remote and wont start. is there anyway to bypass alarm so it will start?


Usually you can lock all the doors. Open the drivers door with the key, this will unarm the security. If not, try the passenger side.

What causes the "Reduced Engine Power", "Service Stability Control" and "Traction Control" warning lights to come on?


the "Reduced Engine Power", problem causes the PCM to disable "Service Stability Control" and "Traction Control" turning on the warning lights to come on for those systems . The reduced engine power is because of a problem with the electronic throttle control system or as GM calls it TAC system . Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the PCM detects a condition with the TAC system, the PCM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The PCM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The PCM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The PCM will turn OFF the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The PCM will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the TP, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned OFF.
- Ignore the accelerator pedal input.
• Engine shutdown mode--The PCM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
